The Connecticut banker accused of stabbing a New York City cab driver after an expensive late-night trip will have the charges against him dropped on Monday, the Post reports. Morgan Stanley bond-underwriting chief William Bryan Jennings was charged with a hate crime after allegedly refusing to pay the $204 fare from Manhattan to his $3.4 million house in Darien and attacking the driver while yelling, “Go back to your own fucking country! I’m going to kill you, motherfucker!” The driver, Mohamed Ammar, refused to let him out of the vehicle and then contradicted himself in police statements, while Ammar’s lawyer said his client “is outraged by the prosecutor’s decision and continues to demand justice.” He also never got that fare.
