Morgan Stanley Executive Pretty Pleased To Have Stabbing Charges Dropped

The criminal case against a former Morgan Stanley executive charged with stabbing a cab driver following a fare dispute was dropped Monday after a Connecticut state’s attorney revealed that the driver never turned the knife over to police. The driver, Mohamed Ammar, “had the knife the whole time,” said supervisory assistant state’s attorney Steven Weiss. “He had ample opportunity to tell police and he didn’t do that.” […] Weiss emphasized that Jennings didn’t immediately call police and described him as uncooperative. But he said Ammar couldn’t adequately explain why he never gave the knife to investigators, even after an interview and a search of his cab. “I simply can’t go forward when I have a witness who didn’t cooperate with police,” Weiss said of Ammar. Jennings attended the brief hearing and thanked his family and attorney. “Obviously it feels good,” he said outside court. [WSJ, earlier]

    Afterwards, Jennings said "I just want to thank The Lord Jesus for giving me the strength to get through this. Without him none of this would be possible. I am a blessed person. And thanks to my grandma who taught me how to be a man. And to my baby mama, for sticking with me through all of this. And also thanks to Morgan Stanley. You guys are the best. I promise never to stab anyone ever again. I will keep my head down do my best everyday. Peace everyone."

    If the knife you cannot place, you must drop the case.

    Jennings was arrested later Monday and charged with assault following a dispute in his cab from the courthouse. The dispute apparently stemmed from the cab driver's inability to accept credit card payments at that time.

    Well, this one looks like it went better than his last courtroom appearance, which was a monkey of a trial.

  12. Ray Lewis says:

    WBJ, you have some potential. Props.
