Judge drops charges against alleged Darien taxi cab attacker
A judge has dropped charges against a Darien man accused of attacking a cab driver over a disputed fare back in February. Mohammad Ammar says he gave William Jennings a ride from Manhattan to his Darien home when Jennings became upset with the fare. Ammar says the man then took out a knife and stabbed him. Prosecutors say they did not have enough evidence to continue to press charges, all while Jennings' attorney says his client never stabbed the driver and was instead abducted. Not long after the judge's ruling, Ammar held a news conference in Queens, asking for a federal investigation into the matter.
