Nashville Cab Driver Mows Down Passsengers After Religious Argument (Updated)

cabclipRED.gifIbrahim Ahmed was arrested Sunday after police said he ran over one of his passengers after they got into a religious argument.

Ibrahim Ahmed, 37, a driver for United Cab, was arrested and charged with assault and attempted homicide for trying to hit two customers early Sunday morning.

"When they exited the vehicle, after having paid the cab driver for their fare, that's when the cab driver chased them down across the parking lot and ran them down," Officer John Pepper told WSMV-TV in Nashville.

Jeremy Invus was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries. Another passenger, Andrew Nelson, avoided the cab.

The passengers -- college students from Ohio visiting Nashville -- got into an argument over religion with the driver as he was dropping them off at the Vanderbilt University campus, police said.

Hmmmmmm. Perhaps a bit of sudden jihad syndrome?

Update: Fox News reports that Ibrahim Ahmed is a Sunni Muslim from Somalia.
