Va. taxicab driver pursues charges after anti-Muslim rant; second incident reported since May

For the second time in as many months, a Muslim civil rights group is pursuing criminal charges on behalf of a taxicab driver who was subjected to an anti-Islamic rant caught on tape.

In the most recent case, an Ashburn, Va., woman unleashed a string of expletives and called 911 to report she was afraid for her life because she said her cabbie, Abdikar Aden of Alexandria, was "very Muslim."

Aden says the woman also poked him repeatedly in the back.

The Council on American Islamic Relations, which is representing Aden, wrote to the Fairfax County commonwealth's attorney on Tuesday asking him to prosecute the case as a hate crime.

The woman, identified in a police report as Jennifer Crabbe, did not return calls seeking comment.
