Former United Cab driver Habib Hashi, the man who accused former Titans star Keith Bulluck of ripping a $100 bill from his pocket, says he will be in court Friday.
Friday's court appearance will be the first time the pair have seen each other since the alleged incident in the wee hours of August 25 that left Bulluck facing felony robbery charges after Hashi swore out a warrant.
"I will be there," Hashi told News 2 while acknowledging that he quit driving for United Cabs in the wake of the incident.
Hashi also said he has been spending time out-of-state, but planned to meet Thursday with Rosemary Sexton of the District Attorneys office.
Hashi has retained Nashville lawyer Michael Rowan to represent him in court for Friday's preliminary hearing.
Rowan told News 2 Thursday that "the issue is whether Keith Bulluck took his own $100 bill that he'd given the cabbie, or did he take a $100 bill the cabbie already had."
Bulluck's attorney Bryan Lewis reiterated Thursday what he told News 2 last week about Friday's hearing by saying, "we'll be loaded for bear," and "have multiple witnesses."
Rowan told News 2 that seven witnesses have been subpoenaed by Bulluck's team, but "common sense will tell you, seven people were not in the cab. Nobody saw what happened."
When asked about his own witnesses, Rowan said, "We will have some."
One of those who have been subpoenaed by Bulluck's team is Hashi's former boss at Yellow Cab, Doug Trimble.
