Video can't back up soldier's claim he was kicked out of cab

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Surveillance video from the Nashville Greyhound Bus Depot can't back up a soldier's story about being kicked out of a cab.

Kentucky National Guard member Allen Pendley told News 2 earlier this month that he got into a Yellow Cab at the Nashville bus station Sunday, November 3, but was ordered out of the vehicle after he answered yes to the driver's question about being in the Army.

Pendley believed it was a Yellow Cab, but Thursday officials from the taxi company said Greyhound surveillance doesn't show a soldier getting into any cab on the Sunday afternoon in question.

Yellow Cab assistant general manager Marvin Sutton told News 2 the taxi company asked Greyhound to look at video from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the date in question that covers the entrances and exits from the bus station.

"Greyhound told us they did not see anyone in a Yellow Cab there during that time period, they did not even see a Yellow Cab there," Sutton said. "Two ladies got into a Yellow Cab after 5 p.m., but no soldiers getting in."

Pendley, who served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, previously told News 2 he was picked up around 3:30 p.m. by a Yellow Cab driver that he believed "had a Somali accent."

He told News 2 Thursday he "doesn't know why it wasn't on there, I may have been too far away from the cameras."

Yellow Cab's Sutton said, "Something happened down there that day, I wonder if it could have been another cab, possibly an illegal one operating without a license."

Pendley has also filed a complaint with the Transportation Licensing Commission, which regulates Nashville's cabs.
