Can somone be denied a rental car because of a bad credit rating?

Court F asked:

A friend of mine with bad credit tried to reserve a rental car online. Within 24 hours they responded that “your rental vehicle will not be available for your requested period” and that he would need to try with a different rental agency. Do rental car agencies run credit checks? Their response sounds to me like a polite way of saying that they didn’t want his business since they didn’t try to offer him another car.
