Prosecutor loses job after Uber meltdown threatening driver

"She said "I'm the DA" and she said [to the cop] 'Can I speak with you?' and he pulled her aside away from me," Platt said.

Added Warner, 'Who are they going to believe?

"So under the law, it's recklessly keeping me from where I was going and you have done that", the woman said.

'Then we'll wait for the cops, Jesus Christ, you're a [expletive] idiot in a stupid [expletive] hat, ' the Dallas prosecutor continues. That was just the start of the alleged tirade, which occurred after Platt picked up Warner, 32, at a bar in Old East Dallas on November 10, 2017.

Platt told the Dallas Morning News that Warner became angry after she told him to make a turn that wasn't on the Global Positioning System and he got lost. She also says, "you're so stupid, I want the cops to come, I want the cops to come so that they can [expletive] you up...that's what I want". "All I wanted to do was get home safely that night". "That was not my intent but you don't treat people that way". "I'm not proud of it", Jody Warner said at a press conference as she fought back tears. "You are a legitimate (expletive)", Warner said in the recording.

"I'm pretty sure that I had a destination and you have not taken me to that destination".

The 26-year-old driver stated that Warner tried to use her job title as a tool of intimidation, and implied that her relationship with law enforcement officers would help her in the scuffle. "I'm a district attorney". She also says, "I think this might be kidnapping right now actually..." I was just telling Facebook friends and when I get home I have thousands of views.

He reported the incident to Uber, anxious that his passenger would follow through with her threats, and said he only wanted an apology from Warner for "belittling" him and "way worse". "I'm an assistant district attorney so shut the [expletive] up". Warner has worked for the district attorney's office for six years as a prosecutor in crimes against children.

She wrote: "After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have chose to terminate Ms. Warner".

"Although criminal charges have not been filed, her behaviour is contrary to this office's core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated", Johnson said in a written statement.

Platt said he was sorry the altercation "cost [Warner] her job". Overnight, Warner denied she ever hit Platt.

In the audio recording, Warner was heard repeatedly cursing at her Uber driver. I will not waiver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff.

Cpl. DeMarquis Black, a spokesman for the Dallas Police Department, said the agency has contacted the district attorney's office and is investigating the incident.

Warner then apparently thought the driver was up to no good.

But she continued to berate the driver.

"She can't treat people like that just because I'm not a doctor or a lawyer or someone she hangs around", Platt says.

Jody Warner Dallas prosecutor fired: My obligation as a public servant reconsidered.

. She wrote, in part, "I am so excited to be a ROOKIE on Team Blonde this year and to participate in the incredible organization that is BvB Dallas ('Blondes v. Brunettes')".
