Dallas DA Fires Prosecutor After Incident With Uber Driver

She said because of her work with sex assault victims, "I'm always a little bit more on edge". Platt then called the police and that's when he said the woman hit him.

"After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have chose to terminate Ms. Warner", Johnson said in a statement, according to the New York Post. I'm not trying to make any accusations against that driver. From there the Uber driver pulled over, while initially hesitating to call cops, saying he wanted to give Warner a 'chance' after she told him she was a district attorney. She was a prosecutor in the DA's Crimes Against Children section. Frizell resigned as a judge this year to run for district attorney.

Platt picked her up outside a Dallas bar, and the two argued over what route to take home.

"You're kidnapping me", she said. "Her concern was heightened". Platt said he declined to press charges once officers arrived.

Platt alleged that Warner seemed to get angrier on the ride and things escalated after he got lost when she told him to follow a route that was different from the Global Positioning System directions.

"Her behavior is contrary to this office's core principle of integrity" the office said in a statement.

She also slapped him on the shoulder, which prompted the driver to pull over on the side of the road and ask the passenger to exit the vehicle. "I'm not going to follow through on your cases; I know I promised you all I would".

Platt did not file criminal charges against Warner.

"Take me home, dude". That being said, the audio doesn't tell you that I was in a situation that made me feel very uncomfortable and I became defensive and eventually angry.

"I just want an apology". "I forgive her." But Warner's employer was not so forgiving. She wrote: "After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have chose to terminate Ms. Warner".

The DA continued, "As public servants, we represent the people of Dallas County and are examples, of justice, professionalism, and ethical behavior both inside and outside of the courtroom". I will not waiver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff.

The woman brings up her job, saying, "Everything's being recorded". You or me?' " Platt told ABC.

She also says she is an assistant district attorney, and that he's kidnapping her because he didn't take her to her requested destination. The district attorney's office confirmed that an investigation has been launched when reached by The Post on Monday.

After about five minutes, Platt says, he called 911 and started recording Warner.

The driver recorded the incident, and in the footage, a woman's voice is heard calling plat "stupid", "an idiot" and "a legitimate retard".

"Oh, my God, you're going to regret this so much", Warner, who had been working in the district attorney's office for six years, says in the audio recording obtained by the Morning News. However, others on Twitter were extremely unkind to Warner after listening to the audio and came to the defense of Platt, the driver, who is pictured above.

According to Crowdrise, Jody Warner, of Dallas, was part of a fundraising effort to raise money for Alzheimer's research.
