In a profanity-laced rant you can hear Assistant District Attorney Jody Warner berating Uber driverShaun Platt. According to Platt, Warner asked Platt to change directions from the route called for on his Global Positioning System and he got lost.
Platt picked her up outside a Dallas bar, and the two argued over what route to take home.
"I didn't want to get her in trouble", Platt told the newspaper before reconsidering and ending the ride by asking Warner to get out.
"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. I'm not ever going to justify anything that I said.
'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," reiterated Platt. 'Then the cop said, 'You good?' and I said, 'I guess so.' I should've said, 'No, I'm not good.' It was intimidating.
The ride-sharing service encourages both riders and drivers to call police or 911 if they feel unsafe or find themselves in an uncomfortable situation, as outlined in Uber's driver safety tips. Platt says he pulled over and asked Warner to get out of the vehicle, but she refused.
Platt did not file criminal charges against Warner. "She kept saying she's an assistant DA and said, 'Who are they gonna believe?" But she refuses to accept that, claiming that he was "recklessly keeping" her from where she was going. "You are a legitimate retard", she said. 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.
Johnson issued a statement which said, "Her behavior is contrary to this office's core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated".
"Ma'am I ended the ride and I asked you politely to exit the vehicle". "I'm an assistant district attorney, so shut the f*ck up". But the cop and Warner, who was "let off the hook", left in a police auto, he told the Dallas Morning News.
"It's not kidnapping. Ma'am you are free to leave", Platt responds.
Platt recounted his story to the Dallas publication, noting that Warner allegedly threatened him by saying he was "Never going to work again", and "Who are they going to believe? There's just a little bit more to it and I was wrong". "You're committing a third-to-first degree felony".
"After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have made a decision to terminate Ms. Warner". I will not waiver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff. "Take me home, dude", a woman's voice says. A Dallas police spokesperson told Huffington Post, "We're still trying to gather information about this case". Former judge Elizabeth Frizell and lawyer Pete Schulte also spoke to the media Tuesday, in Warner's defense.
But she continued to berate the driver.
Warner's social media pages, including Facebook and Twitter, appear to have been deleted.
