NASTY DALLAS PROSECUTOR JODY WARNER FIRED AFTER BELITTLING AND HITTING AN UBER DRIVER: ‘”Who are they going to believe? I’m a district attorney”
( Daily Mail ) An Uber driver was driving a Dallas prosecutor home from a bar when he claims the woman got angry at him for getting lost, physically and verbally attacked him, and then accused him of kidnapping her.
Shaun Platt, 26, recorded a portion of his interaction with Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Jody Warner, who can be hurling expletives at the driver, repeatedly calling him ‘an idiot,’ and demanding that he take her home, despite his pleas that she get out of the car.
The District Attorney’s Office sent a statement to DailyMail.com Monday evening announcing Warner’s termination.
‘After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have decided to terminate Ms. Warner,’ District Attorney Faith Johnson stated. ‘Although criminal charges have not been filed, her behavior is contrary to this office’s core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated.
‘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.’
Speaking to the Dallas Morning News, Platt said it all started when he picked up Warner, 32, at Capitol Pub in Old East Dallas on Friday night.
The Uber driver said Warner appeared inebriated and angry, and things only got worse after the passenger told him to follow a route that was different from the GPS directions, which caused him to get lost.
‘I said, “Should I make a left up here?” and she refused to answer me,’ Platt said. ‘She said, “You can follow the [expletive] GPS” and she became increasingly angry, even though I was just trying to get her home.’
According to Platt, Warner continued name-calling and berating him. 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.
Platt said he wanted to call police right away but decided to give Warner a chance to leave on her own, as she continued saying she was a DA.
Fed up with his customer’s antics, Platt ended the ride on the Uber app. He says Warner threatened him that he was ‘never going to work again and told him she ‘knows people.’
‘”Who are they going to believe? I’m a district attorney,”‘ the ride-sharing driver quoted Warner as warning him.
Platt eventually called 911 to summon police and turned on the recording device.
