"I said, 'ma'am you need to exit my vehicle.' She said 'you're supposed to take me home.' I said 'I understand that but you just crossed the line, '" Platt said.

According to her LinkedIn page, Jody Warner worked as an assistant district attorney for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office for six years and 10 months, starting in the position in February 2011.

He made a decision to call 911 and began to record the rest of the encounter. "I mean no harm to her", Mr Platt said.

What happened during the ride?

Platt added that she told him, "Who are they going to believe?"

"I'm not ever going to justify anything that I said, there's just a little more too it and I was wrong".

The prosecutor allegedly slapped the driver on his shoulder.

But he ended the ride on the Uber app as Warner threatened that he was "never going to work again" and that she "knows people". "I appreciate being given the opportunity to give my side". "Then the cop said, 'You good?' and I said, 'I guess so.' I should've said, 'No, I'm not good.' It was intimidating". Either drop me off at my house or wait for the cops.

Explained the victimized Uber driver, 'I didn't want to get her in trouble, ' before eventually demanding Warner to get out.

Platt called police after Warner refused to leave his vehicle, adding that she struck him. "She kept saying she's an assistant DA and said, 'Who are they gonna believe?"

"I'm in the news, sweetheart, and I will f-- sue this place", McHenry said, before calling the clerk a college dropout and insulting her appearance. "You're kind of right.' So I took out my phone and I recorded it". "All I wanted to do was get home safely that night".

What did the cops do when they arrived?

According to Platt, Warner asked Platt to change directions from the route called for on his Global Positioning System and he got lost.

What's wrong with our world is we've forgotten how to love one another", she said, according to the post. In the post , Bowlin says the cashier then took the man's hands and dumped the change on the encounter.

"I don't know who that gentleman is and no one deserves to be spoken that way", Pratt said.

"So you're kidnapping me", the woman said.

Platt said Warner left with the officer in his patrol auto.

"Then we'll just wait for the cops".

"After reviewing this incident and speaking with the complainant who called 911, the Dallas Police Department has determined that the officer's involvement was within departmental policies and procedures", Dallas Police said in a statement.

A former Dallas County prosecutor came to Warner's defense online. He said she became upset when he tried to initiate small talk and grew angrier after she asked him to change directions.

"We expect riders to treat drivers with respect".

Uber is also looking into the incident.

Have charges been filed against the assistant DA?

District Attorney Faith Johnson released a statement regarding the incident which she said Warner's actions are beneath the integrity of the District Attorney's Office. "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".

'After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have chose to terminate Ms. Warner.
