Fired Dallas prosecutor says she felt 'uncomfortable' with Uber driver she berated

Fired Dallas prosecutor says she felt 'uncomfortable' with Uber driver she berated

Shaun Platt, the Uber driver, was driving Warner home from a bar Friday night when she became upset about directions and began threatening him.

Platt also said Warner accused him of holding her hostage in his vehicle.

After the passenger's behavior continued to worsen, Platt finally ended the Uber ride, asked the woman to get out and eventually called the police.

"We learned about the post in which you reference early Saturday morning and our office immediately launched an investigation, which is ongoing", the office of Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson said in a statement.

"Although criminal charges have not been filed, her behavior is contrary to this office's core principal of integrity and it will not be tolerated", Johnson said.

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

While Platt told The Dallas Morning News that "my only hope is that she learns from this and she apologizes", the outlet revealed Monday that Warner had been fired. He said that the former assistant district attorney became belligerent, hit him, belittled him and threatened him during the trip.

"It's not kidnapping. Ma'am you are free to leave", Platt responds.

"I would do anything to react differently", she said.

The officer returned and Platt said he was afraid of being arrested.

"No, it is because there was an Uber that had a destination and you have not taken me to that destination". "You're so stupid. I want the cops to come so that they can (expletive) you up".

He said Warner started to become visibly upset, especially after she told him to change directions from the Global Positioning System and he got lost.

Platt told the Morning News that he reported the incident to Uber and the company assured him that his app wouldn't match up with her again.

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

Contacted by HuffPost on Monday, a spokesperson for Dallas police said, "We're still trying to gather information about this case".

According to the Dallas Morning News, the 32-year-old prosecutor was sacked on Monday following a "thorough investigation".

Warner had worked in the office for six years and was a prosecutor in the crimes against children unit, Dallas News reports. Platt did not, however, intend for Warner to lose her job. Image via social media.

Frizell said her decision to stand by Warner was not political but rather to offer support to someone she described as an "excellent prosecutor".

"It was unacceptable, and no one deserves to be called names", Warner said. While he was on hand Tuesday to speak in favor of Warner, Schulte is not actually representing her at this time.
