"After careful consideration and a thorough investigation, I have made a decision to terminate Ms. Warner", Johnson said in a statement.

Platt says Warner's behavior escalated to verbal and even physical abuse.

Despite what may or may not have happened Friday night, Warner was sacked from her job by Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson on Monday afternoon. The district attorney's office confirmed that an investigation has been launched when reached by The Post on Monday. "I'm a district attorney".

"I just want to apologize for my language", she said at a press conference Monday.

"Then we'll wait for the cops", the woman retorts. "That was not my intent but you don't treat people that way". Jesus Christ, you're a f-- idiot in a stupid f-- hat. Oh my God, you're an idiot.

"I'm pretty sure that I had a destination and you have not taken me to that destination". He said he proceeded to pull over but initially hesitated to call the police, saying he wanted to give Warner a "chance" after she told him she was a district attorney. At one point, the recording indicates, she said, "I think this might be a kidnapping", and added that she could call police and arrange a beating.

The 26-year-old driver stated that Warner tried to use her job title as a tool of intimidation, and implied that her relationship with law enforcement officers would help her in the scuffle. "I said, 'You know what?"

After a Dallas prosecutor was sacked from her job in the district attorney's office for an altercation with an Uber driver, she apologized Tuesday for her actions, saying she "was wrong". "Either drop me off at my house or we'll wait for the cops because I'm not wrong". "I said, 'Should I take a left, should I take a right?' And she became angry and said why couldn't I follow the (expletive) Global Positioning System?" "All I wanted to do was get home safely that night". She retorts that he's kidnapping her and committing a felony.

Ignoring the driver's demands for her to leave the vehicle, she then told him, "Dude, everything's being reported", adding, "I'm an assistant district attorney so shut the [expletive] up". No criminal charges have been filed.

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 waver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff", she said.

According to the driver, Warner got agitated when she felt the route the driver was taking was incorrect.

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

A former Dallas County prosecutor came to Warner's defense online.

"There's two sides to every event", Schulte tweeted.

But she continued to berate the driver. "I don't believe the DA's office has all the facts", Frizell said. She wrote, in part, "I am so excited to be a ROOKIE on Team Blonde this year and to participate in the incredible organization that is BvB Dallas ('Blondes v. Brunettes')". But the law enforcement official simply asked him if he "was good" and when Platt reluctantly confirmed that he was, Warner left with the officer in his vehicle.
