Dallas Assistant District Attorney Jody Warner was sacked after an Uber driver alleged that she hit him, insulted him and accused him of kidnapping her.

"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", District Attorney Faith Johnson said in a statement.

Platt said he ended the ride after the confrontation, called the police and asked her to get out.

Platt told me earlier it wasn't his intention for her to be fired, but he did feel like she should at least apologize. "You're kind of right.' So I took out my phone and I recorded it".

During the ride, Warner, who was apparently in an inebriated state, reportedly struck and hurled insults at Platt after he asked her to clarify directions to her residence. "Some of the things she said off the record were belittling me for being a driver". "But I didn't call the cops".

A Dallas prosecutor was sacked following reports of a drunken meltdown in an Uber ride where she threatened to accuse the driver of kidnapping her.

Added Warner, 'Who are they going to believe? I'm a district attorney'.

Five minutes later, Platt called 911 and began recording as he waited for police to respond.

"The woman is heard warning Platt he was "going to regret this so much", calling him a "[expletive] idiot in a stupid [expletive] hat" and telling him to "shut the [expletive] up". 'You had the opportunity to take me home.

The woman proceeds to tell the driver that "everything's being recorded" as he continues to ask Warner to just get out of the auto. "But you don't treat people that way".

Platt could be heard asking his passenger to leave the vehicle but she remained inside, getting more agitated.

"Oh my God, you're an idiot".

"She actually hit me", Platt recalled during an interview with ABC News. He said the problems began when she told him to drive in a different direction than his Global Positioning System program instructed him.

"We'll wait for the cops then if that's what you think is appropriate", she continued.

"It's not kidnapping, ma'am. You're free to leave", Platt informed her.

She accuses him of kidnapping her. So do you want to take me home or do you want to stay here?

"She's embarrassed", said Dallas attorney Pete Schulte, who says he's a friend of Warner's but does not represent her legally.

"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," Platt told the newspaper. "Then the cop said 'You good?' and I said 'I guess so.' I should've said, 'No, I'm not good.' It was intimidating". FOX4 was unable to reach Warner for comment. That was just the start of the alleged tirade, which occurred after Platt picked up Warner, 32, at a bar in Old East Dallas on November 10, 2017.

A former Dallas County prosecutor came to Warner's defense online. That prompted Warner to threaten him, saying he was "never going to work again" and that she "knows people", according to Platt. "What a joke. Jesus Christ, I'll make sure Uber knows what an [expletive] joke you are".

Platt said he was sorry the altercation "cost [Warner] her job".
