Shaun Platt, an Uber driver just doing his job, picked up Dallas County Assistant District Attorney Jody Warner after a night out drinking. At some point, he refused to continue the ride, asked her to leave, and even called the cops.
Ms. Warner had apparently already been physically and verbally attacking him for simply getting lost.
She then drunkenly tried to talk her way out of it by accusing him of kidnapping her — and continued to insist he take her home.
At the end of the audio clip, too, and maybe I’m reaching here, but it sorta sounded to me like she was implying something illicit with him.
Look… I don’t want to mix politics into this particular post but I’ll bet a 6-pack she’s a Hillary supporter.
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.’
‘Oh, my God, you’re going to regret this so much,’ Warner says in the audio recording obtained by the Morning News.
She later calls the driver ‘a f***ing idiot,’ ‘a legitimate retard’ and ‘stupid.’
‘I want to go home so badly but you’re so stupid I want the cops to come so that they can f*** you up, that’s what I want,’ Warner tells Platt.
Ignoring Platt’s repeated demands that she exit his car, Warner is heard in the audio telling him: ‘I’m an assistant district attorney so shut the f*** up.’
The situation then takes an unexpected turn when the 32-year-old prosecutor accuses Platt of kidnapping her by refusing to take her to her destination, even though the driver points out that she is free to leave.
‘Under the law, it’s recklessly keeping me from when i was going, and you have done that, ‘ she tells the man. ‘You’re kidnapping me. You’re committing a third- to first-degree felony.’
