Johnson issued a statement which said, "Her behavior is contrary to this office's core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated".

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

The Dallas County District Attorney made a decision to fire Jody Warner, 32, who had been assigned to the crimes against children division, after media reports featuring an audio recording captured highlighted Warner's alleged abuse of an Uber driver who picked her up from an East Dallas pub.

Following the publication of the incriminating recording by the Dallas Morning News, the District Attorney's Office said that an internal investigation into the incident had been launched and would provide more information in due time.

The argument led to Warner's firing by Dallas District Attorney Faith Johnson on Monday. "I was in an uncomfortable situation", she said.

"Then we'll just wait for the cops". It was insane... She can't treat people like that just because I'm not a doctor or a lawyer or someone she hangs around.

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

'Then we'll wait for the cops, Jesus Christ, you're a [expletive] idiot in a stupid [expletive] hat, ' the Dallas prosecutor continues. Oh my God, you're an idiot. Platt: "I'm asking you politely to please step out of my vehicle". Platt says he pulled over and asked Warner to get out of the auto, but she refused. She yelled at friends out the window as the auto drove off, and Platt said he tried to initiate small talk but she wasn't being friendly.

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. I'll make sure Uber knows what a f-- joke you are.

A Dallas prosecutor has been fired from her job after she allegedly became belligerent with an Uber driver, hit him after he got lost, and threatened him with kidnapping charges after he asked her to exit his vehicle. "Then the cop said 'You good?' and I said 'I guess so.' I should've said, 'No, I'm not good.' It was intimidating". So do you want to take me home or do you want to stay here? "I think this might be kidnapping right now, actually", Warner said in the recording.

House to require training to prevent sexual harassment
Until Ryan's announcement Tuesday, there was no requirement for sexual harassment training in the House of Representatives. She said that when she was just starting her career in politics, the chief of staff in her office sexually assaulted her.

Warner: "And I want to go home so badly, but you're so stupid". She retorts that he's kidnapping her and committing a felony. Thus, he called 911 and hit record, according to the Dallas newspaper. When she refused, he called the police.

He reported the incident to Uber, anxious that his passenger would follow through with her threats, and said he only wanted an apology from Warner for "belittling" him and "way worse".

When the DA's office got wind of what happened, they fired Warner. I will not waiver on my expectation of the highest integrity for myself or my staff.

A former Dallas County prosecutor came to Ms Warner's defence on Twitter, urging the public not to rush to judgment.

"There's two sides to every event", Schulte tweeted. 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')". "I don't believe the DA's office has all the facts", Frizell said.
