Uber Driver Tapes Drink-Fueled Rant, Dallas Prosecutor Is Fired

A Texas Uber driver says he was threatened and insulted by an intoxicated Dallas prosecutor while taking her home, and she's now lost her job with the DA's office, per the Washington Post.

Shaun Platt, 26, tells ABC News that while transporting 32-year-old Jody Warner home from a pub Friday she took issue with his route and got nasty. 

He says the assistant DA called him an "idiot," a "retard," and a "f---ing joke," and that he finally pulled over and asked her to get out. He says he called the cops after she refused, mused out loud "this might be a kidnapping," and even hit him. Platt says she also threw her job title around and said, "Who are [the cops] gonna believe, you or me?"—at which point, he noted, "'You're kind of right,' so I took out my phone and I recorded it." He ultimately gave the recording to the Dallas Morning News.
