Warner's full apology released to the media addresses the incident: "I cringe whenever I hear or think about the things that I said that night". "That's not who I am".
What did the cops do when they arrived?He said that the former assistant district attorney became belligerent, hit him, belittled him and threatened him during the trip. I can tell you that not everything he said was true. "I just want to go home".
Warner: No! Everything's being recorded.
But she continued to accuse him of kidnapping her since he did not take her to the requested destination, while he repeatedly told her to exit the vehicle. He told the Dallas Morning News that Warner told him to deviate from the directions his Global Positioning System gave for her home, and he got lost.
"I'm not kidnapping you", Platt responded. Warner: "No, because now I am pissed the (expletive) off".
"We'll wait for the cops then if that's what you think is appropriate", she continued.
"Then we'll wait for the cops", the woman retorts. That's when the driver chose to pull over and asked that his passenger leave the vehicle.
"I said, "Should I make a left up here?' and she refused to answer me".
She said because of her work with sex assault victims, "I'm always a little bit more on edge". "She's wishing she had chosen different words and hadn't used the language she used". "I'm not proud of it", Warner stated, adding that there is no excuse for talking to other people that way. "I'm not trying to make myself a victim". Thus, he called 911 and hit record, according to the Dallas newspaper. Warner told Platt she was a prosecutor and he would regret his actions.
The Dallas District Attorney released a statement regarding Warner's termination, calling her behavior "contrary to this office's core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated". Her cases in the office have already been reassigned.
Platt said he forgives Warner, partly because he knows she was intoxicated and he's "sure she's a good person when she's sober".
But some others are not apologizing. But the cop and Warner, who was "let off the hook", left in a police auto, he told the Dallas Morning News.
The Dallas Police Department said the agency then contacted the District Attorney's Office, which launched an investigation into the incident. "I am asking for the DA to take another look at all the facts". However, instead of taking her into custody, authorities reportedly gave her a ride home.
"This was a hasty move by Ms. Johnson", Schulte added, arguing that it should not have been a fireable offense. 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')". It should also be noted that Frizell is campaigning to replace Johnson as the next Dallas County District Attorney.
