Warner, 32, was picked up at a pub by the driver and allegedly became combative and insulting as she first told the driver to ignore his GPS and then told him to follow it when they became lost.

In Platt’s recording, a woman can be heard calling him names, including “an idiot,” “a legitimate retard” and “stupid.” She is objecting to his demanding that she leave his car and insists that he take her home. She keeps insisting that what he is doing is kidnapping based on his “reckless conduct” — an obviously inebriated misstatement of the law.
The six-year veteran of the office was fired by District Attorney Faith Johnson after a “thorough investigation.” She issue a statement that “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.”
