Officer Who Arrested Utah Nurse Placed On Administrative Leave

  • Officer grabs and arrests nurse doing her job

Now ABC News reports that Payne has been put on paid administrative leave.

Ms Wubbels has insisted she will not press charges but released the video of her wrongful arrest in the hope it will change how police officers act in future.

Gill said that both Mayor Jackie Biskupski and Chief of Police Mike Brown have agreed such an investigation is appropriate.

Even so, an officer with the Salt Lake City Police showed up asking for his blood.

At her news conference, Wubbels said her arrest amounted to "harassment" and called for better training of police officers.

Alex Wubbels was detained for trying to prevent officers from taking blood samples from an unconscious patient.

The policy states that blood can not be taken from a patient believed to be "under the influence" for police purposes, unless they have been arrested, a warrant for the procedure has been obtained or the patient has consented. But as Vox explained, Utah courts rejected that rationale ten years ago and, last year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that police need a warrant or consent for blood tests.

Wubbels refused to allow Payne invade the patient's body because the circumstances surrounding the patient did not permit it.

"Somebody help me!" Wubbels cried as Payne pushed her against a wall and handcuffed her. At one point, Wubbels consults with a supervisor on speakerphone.

Wubbels isn't filing a lawsuit for now and said she accepted the chief's apology.

"Help me! Stop! You're assaulting me", Wubbels yelled. "Stop! I did nothing wrong!" while being handcuffed. The driver died in the incident. He said his boss told him to arrest Wubbels if she kept interfering.

Wubbels said she was detained by officers in the vehicle for about 20 minutes before being released.

Wubbels said she chose to release the footage of the altercation because she felt the police department was not serious about changing their policies while working in a health care setting.

Judd said the department is working to investigate what went wrong and is seeking to fix the "unfortunate rift" it has caused.

The officers' body cameras showed an officer arguing with nurse Alex Wubbels over the matter.

Alarming footage has emerged showing the moment a nurse is aggressively arrested because she was following hospital procedure.

While she was calling management, the officer became impatient. "We have worked with our law enforcement partners on this issue to ensure an appropriate process for moving forward".
