Officer Who Arrested Utah Nurse Placed On Administrative Leave

Video: Utah nurse arrested for not letting policeman draw blood from unconscious car crash victim

Statements from the University of Utah hospital administration and Salt Lake City mayor and police chief can be found here and here.

Wubbels refused the request, citing a hospital policy which does not allow blood to be taken from an unconscious patient unless the patient is under arrest, unless the patient gives consent or unless there is a warrant from a judge. "I'm just trying to do what I'm supposed to do", she says. Wubbels said her first duty was to her patients.

"She's the one that has told me no", Payne says, when a hospital administrator Wubbel is consulting with on the phone tells him he's making a "big mistake" by threatening Wubbel with arrest. "Stop! Stop! I've done nothing wrong!" Why is this happening? Ms. Wubbels says during the exchange. "Why is he so angry?"

Wubbles was later released and no charges were put on her but during a press conference on Thursday (31 August), she released the video footage of the incident as evidence of how health care workers are being bullied and harassed by the authorities. The department said the frustrated Payne had called his supervisor and that several people went back and forth about the time-sensitive blood draw for over an hour. Well, the Detective chose to her arrest her.

"I am sad at the rift this has caused between law enforcement and the nurses we work so closely with".

During the past month, the Yankees have been atop the wild-card pile but played as if they belonged at the bottom. Hicks' throw occurred just before the Red Sox scored their first run on a ground ball by Bogaerts.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Wubbels was not charged. He then proceeds to grab her, turn her around and drag her out while she continues screaming.

"What I saw is completely unacceptable to the values of my administration and of the values of the Salt Lake City Police Department", Biskupski said.

Nurse Alex Wubbels told the Deseret News that she couldn't believe what was happening.

New body camera video has been released of the controversial arrest of a nurse for not allowing police to draw blood from a patient.

"This is an ever evolving situation, and we will do what is necessary to fully investigate the issue, uphold the integrity of the Salt Lake City Police Department and strengthen the trust with our community", said Chief Mike Brown.
