‘This is crazy,’ sobs Utah hospital nurse as cop roughs her up, arrests her for doing her job

Washington Post wrote:
By all accounts, the head nurse at the University of Utah Hospital’s burn unit was professional and restrained when she told a Salt Lake City police detective he wasn’t allowed to draw blood from a badly injured patient.

The detective didn’t have a warrant, first off. And the patient wasn’t conscious, so he couldn’t give consent. Without that, the detective was barred from collecting blood samples — not just by hospital policy, but by basic constitutional law.

Still, Detective Jeff Payne insisted that he be let in to take the blood, saying the nurse would be arrested and charged if she refused.

Nurse Alex Wubbels politely stood her ground. She got her supervisor on the phone so Payne could hear the decision loud and clear. “Sir,” said the supervisor, “you’re making a huge mistake because you’re threatening a nurse.”

Payne snapped. He seized hold of the nurse, shoved her out of the building and cuffed her hands behind her back. A bewildered Wubbels screamed “help me” and “you’re assaulting me” as the detective forced her into an unmarked car and accused her of interfering with an investigation.


You have to see the video of her arrest:

I've seen that already. Cop was out of control. Period. End of story.

This is an interesting and appalling story. The mayor of Salt Lake and the Police Chief have both issued an apology to the nurse, the University and the citizens of Salt Lake (they can apologize because they are not representing the LDS Church).

What does the title of this thread have to do with that story?

Because it was a dispute about blood draws.

The officer was an actual phlebotomist. He was going to draw the blood. He was responding to a request by the Logan Police Department.
