A Utah Cop Manhandles and Arrests a Nurse Because She Didn’t Let Him Break the Law

September 1, 2017

(Vox) – A Utah police officer earlier this year manhandled and arrested a nurse because she wouldn’t let him break the law. The chain of events was caught on body camera video at the University of Utah Hospital. After consulting with hospital staff, nurse Alex Wubbels tells Salt Lake City detective Jeff Payne that he is not allowed legally or under hospital policy to draw blood from an unconscious patient, because — by Payne’s own admission — he didn’t have a warrant (or probable cause) or consent, and the patient wasn’t under arrest.
