Nurse Refuses to Break Law for Cop. Cop Brutally Arrests Nurse. The Internet is Still on Fire.

Posted on September 2, 2017 by Claire Bernish

Whipping like wildfire across the internet is arguably one of the more shocking incidents of brute force displayed by law enforcement in the United States — indeed, a rare characterization, given American policing’s interminable list of killings, beatings, corruption, lies, and general misbehavior — because, this time, the subject of a bully cop’s strong-arm tactics was a nurse.
A nurse, just doing her job.
The nurse, Alex Wubbels, doing her job in Salt Lake City’s University Hospital, tried to protect an unconscious patient from having their blood drawn without their ability to consent or refuse, by the order of Salt Lake City Police Detective Jeff Payne — whose demands unequivocally violated her employer’s strict policy against drawing blood from unconscious patients without warrant, prior consent, or unless the patient is under arrest — which would have supplanted said rule.
“I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do,” Wubbels told the detective on the July 26th video, released late Thursday by the Salt Lake Tribune.
As Payne’s body camera records their rapidly escalating encounter, Wubbels can be seen holding papers and a cell phone, over which it becomes clear a man named “Brad” has been listening over speakerphone — as he, too, tries to reason with the brash detective, explaining the orders for forcible blood draw must come from proper channels.
Unamused, Payne persists — even as Wubbels grows visibly nervous and unsure how to handle the irate detective.
“This is something that you guys agreed to with this hospital,” Wubbels tells Payne. “I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do. That’s all.”
“So I take it, without those in place, I’m not going to get blood,” he retorts. “Am I fair to surmise that?”
From the cell phone, Brad is heard telling the nurse, “Alex, you’re not representing the University Hospital.”
“I have no idea why he’s blaming me,” Wubbels, shaking, responds softly.

Sternly, Brad interjects, “Why are you blaming the messenger, sir?”
“She’s the one that has told me, no,” Payne replies.
“You’re making a huge mistake right now, because you’re threatening a nurse,” Brad admonishes Payne, apparently setting the officer’s temper aflame, as he abruptly lunges forward and grabs for Wubbels’ phone, snapping,
“No, we’re done, you’re under arrest.”
Understandably startled to be manhandled and intimidated by the detective who apparently didn’t understand the law or policy, Wubbels recoils reflexively from his clutches, turning from the impending detention in disbelief — but, Payne pursues her roughly, backing the nurse around equipment and into a uniformed officer’s arms, and then outside.
With body camera rolling, the nurse screams in agony at Payne’s clutch on her arm, now held fast behind her back, “Help! Help! Somebody help me! Stop! Stop! I did nothing wrong!” Hospital employees are seen congregating and attempting to quell the detective’s rage, telling him an administrator is en route to mediate.
“She can sit in my car while they’re coming,” Payne assures them.
“This is unnecessary, man,” someone asserts — to which the cop replies, “You’re right.”
Wubbels has obtained an attorney, saying she was illegally arrested and assaulted; although, no lawsuit or claim has yet been filed — but there are no shortage of odd facets to this interaction on video.
For one, the unconscious patient never was a suspect in any crime, and would be considered the victim in this case, as RT reports, since “[he] was driving a semi-truck on July 26 when a suspect, fleeing Logan, Utah police in a hot pursuit, swerved and slammed his pickup truck into [him], igniting an explosion that left [him] burned. The suspect, Marco Torres, died at the scene.”
Forced blood draws and testing have not been deemed acceptable by the U.S. Supreme Court, and certainly not in a situation where the subject isn’t the suspect.

Although remaining on active duty, Payne has been temporarily removed from the Salt Lake City Police blood-draw program, pending the conclusion of an internal investigation into the incident, according to Sergeant Brandon Shearer.
Should Payne go unpunished for the shocking, wrongful arrest, a grim portent would exist both for workers going about their duties, as well as the innocent public leery of having law enforcement attempt robbery of their blood under conditions where such an act would never be allowed.
Wubbels, who is still coming to terms with the incident, has one warningfor the public:
“If this could happen to me it could happen to anyone.”

Salt Lake City police say an officer seen on video dragging a screaming nurse from a hospital and handcuffing her will be put on paid administrative leave after prosecutors called for a criminal investigation.
Police Chief Mike Brown said in a statement Friday that his department will comply with the investigation into Detective Jeff Payne. He arrested nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious victim, in line with hospital policy.
Salt Lake County's Unified Police Department will run the criminal probe into Payne's actions on July 26, which got widespread attention after Wubbels and her lawyers released the dramatic video Thursday.
Brown and the mayor of Salt Lake City have apologized for the incident and changed their policies to mirror hospital protocols.

Police in the eastern Idaho town of Rigby said Friday that William Gray was severely injured in a Utah crash in July when the semi-truck he was driving for work was hit by another car.
Rigby police said in a statement they didn't know until Thursday that the nurse was arrested after refusing to allow blood to be drawn from Gray.
The department thanked the nurse, Alex Wubbels, and hospital "for standing firm" and protecting the Gray's rights.
It says he is still hospitalized.
3:45 p.m.
A Utah prosecutor says he's asked for a criminal investigation into a police officer who dragged a nurse from a hospital and arrested her for refusing to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious patient.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said Friday that he was concerned when he saw police body-camera footage of the officer arresting nurse Alex Wubbels in July.
Gill says he called Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown to request the investigation and that the chief agreed.
Gill says Brown will choose an outside police agency to investigate. He declined to say what charges the officer could face.
Police did not immediately return telephone messages seeking comment or details about the criminal investigation.
2 p.m.
A Utah nurse says she was scared to death and trying to find anything to hold on to when a police officer dragged her from a hospital and handcuffed her for refusing to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious patient.
Alex Wubbels said in an interview Friday that the officer lost his temper on July 26 and "attacked me and assaulted me and dragged me out of my emergency department."
She says she was screaming and "just trying to hold on to anything that was keeping me safe because no one else was keeping me safe."
Wubbels says that before her arrest, the officer was agitated and angry as she explained that hospital policy prevented her from drawing the patient's blood without a warrant, the patient being under arrest or with their consent.
1:15 p.m.
A Utah hospital says it's proud of the way their nurse handled a confrontation with a police officer, who has been slammed by fellow nurses as violent.
The University of Utah Health hospital said in a statement Friday that Alex Wubbels followed procedures and protocols in the July 26 incident.
Wubbels was threatened with arrest by Salt Lake City police Detective Jeff Payne when she refused to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious burn center patient.
National Nurses United called it a disgraceful and outrageous act of violence for the officer to drag the screaming nurse out of the hospital in handcuffs.

She says they're taking the matter seriously and she believes positive change will come out of it.
Wubbels says the outpouring of support she's received since releasing dramatic video of the exchange was beyond what she could have imagined.
12:15 p.m.
The mayor of Salt Lake City says the arrest of a nurse who told a police officer she couldn't draw blood from an unconscious patient is completely unacceptable.
Mayor Jackie Biskupski says it's a troubling setback to efforts to train officers to de-escalate situations rather than use force.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert also weighed in Friday, a day after dramatic video surfaced of the exchange with nurse Alex Wubbels. He says in a tweet that the footage is disturbing and he trusts police will rectify the situation.
