Cop Who Arrested Nurse For Not Drawing Patient’s Blood Is Fired

In July of 2017, Detective Jeff Payne arrested nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to draw a patient’s blood without a warrant. Wubbels explained to the officer that it is against hospital policy to draw blood without a warrant or consent from the patient. But Detective Payne claimed she was interfering with his case and dragged Alex out of the hospital and handcuffed her as she screamed.

According to reports, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown made the decision to fire Payne, saying he violated department policies.

Payne was also fired from his part-time job as a paramedic.
