UT: Cop caught on video assaulting nurse is fired

Source: New York Daily News

“A Utah police officer who was caught on video dragging a nurse out of the hospital after she refused to let him draw blood has been fired. Salt Lake City Police Det. Jeff Payne was given the boot after the department found he had violated its policies when arresting nurse Alex Wubbels on July 26, a police spokesman said. … The two initially engaged in a heated argument after Wubbels told Payne he either needed a warrant or the patient’s consent to draw blood. Lt. James Tracy, Payne’s supervisor, was demoted. He was at the scene and told Wubbels that she should’ve let Payne draw blood. The nurse was released and never charged.” (10/10/17)
