Nurse Alex Wubbels gets $500000 over arrest while on duty

Nurse Alex Wubbels gets $500000 over arrest while on duty”

A USA nurse who was held for refusing to allow police take a blood sample from an unconscious patient has accepted $500,000 (£376,500) in compensation. "And I think this is a small step we can provide to enable that potential success if we are going to start asking the police departments to have body cameras", Wubbels said outside the Salt Lake City Police Department while standing next to her attorney, Karra Porter, reported the Deseret News.

Wubbels was not charged in the incident, while Payne was later fired from the police force in October, a decision that he is now challenging in court.

Wubbels asked a U of U police officer to protect her because Payne was threatening her with arrest, and the U of U officer declined, saying if she interfered with Payne's investigation, she would be obstructing justice.

Ms Wubbel was following hospital policy when she told Mr Payne he needed a warrant or the consent of the patient to draw blood after a July 26 auto crash. Jeff Payne that he needed a warrant if the patient was not a suspect in a crime.

She plans to use part of the money to fund legal help for others trying to get similar body-camera video.

He eventually dragged Ms Wubbels outside and handcuffed her as she screamed that she had done nothing wrong.

The University of Utah later said it had introduced a new policy on blood samples barring officers from coming to the hospital in person to seek them. An investigation by the Salt Lake City Police Department found that Wubbels was correct in asserting to Det.

Chief Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was "deeply troubled" by Mr Payne's conduct, which he said brought "significant disrepute" on the department.

The patient was later identified as a reserve police officer from Idaho, who was severely injured in a trucking accident.

Lieutenant James Tracy, a police supervisor who ordered the arrest of the nurse, was demoted to officer and also is appealing.
