Utah policeman fired for arrest of nurse who was doing her job

Salt Lake County DA requests review from FBI regarding officer involved shooting	 	 	 			Patrick Harmon

The Associated Press reported that the city's police chief, Mike Brown, made a decision to fire the officer, Detective Payne, on Tuesday after an investigation into the incident was completed.

Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was "deeply troubled" by Payne's conduct, which he described as "inappropriate, unreasonable, unwarranted, discourteous, disrespectful" and said brought "significant disrepute" on the department.

In the police video of the incident, Detective Jeff Payne handcuffed Wubbels and placed her in a police vehicle when she refused to allow officers to obtain a blood sample from a crash victim at the hospital without a warrant.

Skordas said Payne would still be employed if the body camera footage hadn't generated so much attention and blown the events out of proportion.

He has lost his job and James Tracy, his watch commander, was demoted two ranks from lieutenant to officer. A lawyer for Tracy did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He says Fox has the "training, judgment and ability to make split-second decisions in dynamic situations".

"Your lack of judgment and leadership in this matter is unacceptable", Brown wrote to Tracy. It would have been a he-said, she-said or multiple he-saids against a she-said.

Their boss said their actions had undermined public trust. Porter said she and her client will be meeting with city officials as well as University of Utah police over the next couple of weeks.

The video shows Mr. Payne accusing the nurse of interfering with a criminal case.

The only answers out there at the moment is that the Sonic movie will blend live action acting and CGI animation. The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has just entered pre-production, and has yet to receive an official release date.

One of the ways that they reportedly try to do this is by training officers to slow down so that they have time to rethink their approach. "Without that, my story never would have had the impact that it had", she said.

According to the Associated Press, Nurse Wubbels does plan to meet with the city to discuss next steps which could include a settlement.

Ms Wubbels, who was duty nurse that day, declined to tell Officer Payne where the patient was or let him draw blood.

Skordas believes Brown was under heavy public pressure to take serious action because of the tremendous attention the case has received.

In this case, the patient wasn't suspected of wrongdoing William Gray, 43, a commercial truck driver and an off-duty reserve Idaho police officer, was driving a semitrailer when he was hit by a man fleeing police in a pickup truck.

But Mr Payne did not present a warrant to collect the blood sample, as required by hospital policy, and state and federal law.

Nurse Alex Wubbels told the Tribune that she's just glad the encounter was captured on bodycam footage and emphasized the need for police bodycams throughout Utah because they aid in officer accountability. Wubbels was later freed from the handcuffs and has not been charged.
