Second Cop Suspended After Arresting the Nurse Who Refused to Draw Blood From Unconscious Patient

By now, chances are you have seen the shocking video of Utah Nurse Alex Wubbels being arrested and forcibly dragged into a police officer’s car outside of the hospital she worked at. Her crime? Following the law and refusing to let Detective Jeff Payne draw blood from her unconscious patient.

I know, horrible, right? How dare she follow the law! When she refused to let the Detective essentially steal blood from an unconscious man without a warrant, the Detective became enraged and overpowered her, arresting her on the spot and dragging her to his car as she screamed for help. Since the video of the arrest went viral, Wubbels has received an outpouring of support and the officers involved in the incident are being investigated.

Payne, the officer who arrested her, was already placed on paid leave (why paid??), but now, a second cop has also been disciplined.
