A Salt Lake City detective is in huge trouble when he man-handled and arrested a nurse when she refused to give him an unlawful blood sample from an innocent man. This is nuts!
Most law enforcement is good, and it is idiots like Salt Lake City Police Detective Jeff Payne that make it harder for good cops to do their job.
This moron detective should be fired immediately and lose all benefits. He needs to spend some time behind bars. Lieutenant James Tracy ordered Payne to make the unlawful arrest. He too needs to be fired.
You will not believe this video, and it gets worse! He is later caught threatening the hospital in his moonlighting role as an EMT. Payne declares “I’ll bring them all the transients and take good patients elsewhere.”
Payne was in a hospital emergency room demanding that the nurse draw blood from a man who is unconscious. The man was not charged nor involved in a crime. In fact, he was a reserve officer from Idaho who was in a head on accident caused by a man that the SLC police were chasing.
Nurse Alex Wubbels is on the phone with one of her superiors at the hospital who directs her to print out a one-page documents which outlines the circumstances under which she can draw blood from a patient and give it to police. Either the patient is conscious and can consent to the procedure, or the police can provide a warrant for the blood or, lastly, if the patient is under arrest police are allowed to get a sample.
In this case, the man was unconscious, not under arrest, and police had no warrant. Nurse Wubbels calmly tells the officers “I’m just trying to do what I’m supposed to do.” Instead of backing off, Det. Payne arrests the Nurse and handcuffs her.
Lieutenant James Tracy orders Payne to make an arrest. Then Detective Jeff Payne goes nuts, man-handles and pushes her outside, and arrests her as she screams.
Prosecutors have called for a criminal investigation. He needs to go to jail. He tried to force an obviously good nurse to break ethics rules, hospital policy, and the United States Constitution.
Police Chief Mike Brown said in a statement Friday that his department will comply with the investigation into Detective Jeff Payne. Salt Lake County’s Unified Police Department will run the criminal probe into Payne’s actions.
Brown and the mayor of Salt Lake City have apologized for the incident and changed their policies to mirror hospital protocols.
The Rigby, Idaho police department is thanking the Utah nurse for stopping the moron from obtaining the blood sample and stomping on his Constitutional rights. The department thanked nurse Wubbels, and the hospital “for standing firm” and protecting Gray’s rights. Just one year ago the Supreme Court ruled that police must get a warrant or consent in order to draw a person’s blood.
A Utah prosecutor says he’s asked for a criminal investigation into a police officer who dragged a nurse from a hospital and arrested her for refusing to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious patient.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said Friday that he was concerned when he saw police body-camera footage of the officer arresting nurse Alex Wubbels in July.
Gill says he called Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown to request the investigation and that the chief agreed.
Gill says Brown will choose an outside police agency to investigate. He declined to say what charges the officer could face.
(Detective Jeff Payne even looks like a schmuck! Cut that hair you hippy wannabe, you are in a profession:)
This infuriates me. I support the blue!
Our law enforcement officers are some of our nations finest, risking their lives to keep law and order. Then this blockhead goes and does something that hurts all good law enforcement. This cretin gives fodder to those blaming innocent law enforcement for being the authoritarian bad guys.
Detective Jeff Payne needs to be fired, lose his benefits, and serve some jail time. The damage he did is not just relegated to the nurse that he physically abused. He has embarrassed the Salt Lake City PD. He has embarrassed the state of Utah. Detective Payne has done severe damage to the reputation of the law enforcement profession.
