Violent Body Cam Footage Shows Nurse Being Arrested For Doing Her Job

We all rely on the emergency services to help and protect us. However, it would appear that they cannot protect themselves from each other as this shocking footage shows.

The appalling 19 minute clip shows the moment a head nurse is violently arrested by a Utah police officer. The footage, released by nurse Alex Wubbels and her attorney, will make your jaw drop, especially when you learn why it happened...

The incident, which occurred in July this year, shows the head nurse being roughly arrested by a police officer as she screams for help. Her crime? Doing her job. The footage has now been released in an attempt to make the police reconsider the way they teach hospital staff, who have to comply to rules which don't allow them to always work in unison with the police.

The Salt Lake City police officer, Jeff Payne, entered Wubbel's hospital in order to take a blood sample from a badly injured patient. But, Wubbel's wasn't comfortable with him taking the sample for several reasons. One, the patient wasn't under any arrest. Two, Payne didn't have any warrant and, three, he also didn't have the unconscious patient's consent.

Wubbel's calmly explained to Payne, a trained police phlebotomist, why he couldn't take the patients blood, but he didn't want to take no for an answer. Payne, who wanted the patients blood in order to protect him, became instantly frustrated at being denied access and decided to take drastic measures...
