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

Nurse Alex Wubbels followed hospital policy and advice from her bosses when she told Salt Lake City police Detective Jeff Payne that he could not get the blood sample without a warrant or consent from the patient said her lawyer Karra Porter

A police detective was sacked Tuesday for his role in the arrest of a nurse at Salt Lake City-based University of Utah Hospital who was handcuffed and shoved into a squad auto as she was trying to protect an unconscious patient's legal rights, according to The Washington Post.

Payne's attorney, Greg Skordas, told the Tribune that his client is "devastated" by Brown's decision and plans to appeal it.

A supervisor of Payne, Lt. James Tracy, was demoted to officer after the investigation.

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.

Ed Brass, Tracy's attorney, said his client will also appeal.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney wants the FBI to investigate a police shooting that left a black man dead after he ran from police. He could be seen in multiple body camera videos grabbing Wubbels by the arms, handcuffing her and forcing her into an unmarked vehicle as she cried "you're assaulting me" and "this is insane". "Without that, my story never would have had the impact that it had", she said.

The statements made by Payne and Tracy during their Internal Affairs investigations were redacted from Brown's letters.

Police chief Mike Brown chose to terminate Payne's employment after reviewing information about the incident, records showed. "The Salt Lake City Police Department is probably one of the leading agencies in the country as far as how we train and deploy and use these tactics to deescalate and save lives", Chief Brown told a local TV station earlier in the year. "But I think the chief reacted to a lot of public pressure and scrutiny in making a decision that doesn't fit the conduct".

"In order to be thorough, and given the seriousness of the case and the considerable public interest in the matter, all issues must be completely examined to preserve the public's trust in the criminal justice system and ensure the right measures are taken in this case", Gill wrote. The hospital responded by barring law enforcement from patient-care areas and direct contact with nurses. "This is insane", she said as she was led away.

"I honestly struggle to understand how detective Payne doesn't think that his conduct warrants termination". "If detective Payne does not believe this is a fireable offense, then I'm glad detective Payne will not be out on the street in uniform tomorrow". As for Wubbels, she said Tuesday that she didn't "feel the emotional capacity to speak" about the letters from the police chief as she still struggles with what happened.

"The decision.is in keeping with the high level of accountability we owe the people of Salt Lake City", Mayor Jackie Biskupski said in a statement.

I'm really frustrated by the way this case has been processed.
