Arrest of University Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels

Alex Wubbels said she couldn't believe what was happening.
"This is crazy. This is crazy. Why is he so angry?" she is heard on body camera video, nearly in tears, as she is being arrested by Salt Lake police detective Jeff Payne.
Wubbels was working her shift as a charge nurse, or a liaison between patients and doctors and hospital managers, at University Hospital's Burn Unit when she was handcuffed in the middle of her work area, pulled outside and put into a police patrol car for about 20 minutes.
She was arrested after refusing to give Payne vials of blood that he needed for an investigation because she said he did not have a warrant or meet any of the mandatory criteria needed for taking blood.
