Ex-SLC PD detective appeals firing over arrest of nurse

Officer who assaulted Salt Lake City nurse finally canned

Officer who assaulted Salt Lake City nurse finally canned

The veteran Utah cop who drew national outrage after body cam footage showed him manhandling and violently arresting a hospital nurse was sacked and his supervisor was demoted following an internal review by the Salt Lake City Police Department.

Aimee McLean is president of the Utah Nurses Association.

After the video appeared Payne was sacked from his part-time paramedic gig after he was caught on camera saying he'd take transient patients to the University of Utah hospital where Wubbels worked and transport "good patients" elsewhere. The incident has prompted outrage and a top-down review of hospital and police policies when it comes to blood draws.

"You demonstrated extremely poor professional judgment (especially for an officer with 27 years of experience), which calls into question your ability to effectively serve the public and the department", Brown wrote. In video footage, the nurse is seen sobbing and screaming for help.

Tracy made an impulsive decision in ordering Payne to arrest Wubbels without first taking time to understand the facts of the situation and the law, Brown wrote in his disciplinary letter.

Brown and Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski apologized to Wubbles, saying she never should have been arrested for doing her job.

On July 26, Payne was sent to University Hospital to collect blood from a man injured in a crash that killed the driver who caused it. Their lawyers say they would appeal the decision because "the chief reacted to a lot of public pressure and scrutiny in making a decision that doesn't fit the conduct".

You may recall that we told you about the incident in September after nurse Alex Wubbels and her attorney released damning video showing the incident during an August 31 press conference.

Brown also criticized Tracy and said his lack of judgment was "unacceptable" and "as a result, I no longer believe that you can retain a leadership position in the Department". They plan to take legal action.

"Substantial damage has been done to the Department's relationship with nurses, the Hospital and, equally important, the public we serve", Brown said.
