Quoted Excerpts
'I stood my ground'
Wubbels, the charge nurse in the burn unit, presented the officers with a printout of the hospital's policy for drawing blood and said their request did not meet the criteria. Hospital policy specified that before obtaining a blood sample, police needed a judge's order or the patient's consent, or the patient needed to be under arrest.
Payne handcuffed Wubbels and placed her in a police car, where she sat for about 20 minutes, according to CNN affiliate KSL. She was later released without charge. Payne and another officer have been placed on administrative leave pending the results of an investigation.
How did the university police and security respond? "By just standing there, looking at their phones," she said, "telling me that they couldn't protect me."
