>> You're assaulting me, stop.>> University of Utah Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels->> It's crazy.>> Says she was just trying to do her job.>> Please sir, you're hurting me.>> Then walk.>> But doing her job on July 26th ended with her arrest.>> What is going on?
>> I just feel betrayed. I feel angry, I feel a lot of things.>> If things still keep going the way they are going I'm arresting her.>> It all started after she received a patient from a car crash. The patient was comatose and detective Jeff Pane wanted a blood sample.
But citing hospital policy on sharing blood samples for alcohol and drug tests, Wubbles denied the request.>> I'm just trying to do what I'm supposed to do, that's all.>> She even got her supervisor on the phone.>> Yeah, but sir, you're making a huge mistake right now.
>> That's when things escalated.>> We're done, we're done. You're under arrest. We're going. We're done.>> Sir, I have-
The only job I have as a nurse is to keep my patients safe.>> Wubbels reportedly told the officer he had neither a warrant nor the patient's consent.
>> Blood if your blood. That's your property. And when a patient comes in in a critical state, that blood is extremely important. So I don't take it lightly.>> Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown says action has been taken to ensure it never happens again.>> To date, we have suspended the officer from the blood draw program.
We have already replaced our blood draw policy with a new policy. All remaining officers on the blood draw program have reviewed and are operating under this new policy and procedure. The hospital says it supports Wubbles for focusing, quote, first and foremost, on the care and well-being of her patient.
>> I'm just trying to do what I'm supposed to do, that's it.
