News: C&J represents nurse who was assaulted after abiding by hospital policy against allowing police blood draw on an unconscious accident victim

Alex Wubbels, was assaulted and arrested after explaining to police that she couldn't draw a blood sample from an unconscious person at University Hospital. A Salt Lake City police detective asked for a blood sample. After explaining to the detective that the police needed a warrant, consent from the unconscious patient, or that the patient needed to be under arrest before the blood sample could be drawn, the officer grabbed the nurse, twisted her arm back, dragged her outside, and left her handcuffed in a hot patrol car.

Attorney Karra Porter presented officer bodycam footage today at a press conference disclosing the assault and wrongful arrest.  Wubbels’ No. 1 concern is to prevent a recurrence of what happened to her, and to help others who might find themselves in a similar situation.  Someone with less training or understanding may have allowed the patient's confidentiality and safety to be put at risk.  If you or someone you know has been involved in an unlawful assault, contact the experienced attorneys at Christensen & Jensen for advice on your civil rights.

(Update 9/4/2017) : Since we first published this news update, the video of Nurse Alex's arrest has gone viral and the story has been picked up by many national media outlets.
