A Utah police officer was fired Tuesday after being seen on video roughly handcuffing a nurse because she refused to allow a blood draw in an incident that became a flashpoint in the national conversation about use of force.
Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown made the decision to fire Detective Jeff Payne after an internal investigation found he violated department policies when he arrested nurse Alex Wubbels and dragged her screaming from the hospital, department spokesman Sgt. Brandon Shearer said.
Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was “deeply troubled” by Payne’s conduct, which he described as “inappropriate, unreasonable, unwarranted, discourteous, disrespectful” and said brought “significant disrepute” on the department.
“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.
Attorney Greg Skordas, who represents Payne, said his client plans to appeal a firing he considers unfair and over the top. Skordas said Payne would still be employed if the body camera footage hadn’t generated so much attention and blown the events out of proportion.
Payne’s supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, was demoted

EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. – A man arrested for allegedly threatening people with a hatchet on a Colorado trail may reportedly be linked to other crimes, including one in Indiana involving two murdered Delphi teens.
Police in Woodland Park say the suspect, 31-year-old Daniel Nations, was arrested while driving a vehicle with expired Indiana license plates Monday, according to a document.
FOX59 spoke with authorities in Colorado who said Nations was arrested near the same trail in Colorado where a bicyclist was shot to death two weeks ago.
“When we were made aware of some tips that involved a double homicide in Indiana we did contact law enforcement out there, it is their case, and we will not be speaking to it, because we do not know their case,” Jacque Kirby with the El Paso County Colorado Sheriff’s Office told us.
No arrests have been made yet in that murder and authorities have not said whether they think Nations might be involved.
Following Nations’ arrest, authorities reportedly reached out to Indiana State Police after receiving a tip from a local news outlet.
Indiana State Police released the following statement:
“We are aware of the arrest of the person in Colorado and are investigating to see if
A Queens woman was charged with manslaughter for her alleged involvement in the death of a 31-year-old woman in July. The victim, Latesha Bynum, had received a “black market” butt injection and died in the hospital 12 days later after suffering dizziness and chest pains.
Bynum had gone to an appointment for the butt enhancement on July 15th. The “doctor” apparently used a Dunkin’ Donuts nearby as a “waiting room,” and the “nurse,” Allison Spence, met her there and took her to a Gramercy Park apartment for the procedure.
After the injection, Bynum went home but fell ill in the evening. Her brother said, “She went to the hospital and couldn’t breathe, and whatever was in her went to her head. She was brain dead and she had zero chance to basically come back from it.” Bynum died on July 27th.
A lawyer for Bynum’s family claimed to WCBS 2 that the alleged doctor “had a pattern of injecting unsuspecting women with ‘silicone poison into his patients’ buttocks and/or thighs.”
Spence, 44, was charged with manslaughter and “unauthorized practice of a profession” for the injection.
