Police body cameras captured video of the arrest of University of Utah Hospital nurse Alex Wubbels on July 26, 2017.  The video shows Wubbels -citing hospital policy- refusing to allow Salt Lake City Police to draw blood from a tractor trailer driver who was injured in a head-on collision.

The footage shows Wubbels screaming and crying as she is dragged outside, handcuffed and placed in a police car as several hospital employees follow along and try to mitigate the situation.
