Jeff Payne, the Salt Lake City Police detective fired this week after cuffing and arresting a nurse who refused to break with protocol and draw blood from an unconscious patient, will appeal his termination.
A Salt Lake City Police spokesman told the AP that police chief Mike Brown chose to fire the officer on Tuesday after an investigation into the incident.
After the video appeared Payne was sacked from his part-time paramedic gig after he was caught on camera saying he'd take transient patients to the University of Utah hospital where Wubbels worked and transport "good patients" elsewhere.
Sadio Mane: Out for up to six weeks with injury
Sportsmail looks at three different ways that Klopp's Liverpool could line up without their key player. The Reds forward suffered a hamstring injury while away on worldwide duty this week.
The incident at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah, in July was captured on film by the hospital and a police body camera.
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. He's also shown on video continuing to push for the blood draw as she sat cuffed in a police vehicle. This happened after Wubbels calmly explained the criteria that must be met before she could draw the blood and release it.
"I think the biggest thing it lays out is that when they come to the hospital to do something, they will announce their presence", she says. In video footage, the nurse is seen sobbing and screaming for help.

"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.
You may recall that we told you about the incident in September after nurse Alex Wubbels and her attorney released damning video showing the incident during an August 31 press conference.
In his letter to Tracy this week, also obtained by the Deseret News, the police chief condemned the supervisor's "unacceptable" lack of "judgement and leadership".
