Utah nurse, Alex Wubble, has reached a settlement worth half a million dollars after being forcibly arrested for refusing to let an officer draw blood from an unconscious patient. The incident was videotaped and highly publicized.

Wubbles said at a news conference that "I am obviously very grateful, would be the best word for it. Again, this landed in my lap. This is not something I sought out. I didn't seek out the last 4 months."

On July 26 Detective Jeff Payne handcuffed Wubbels and put her in a police car after she had refused to allow police to obtain a blood sample from a crash victim. She was doing what the law required her to do, and did not allow the police to take blood from the unconscious victim without a warrant. Payne, as a response, dragged her to a police car.

The officer was later fired, and his watch commander was demoted for violating policies.
