REVEALED: Cop who bullied Utah nurse has history of ‘unwanted physical contact’ with female officer
The cop who arrested Utah nurse Alex Wubbels after she refused to follow his orders and draw a blood sample from an unconscious man has also sexually harassed another police department employee, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
Salt Lake City Police Detective Jeff Payne, who is currently being investigated by the FBI for his arrest of Alex Wubbels on July 26, made “unwanted physical contact” with a female officer multiple times, according to the police chief in a May 2013 letter obtained by the Salt Lake Tribune.
In addition, Payne also sent a “disparaging email” that was “profane in its content” to his female colleague — using official department accounts.
“Your harassing behavior was severe and persistent and created a hostile, intimidating work environment for this employee, significantly interfering with her ability to work,” the chief wrote.
Despite the incidents, Payne only received written reprimand that warned any additional harassment could result in his dismissal.
