A Salt Lake City Police spokesman said Chief Mike Brown made the decision Tuesday following an investigation into Detective Jeff Payne, who made the arrest that became a flashpoint in the ongoing national conversation about police use of force.

Attorneys for Payne and Tracy told local media that they plan to appeal the decision.

Alex Wubbels and her lawyer, Karra Porter say they both expected Jeff Payne would be fired, but they want to see further action by the Salt Lake City Police Department.

Last month, an internal investigation found Payne and his watch commander Lt. James Tracey violated policies when they arrested the nurse.

Payne's attorney Greg Skordas said, the detective officer has served the police department well for around three decades. The video shows Wubbels screaming for him to nstop as he forced her out the door toward a police auto.

As per the National Family Health Survey, 46 per cent of women between the ages of 18-29 years were married before the age of 18. It said that before arriving at a conclusion, these aspects have been deliberated upon by Parliament .

The incident was sparked by the case of an off duty Idaho reserve police officer whose vehicle was struck by another motorist fleeing the police in a pickup truck.

Payne nevertheless insisted on the blood draw, saying the evidence would protect the man.

She said the situation escalated as she tried to explain why she wouldn't allow the patient's blood to be drawn unless he was under arrest or if there was a police warrant.

The officer then violently handcuffed the nurse and dragged her outside the hospital as she screams: 'I've done nothing wrong!' His lawyer, Ed Brass, couldn't immediately be reached.

"I think I was able to keep my cool pretty well, because I knew I was in a tough situation", she said, noting that she continued to refer to the officer as "sir" even as he dragged her out of the hospital. Wubbels was later freed from the handcuffs and has not been charged.

"Your lack of judgment and leadership in this matter is unacceptable, and as a result, I no longer believe that you can retain a leadership position in the department", Brown said.

The officers have five business days to appeal the decisions by the chief.

"The trust problem has not been resolved by these actions", Porter said Tuesday evening.

The family of black man fatally shot after he ran from police in Utah says body-camera footage of the shooting shows that the officer should lose his job.

The case shows the vital importance of officers wearing body cameras and making those videos available to the public, Porter said. "Alex feels very strongly that her story would have never been told if it weren't for the body camera footage".

Raja also testified last week that VX was detected on Kim Jong Nam's face, eyes, clothing, and in his blood and urine samples. Raja's finding of VX on the women's clothing and Huong's fingernails was the first evidence linking VX to the two suspects.

Payne and Tracy were placed on leave pending the investigation, and Payne was sacked from his part-time job as an ambulance driver.
