A Selma police officer has been suspended with pay after being accused of handcuffing a nursing supervisor at a Johnston County hospital over the weekend.

Selma police investigators said Wednesday that officer Travis Abbott took a suspected drunken driver to the Johnston Medical Center emergency room in Smithfield around 1:30 a.m. Saturday to have blood drawn.

According to a 911 call, Abbott handcuffed the nurse when she refused to draw blood because Abbott didn't have a court order.
