The Selma, North Carolina, police department has suspended officer Travis Abbot with pay while they investigate a claim that he handcuffed a nursing supervisor at a local hospital. Abbot reportedly brought a DWI suspect to the emergency room and became angry when the nurse refused to draw blood from the suspect without a court order. Abbot released the nurse only after Johnston County sheriff's deputies intervened. The DWI suspect was later taken to the county magistrate, who ordered him released for lack of probable cause.
