Posted November 30, 2012
Selma, N.C. — A Selma police supervisor has been demoted after he was accused of handcuffing an emergency room nurse at Johnston Medical Center in Smithfield.
Police Chief Charles Bowman said Friday that, effective Monday, officer Travis Abbott will be reassigned as a patrolman for the police force.
Abbott, who has been with the police department since 2009, was accused of handcuffing the nurse after she refused to draw blood from a suspected drunken driver.
