Wildwood police release body camera footage of controversial beach arrest

Police released body camera video footage showing the violent arrest of a Philadelphia woman accused of underage drinking in Wildwood, New Jersey, over the memorial day weekend.

One of the officers tells her: "You're about to get dropped".

"Alright, that's it. I'm done with you", the officer says in the video.

"The cop said, "I was gonna let you go but now I'll write you up" and he asked my name". When officers said they found alcohol, Weinman claimed it belonged to her aunt, and then called her. She insults the officers and tells them they're wasting their time.

Weinman's lawyer, Stephen Dicht, said after viewing the body cam videos, "I don't think it puts the police in a good light".

At this point Weiman says she "tripped and fell and the cop tackled me to the ground and smashed my head into the sand".

She's facing two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

In a Facebook post that was later taken down, Weinman says she was on the beach with her daughter, her daughter's father, and a friend when the incident occurred shortly after 4 p.m. Weinman screams that she's being choked and begins to flail her arms and legs before the officer announces "That's it" and begins striking her.

Wildwood's mayor says the incident was not a reflection of the Jersey Shore town. She wouldn't give me her last name, so I said, 'Hey, if you're not going to give me your information, you're going to be locked up'.

"Get off of me".

The footage then shows Weinman backing away from the officer, before he tosses her to the ground by her hair.

The videos show the woman and the two officers arguing about unopened cans of alcohol.

Authorities initially said Weinman kicked the officer in the genitals and ran off. Did she deserve to get hit?

The officers involved were identified as Class II patrolmen Thomas Cannon, John Hillman, and Robert Jordan. "Even NJ Governor Phil Murphy has said that the video was 'pretty darn disturbing, '" NJ Criminal Trial Attorney, Bob Stahl tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

The officers have been placed on administrative duty while Wildwood and county prosecutors investigate the incident, reported The New York Post.
