Woman Physically Assaulted by Police Officer on the Beach

The newly-released 9-minute clip begins with cops administering a breathalyzer to Weinman, which she appears to pass.

Wildwood police asked anyone who was present and has video of the altercation to come forward to help their internal affairs investigation, in which Cape May County officers will also be assisting. "I think we could have done a better job at trying to explain to her, but it didn't appear Ms. Weinman wanted to hear what we had to say". Now that it's been released we're getting a different view of the viral incident from Memorial Day Weekend. "At that moment, he told me that if I did not give it to him, he would stop me", she added. She refused to give it to them.

"Don't f-ing touch me, what is wrong with you?"

"Emily Weinman is charged by the police department with serious offenses that could result in exposure to a prison term of 5-10 years".

Weinman's lawyer, Stephen Dicht, said the videos support his prior statements about the arrest. "Once the officer says "you're under arrest", he has to continue with that arrest". At that point, the video becomes jumbled and Weinman is on the sand. "I didn't do anything wrong", as she kicks her legs at the officers. Weinman starts yelling. The officer grabs hold of her by her hair. In the first, the officer indicates he was going to have her pour out the alcohol without issuing any violation.

Police on Wednesday said the incident could have gone another direction. "Look I don't care who you are and what you are, the worst people [to try to subdue] are women".

She says: "I'm not resisting". She's facing two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and other charges, according to Wildwood police.

The video shows Emily Weinman, 20, of Philadelphia, arguing with the officers about the alcohol containers and then walking away from them after refusing to provide her last name. The video doesn't show what led to the confrontation.

On Tuesday, Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano called Weinman the aggressor. She kicked him and then I hit her a couple times.

None of the officers have a history of using excessive force, Regalbuto said.

"Thats when he headlocked me by his arm around my neck, punched on me in my head and then he headlocked me again but this time choking me, I was gasping for air", she said.

According to NBC Philadelphia, Weinman is now on probation for a previous simple assault in the City of Brotherly Love.
