Wildwood Police Release Bodycam of Beach Arrest

During the ordeal, Weinman continues yelling expletives and complains that the officer is pulling her hair and choking her.

Wildwood police released the video on Wednesday, days after the citizen-shot video showing the arrest of 20-year-old Emily Weinman went viral.

In a Monday Facebook post, which has since been taken down, Weinman admitted to possessing alcohol, but that she hadn't been drinking.

"They asked her to give a breathalyzer; she did it not once, but twice", Dicht said.

Weinman takes a breathalyser test but when an officer asks for her surname she refuses, telling him: "You're mad because you thought we were drinking. your breathalyser came up negative".

Weinman was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction and minor in possession of alcohol.

The officers involved in Weinman's arrest have been reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of a "full and thorough" investigation, police said.

You see her collide with the officer-knocking off the body camera-according to investigators.

"Look I don't care who you are and what you are, the worst people (to try to subdue) are women", he said.

"I see him taking two shots at her and right away you go, 'Oh my god, '" said Troiano.

Wildwood police have released body camera footage of the controversial arrest on the beach over Memorial Day weekend. The alcohol belonged to her aunt, Weinman explained sternly but calmly, and she was on her way back.

The first video begins as the officer hands Weinman a Breathalyzer.

"I'm not choking her", the officer says.

"She wouldn't give me her last name", the officer said.

The officer asked Weinman for her name, which she refused to give, according to the post. "I was partly wrong in a way but I was scared".

"It's just a shame that all she had to do was comply", Troiano said.

"Wildwood's mayor Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. tells FOX 29 by phone", I do not think that the officer tried to hit her in the head.

Now that seen the footage has been released, the attorney for Emily Weinman says it's clear the officers used excessive force, while the mayor of Wildwood believes his officers acted appropriately in what became an intense situation. "I tried grabbing her". "I tripped and fell and the cop tackled me to the ground and smashed my head into the sand", she wrote.

"You have a young lady who was out of control".
