The footage then shows Weinman backing away from the officer, before he tosses her to the ground by her hair.
A Pennsylvania woman's visit to the New Jersey Shore on Memorial Day weekend ended in handcuffs after an encounter with police turned violent. All they asked for was an identification. Then, we see what looks like punches to the side of Weinman's head.
"Get off of me".
"I asked them don't they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach, saying to that there's so much more serious stuff going on... the cop said, "I was gonna let you go but now I'll write you up" and he asked my name".
The mother-of-one took to Facebook in a now-deleted post to give her side of the story. The officer goes after Weinman, who backed away from him.
"It's not open", Weinman says.
The second video begins with Weinman telling the officer it's not illegal to carry a closed container of alcohol.
Police soon made the determination to arrest Weinman.
"You're about to get dropped", the officer warns.
Weinman's lawyer, Stephen Dicht, said the videos support his prior statements about the arrest.
Body found near United States town ravaged by flash flooding
Hermond is the only person who has been reported missing, and there have been no other reports of fatalities or serious injuries. Flood waters from the Tiber Creek washed away almost 25 feet of roadway on Sunday, according to WTOP News.
Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto defended the officers' actions. What are you doing?
Weinman yells that she can't breathe and that she's being choked while she continues to struggle.
"She tried kicking at us, so I slammed her on the ground", the officer later tells his supervisor, after the woman has been tackled, handcuffed and shoved into the back of a police vehicle.
Police arrested 20-year-old Emily Weinman on Saturday and charged her 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 have been placed on administrative duty while Wildwood and county prosecutors investigate the incident, reported The New York Post. The department says the delay in releasing the body camera footage was the result of the time it took to hide the identities of juveniles and other citizens in the video. He adds the physical confrontation shown this time around is worse than what was taken by the bystander.
Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said on Tuesday that the officer "did what he had to do", according to the newspaper.
"At one point, he says, 'You're causing a scene.' I think he caused the scene, not her", Dicht said.
"This young lady attacked our officer", Troiano said.
"That's it", the cop says before punching her in the head several times. Cell phone video on social media captured an officer striking her during the course of the arrest.
