  • Weinman claims officers hit first while cops say it as Weinman who threw the first kick

Police have posted three body camera videos showing the encounter and violent arrest of a woman cited for underage drinking in Wildwood over the Memorial Day weekend.

The bodycam video shows a confrontation between officers and Emily Weinman, 20, after a breathalyser test was administered, which Weinman appears to pass. After a back and forth between Weinman and the officer, she refuses to give the officer her whole name.

One officer is heard to say, "You're about to get dropped", before the physical altercation occurs. "Don't cuff me!" Weinman says. The camera was reactivated during the struggle with the woman seen in the third video. "They're choking me. I can not breathe".

Beachgoers try to intervene as Weinman screams, "You're not allowed to hit me and choke me like that". "We didn't even drink alcohol", she tells the officer. She also shouts obscenities at the officers the entire time.

"I'm not choking", the officer says moments before punching her in front of a crowd of beachgoers.

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.

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

Under that article, the president would be voted on "for high treason or attacking the constitution" by all members of parliament. If the vote is in favour, the country's constitutional court then decides whether to impeach or not. "We need to keep cool".

Ms Weinman resisted arrest, claiming she hadn't done anything wrong. "But if I was on probation, maybe if I wouldn't want to give my identity up", Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said.

"It wasn't just that this officer chose to beat her up", he said. She chose to attack the officer, spit on the officer.

"I worked as a doorman, a bouncer", said Troiano, who told Philly.com that his father owned a nightclub. The officers have been reassigned to administrative duty. And now we have video from the point of view of the police.

Cell phone video went viral showing the woman being punched in the head twice by an officer as he tried to restrain her.

"The number of people who think she got what she deserved is appalling", Dicht said.

Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto said the camera footage switches on and off because Weinman "forcibly struck" the officer in the torso, affecting the camera.

A court date was set for June 6, though Dicht said it will probably be rescheduled for an unknown date.
