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

Police in Wildwood, New Jersey on Wednesday released bodycamera footage of the violent and controversial arrest of a 20-year-old woman suspected of underage drinking.

Authorities say the 20-year-old woman was combative during the arrest. "You're about to get dropped".

"Alright, that's it. I'm done with you", the officer says in the video. It was apparently reactivated as the two struggled in the sand.

Beachgoers try to intervene as Weinman screams, "You're not allowed to hit me and choke me like that". "She tried to tell us it was okay for her to possess alcohol and that doesn't make any sense". Her attorney says they will fight these charges.

The officer punches the women as she resists. "Upon the conclusion of the investigation in the coming days, and only after final review by the Cape May County Prosecutors Office, the Wildwood Police Department will release the findings and outcome of the investigation". In a since-deleted Facebook post, Weinman admitted to having beer on her but claimed that she wasn't drinking. Robert Jordan. In a statement released by Wildwood police, they said: This matter is still under investigation, however, in an effort to insure transparency with the public we serve, it was imperative that this video be released as soon as feasibly possible. "One must also question whether proper discretion was used in what should have simply been issuing her a summons for underage possession of alcohol and whether the officers' actions escalated the situation", Stahl continues.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano says the body camera footage will show the woman spitting at the officers and kicking one in the groin.

Prior to the police footage being released, Twitter user Hewitt Lexy posted video of the incident on Saturday, that showed an officer using excessive force. The three officers involved in the altercation have been reassigned to administrative duty, pending the investigation. "At that point, the police officer did what he had to do".

The third body cam video shows the arrest as officers are seen punching the woman multiple times during the apprehension.

She said she shared the video - which has been shared more than 130,000 times online - because the "situation was handled wrongly and blew out of proportion". Maybe not, but then again maybe she did deserve it.

Weinman has a summons to appear in court on June 15.
