Police in a New Jersey beach town have released body camera footage showing the violent arrest of a Philadelphia woman accused of underage drinking over the Memorial Day weekend. After a back and forth between Weinman and the officer, she refuses to give the officer her whole name. The officer then says, "You're about to get dropped". "I didn't disrespect you".

When he tries to arrest her, she resists and hurls expletives as they struggle in the sand.

"The cop said, "I was gonna let you go but now I'll write you up" and he asked my name". She tells them the unopened alcohol belongs to her aunt, who is on her way to the beach.

Ms Weinman can be seen walking away from the officers as they attempt to arrest her and while she appears to shove one cop, her alleged kicks can't be seen. Robert Jordan. Wildwood police have since released a statement: 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. As the officer approaches Weinman, she repeatedly yells "don't touch me".

The incident gained global attention over the weekend when a bystander posted video to social media showing an officer punching Emily Weinman in the head during the arrest.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said on Tuesday that the officer "did what he had to do", according to the newspaper. And police said she "forcibly struck" the arresting officer in the torso, causing the body camera to shut off.

The body camera footage released on Wednesday shows an officer as he confronts and argues with Weinman over the discovery of alcoholic iced tea drinks in her possession. As an officer places handcuffs on her, she can be seen in the video spitting at him. "I didn't do anything to get written up, did I?"

She says she failed a breathalyser test, but denied she had been drinking the contents of the bottle she had on her.

The video shows police have the woman by her hair.

One of the officers punched Weinman as she resisted, and as she was being cuffed, she spat in the officer's direction before being taken to a nearby police vehicle.

Police Chief Robert Regalbuto said in a news release that the officer had turned his camera on and off during the encounter. "If she prevails in this then she certainly could pursue a civil action for any physical/emotional/injuries".

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

Troiano told Philly.com that Weinman "chose to attack the officer, spit on the officer".
