Wildwood police have released body camera footage of the controversial arrest on the beach over Memorial Day weekend.

The newly released video shows officers approach Weinman at a Wildwood beach, question the 20-year-old and a friend about underage drinking and make them take a breathalyzer test.

Police officers asked Weinman to breathe into a breath analysis device after they found alcohol near her beach blankets.

"You're about to get dropped", the officer warns. "I didn't disrespect you".

Beachgoers try to intervene as Weinman screams, "You're not allowed to hit me and choke me like that".

"She wouldn't give me her last name", the officer said. On Wednesday, police released body cam footage.

Wildwood mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. told the Inquirer that Weinman insulted the officers and spit on them; Weinman had denied those claims and insisted that she was attempting to get sand out of her mouth after the officers put her on the ground. Wildwood police said on their Facebook page that 20-year-old Emily Weinman of Philadelphia faces several charges, including aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Weinman's arrest and the way the officers handled the situation remains under investigation.

Patrick's career comes to crashing end at Indy 500
Patrick lost traction on a slippery surface, spun as she exited Turn 2 and then slammed into two walls before coming to a stop. Drivers compensated by hydrating heavily before the race so they could complete a race that lasted more than three hours.

An officer tells her she has one last chance to provide her identification.

That nine-minute clip, released late Wednesday, shows the officer's perspective during the confrontation-which garnered national attention after a video shared on Twitter showed cops repeatedly punching and choking the young woman.

As an officer places handcuffs on Weinman, she can be seen in the video spitting at him.

Troiano added, "I keep hearing this, you know, 'She's just a woman, she's just a woman.' She's a combatant at that point". In this instance, much will come down to a thorough review of all the cellphone videos, body cameras on the police officers (if any) and witness statements as to whether she resisted arrest, and if so, whether the officers used only sufficient force to subdue her. You can see Weinman and the officer collide, knocking off the body camera.

None of the officers involved have prior histories of using excessive force but the county prosecutor's office is investigating the incident, Regalbuto said.

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

The officers were identified as Class II patrolmen Thomas Cannon, John Hillman and Robert Jordan.

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