Wildwood mayor says woman arrested on beach 'by far the aggressor'

The new footage shows bystanders aghast at the officer's punching Weinman, with one holding a child but attempting to intervene over screams of "Whoa!" and Weinman screaming, saying she is being choked.

However, the footage released by Wildwood police does not show Weinman insulting officers or spitting at them until she has been pinned down.

An attorney for Weinman told the publication that the charges against her are exaggerated.

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

The newly-released 9-minute clip begins with cops administering a breathalyzer to Weinman, which she appears to pass.

In the ensuing scuffle, Weinman claims the officer is choking her.

As a result of the incident, Weinman was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction, and being a minor in possession of alcohol. In the meantime, the officers involved in the incident have been reassigned to administrative duty.

You see her collide with the officer-knocking off the body camera-according to investigators. You can't lock me up. "I'm not choking you", the officer responds. 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.

On the video, the woman is seen arguing with the officers, who approached her after seeing alcohol nearby.

Wildwood Police released the body-cam footage on Wednesday, which shows an officer questioning Weinman about the presence of alcoholic beverages on the beach. She insults the officers and tells them they're wasting their time. The release said that at the end of the second video, the woman struck the officer in the torso, causing the camera to shut off. "At that point I blacked out and fought any way possible trying to get up and push him off me". "I was partly wrong in a way but I was scared". "Once the officer says "you're under arrest", he has to continue with that arrest".

When Weinman refuses to give the officer her last name, the situation escalates. Once she tried walking away from me, I tried grabbing her. "Maybe not. But then again maybe she did deserve it, I don't know", Troiano added. An officer can be heard saying, "You're about to get dropped".

"She assaults them, she spits at them, she kicks them".

"This young lady attacked our officer", Troiano said.
