Legal experts weigh in on Wildwood arrest video

The video filmed by another beachgoer Saturday shows two officers trying to subdue Weinman and one officer hitting her in the head.

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

People on the beach yell at her to stop resisting before officers finally placed her under arrest.

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

In a Facebook post written over the weekend, and since taken down, Weinman said she had unopened alcohol with her when she was stopped by police while visiting the beach with her daughter, her daughter's father, and a friend.

Weinman can be heard swearing at officers and arguing with them as they try to hold her to the ground to arrest her. In the meantime, the officers involved in the incident have been reassigned to administrative duty. The body cam video shows the woman appearing to spit toward an officer shortly after.

In the meantime, retired law enforcement officer Steve Rogers says you should give the cops your name if they suspect a crime.

Police said gaps in the footage were a result of the officer switching his bodycam on and off during the incident and also because Wienman struck the officer in the torso, causing the camera to shut off.

It averts possible direct confrontation between Iran and Israel in Syria, where tensions have heightened between the foes. Assad has said that direct conflict between his ally Russian Federation and the USA in Syria was narrowly avoided.

As the officer approaches her, Weinman puts her hands up and appears to touch the camera, and then the video turns off.

Body camera footage released by the Wildwood Police Department in New Jersey shows more details about the controversial arrest of a woman on the beach for underage drinking.

According to the post, an officer followed her after the encounter. "He told me he's arresting me and started coming towards me to put handcuffs on me", she wrote online. Here it seems that two large male officers may have used excessive force on a younger woman to effectuate the arrest. "What they did to her was just an overreaction", Dicht said.

"She wouldn't give me her last name", the officer said.

Dicht's take on the incident stands in sharp contrast to Wildwood, N.J. Mayor Ernie Troiani Jr, who told the news website NJ.com this week that Weinman "refused to comply". "I didn't do anything wrong".

"You're not allowed to hit me and choke me like that", Weinman shouts. Things escalate. At one point you hear an officer say, "You're about to get dropped".

"All she had to do was give the name", the mayor said.
