Woman Physically Assaulted by Police Officer on the Beach

  • Wildwood New Jersey Mayor Ernie Troiano defended the police Tuesday noting Weinman was'by far the aggressor here and pointing out that women can be harder to subdue than men

A police investigation is underway in New Jersey after a disturbing video of an officer punching a woman on the beach went viral. The video cuts out momentarily, then shows Weinman screaming as the police officer pulls her to the ground and grabs her hair. Weinman said on Facebook she was at the beach with her daughter and some friends Saturday and that she had not been drinking when her confrontation with police began.

Moving closer to Weinman as she backs up, the responding officer tells her that he's "done" asking for her last name as he asks his colleague for handcuffs.

"First of all, there was an issue regarding underage drinking so the age right there tells you that she must give up her name".

The officer asks Weinman about her aunt's whereabouts and then is heard telling the other officer that he is going to have the women pour the alcohol out. The officers involved have been reassigned but are reportedly fully trained, part-time officers used during the busy beach season, reports CBS News' Jericka Duncan.

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.

"No, let go of me", she screams.

Dicht, Weinman's lawyer, said that in viewing the video, he did not see Weinman striking the officer and said it appeared that the officer was the one who escalated the incident. 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.


"From what I see on the video and only on the video, from not even talking to the officers, I think they did a decent job", Regalbuto said.

According to the post, an officer followed her after the encounter.

She tells the officer to stop choking her and "get the fuck off me" and an arm can be seen coming down - apparently the moment when she was struck by the officer.

The officer then tells the woman that she's "causing a scene", and offers her one more chance to provide her last name. "At that point, the police officer did what he had to do", he said.

"It's unfortunate all the way around", said Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. She tried kicking at us, so I slammed her on the ground.

"It's just a shame that all she had to do was comply", Troiano said. "I didn't do anything wrong". As the video continues, Weinman says, "I didn't do anything to disrespect you".

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