It’s getting wild at Wildwood! A video of a Wildwood officer punching a Philadelphia woman has went viral. You can hear in the video the woman saying, “You’re not allowed to hit me like that.”
Emily Weinman, 20, of Philadelphia, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, minor in possession of alcohol, two counts of aggravated assault on police and obstruction after police said she was drinking on the beach, subsequently spit at a police officer and resisted arrest.
“So, I decide to go on the beach with my daughter, her father and friend. I had alcohol. It’s Memorial Day weekend and 90 percent of people are underage drinking on the beach, without a doubt,” said Weinman in a post on Facebook that has since been removed. “Two cops approach me on their four-wheelers and ask me and my friend how old we are. We gave them our ages. Then, we got breathalized, and it came back negative. I told them I wasn’t drinking and the alcohol was clearly closed/sealed, which the cops seen.
The incident began due to Emily drinking underage but, could it have been resolved better? Definitely!
