Police investigating video depicting officer punching woman during arrestIn the video you can see 20-year-old Emily Weinman getting breathalyzed by a Wildwood police officer, having been approached for suspicion of underage drinking.

The videos provide context minutes before the initial bystander video, which begins when an officer is already on top of Weinman, capturing the moment he brings his fist and forearm on and around her head.

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.

"You thought we were drinking so now you're mad because your Breathalyzer came up negative", Weinman told the two cops as they attempted to write her a ticket.

In the footage, Ms Weinman takes a breath test and claims that she hadn't consumed any alcohol. When Weinman refuses to give her name, the officer threatens to "lock her up".

"Look I don't care who you are and what you are, the worst people (to try to subdue) are women", he said. As Weinman made a phone call, the officer turned off the body cam, and the alcohol gets poured out. Wildwood police said the delay in releasing the video was due to hiding the identities of others on the beach not involved in the incident.

Wildwood, New Jersey, Mayor Ernie Troiano defended police officers' actions during the controversial arrest of 20-year-old Emily Weinman over Memorial Day weekend.

According to the post, an officer followed her after the encounter. "I can not breathe!" she cries out. The officer then asks another officer whether he has cuffs, and Weinman takes a few steps away from the officers. She said the officer then informed her he was arresting her. "At that point I blacked out and fought any way possible trying to get up and push him off me". "I didn't do anything wrong". Her attorney says they will fight these charges. She went on to add that she was "partly wrong in a way" for not giving the officer her name, but that she didn't comply out of fear, NBC Philadelphia reported. "She tried to tell us it was okay for her to possess alcohol and that doesn't make any sense".

"You're not allowed to hit me and choke me like that", Weinman shouts. Troiano told Philly.com Tuesday that they were Class II officers hired for the summer season.

One officer is heard to say, "You're about to get dropped", before the physical altercation occurs. The second time, Troiano said, the woman moved her head in a direction of the officer's hand.
