No charges warranted against officers in Wildwood arrest, prosecutor says

Wildwood Police

A Philadelphia woman whose violent arrest at a New Jersey beach over Memorial Day weekend was captured on video says she hurt her neck and back in the scuffle and has feelings of anxiety.

"I'm not a criminal". "I'm not a bad person, I'm not this person that they're out here trying to make me seem like".

The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office ended its preliminary investigation regarding the May 26 incident involving Emily Weinman and the Wildwood police on the beach.

Weinman was the subject of a viral video in which she was struck by Wildwood police officers after they stopped her for alleged underage drinking.

Weinman now faces charges for aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting on an officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and being a minor in possession of alcohol. Police bodycam footage and video shot by a beachgoer were released of the incident, showing the confrontation between Weinman and police.

Weinman, the mother of a toddler, admitted on Wednesday to giving the officer "a little attitude" when she asked one of the officers if he had anything better to do than give breathalyzer tests on the beach. Dicht said Weinman wasn't looking for trouble and was just trying to enjoy the day with her child. "It ignores the plain evidence", Dicht said. She says she did not strike the officer when he went to handcuff her, as police have claimed. Weinman's attorney, Stephen Dicht, said that the more serious charges were filed after the bystander video was released.

The goal of the preliminary investigation was to determine whether the Professional Standards Unit ("PSU") of the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office would conduct the Internal Affairs investigation based on possible criminal charges against the arresting officer (s), or whether the Wildwood Police Department would conduct an Administrative Internal Affairs Investigation.

And she has no intention of telling the officers involved that she's sorry, she said in the interview. It turned back on as the officer wrestled Weinman on the sand.

"I recognize that the video footage has raised a lot of questions regarding the officers' actions", Cape May prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland said in a statement Tuesday.

"They think that because they are cops they can get away with it, and that's not the case". She also is unhappy with everything being said about her in the media and in social media discussion.

Weinman can be seen on video getting punched in the face by one of the cops numerous times - with closed fists - while beachgoers look on in shock. She says she "didn't see the point in it" because "something wasn't right with the situation".
