Shocking moment officer punches bikini-clad girl in the head during arrest

This shocking video shows the moment a New Jersey officer repeatedly punched a bikini-clad girl in the head during an arrest on Memorial Day weekend. 

In the 50-second video, two officers are seen trying to restrain Emily Weinman, of Philadelphia, who said in a Facebook post that she did nothing wrong. 

‘Stop resisting!’ one of the officers yell before the other is seen hitting her twice in the head before body slamming her on her back. 

‘I’m not resisting. I didn’t do anything wrong,’ Weinman is heard saying as she kicks her legs at the officers.

‘You’re not allowed to hit me like that,’ Weinman repeatedly tells the officers who continue to hold her down and proceed to handcuff the young woman. 

Beachgoers are seen standing around recording the incident on their phones, as a baby is heard crying in the background. 

That baby is believed to be Weinman’s 18-month-old daughter who was being held by her father when her mother was arrested. 

Weinman, who went to the beach with her family and a friend, posted the incident on Facebook with a lengthy description of what she says happened. 

She claims the incident started when the cops approached her on their four wheelers and asked her and her friend for their ages because there was alcohol near them.

‘I had alcohol, it’s Memorial Day weekend and 90 per cent of people are underage drinking on the beach, without a doubt,’ she wrote. 

The pair cooperated with the officers and gave them their ages before getting breathalyzed. 

‘It came back negative. I told them I wasn’t drinking and the alcohol was clearly closed/sealed, which the cops seen,’ she wrote on Facebook.

Weinman said the cops still stayed near them, with one even following her when she walked away to make a phone call.   

‘I asked them don’t they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach, saying to that there’s so much more serious stuff going on… the cop said, “I was gonna let you go but now I’ll write you up” and he asked my name. 

Weinman said that she didn’t ‘do anything wrong and anything could’ve been written down on that paper so I wouldn’t give it to him’. 

She said the officers told her that they were going to arrest her despite her telling them that she was at the beach with her young daughter.  

‘He told me he’s arresting me and started coming towards me to put handcuffs on me. I cautiously was backing up from him (facing him) and yelled for my daughter’s father,’ Weinman wrote. 

Weinman said that she ‘tripped and fell and the cop tackled me to the ground and smashed my head into the sand’. 

Weinman admitted that she should've just given the officer her name to avoid the incident, but 'the whole situation was iffy and I didn¿t trust it' she said. She also said that she is underage, but she hadn't been drinking

Within moments, Weinman said she blacked out and tried to get up and push the officer off of her. 

‘That’s when he head locked me by [putting] his arm around my neck, punched on me in my head and then he head locked me again but this time choking me, I was gasping for air,’ Weinman claims.

She also said that she is underage, but she hadn’t been drinking. She said she shared the video because the ‘situation was handled wrongly and blew out of proportion’.

Weinman said after she was handcuffed, the officers didn’t bother to take the beer that was next to her. 

She believes they were just ‘there to stir the pot’. 

Her video, which was posted on Saturday, has more than 130,000 shares on Facebook. 

The officers in the video are from the Wildwood Police Department. 

Officials confirmed that the video took place on a beach near East Schellinger Avenue.

Wildwood Police are investigating the incident authorities said Sunday.
