Woman Who Claimed Brutality Over 'Nothing' Is Indicted On 5 Charges

Bodycam footage showed Emily Weinman as she fought and spit on Wildwood police officers during her arrest.

Wildwood, NJ – A woman seen in a viral video as she fought and spit on Wildwood police officers during an arrest at a local beach on Memorial Day weekend has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

A Cape May County grand jury also indicted Emily Weinman, who is now 21 years old, on charges of throwing bodily fluids, obstruction, and resisting arrest, the Associated Press reported.

A bystander’s cell phone footage of Weinman’s arrest quickly went viral, and showed one officer as he hit the combative woman during the altercation.

The officers involved in the entitled woman’s arrest were cleared of wrongdoing by Cape May County prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland on June 5, NJ.com reported.

Weinman was offered a plea agreement, but turned it down in July, according to the Associated Press.

The incident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. on May 26, when Wildwood police encountered Weinman at the beach with her boyfriend and 18-month-old daughter.

The officers noted that Weinman and her boyfriend were in possession of alcohol, and asked them how old they were.

In a since-deleted Facebook post, Weinman explained that although she was underage, 90 percent of people who drink alcohol on the beach are underage “without a doubt.”

When the officers asked for their ages, she admitted they were underage, bodycam footage showed.

She claimed that the alcohol belonged to her aunt, so the officer asked her to contact her to have her come to their location.

Weinman grabbed her cell phone, then wandered away from the officers.

“Go grab her real quick,” one officer told his partner. “We’re gonna have them pour that all out.”

In her post, Weinman claimed that the officer was going to let her off with a warning, but that he changed his mind after she told him he needed to find “something better to do” than to address underage drinking on the beach.

Weinman argued that “you’re allowed to carry alcohol,” even when underage, and claimed she had done nothing wrong, because she hadn’t consumed any, the video showed.

The officer explained that possession of alcohol was still a violation, despite Weinman’s beliefs to the contrary.

When the officers asked Weinman and her boyfriend for their identifying information, she became argumentative, and refused to cooperate.

Weinman said that she "did not do anything wrong," so she refused to give the officer her name because "anything could’ve been written down on that paper," according to her Facebook post.

“You’ll lock me up for obstruction with my f--king 18-month-old daughter over there?” she asked an officer at one point in the video.

Despite being given multiple additional opportunities to provide officers with her name, Weinman continued to argue and kicked one of the officers before she began to leave the area, according to police.

“Okay, that’s it. I’m done with you,” the officer said, grabbing a pair of handcuffs from his partner. “Come here.”

“Don’t you f--king touch me!” Weinman turned around and yelled, before she resumed her march away from the pursuing officer.

“You’re about to get dropped,” he cautioned her.

“Yo! Don’t f--king cuff me!” Weinman yelled.

According to Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto, Weinman “forcibly struck” the officer in the torso, which caused his camera to turn off, NJ.com reported.

You can see the camera going off at the moment of impact.

That's when Weinman said she backed up and "tripped and fell." After tripping and falling, she claimed the officer somehow tackled her to the ground and "smashed my head in the sand."

"At that point I blacked out and fought any way possible trying to get up and push him off me," Weinman posted.

The fight between the officer and Weinman was underway when the officer managed to reactivate his bodycam.

As they tumbled onto the sand, Weinman hurled expletives at the officer, and continued to resist arrest, the video showed.

“They’re choking me!” she began to scream, while beachgoers looked on. “You f--king d-ck head! Get the f--k off me, yo!”

The officer delivered several strikes to subdue the combative woman, who began wailing and screaming for her boyfriend.

“You’re not allowed to beat me like that!” she complained in the video. “I’m a woman!”

“Get off me! My daughter is right there seeing this!” Weinman continued, while the officers secured her in handcuffs.

Weinman turned her head, and spit at one of the officers during the scuffle before she was led away to a waiting patrol vehicle.

"I can say if I took even a sip, then I would’ve gave them my information and called it a day; I’m underage, so I know better” Weinman wrote in her Facebook post. “But this whole situation was handled wrongly and blew out of proportion all because these pigs didn’t do their jobs the way they were TRAINED to do so.”

In the past, Weinman’s attorney, Stephen Dicht, argued that she was the victim of excessive force, and that the altercation left her with injuries, depression, and made her a “prisoner in her home,” NJ.com reported.

Perhaps, of her parents had taught her to respect the Police, she wouldn't be sitting in jail. These kids act as if Resisting Arrest and Assaulting an Officer is their Constitutional Right.

Glad to see the follow up and charges. Don't need to watch that cocky, disrespectful, foul mouthed creature again. Wonder how that poor child will turn out with such a mother?

Lmao. stupid twat. Too bad her parent(s) taught her that because she's a female she can say and do whatever she wants and gets treated with kid gloves. Guess she learned a hard lesson in reality. TG, at least in this case, justice seems to have been correct. maybe now she learned that if you want to be treated as a lady, you act as a lady.

Interesting to see the prosecutor doubling down here. This one could go either way, I think. Guaranteed civil suit if a jury acquits, but I think her lawyer said that they were going to sue soon after the time of the incident, so I guess there wasn't much to lose by pressing criminal charges to the max -- although the police officers will be in a somewhat worse posture in the planned civil suit against them if nothing sticks beyond the possession of alcohol charge.

It’s rare that someone being placed under arrest has the right to forcefully resist. But in most states, if the arresting officer uses excessive force that could cause “great bodily harm,” the arrestee has the right to defend him or herself. That’s because most states hold that an officer’s use of excessive force amounts to assault or battery, which a victim has a right to defend against.

For all the Burgers Alldays of this site, this is something called the use of force continuum. Something used by all law enforcement officers in the US. It looks like this, so learn this and don't push your luck and it may save you an ass whooping in the future if you plan on resisting arrest.

The Use-of-Force Continuum Most law enforcement agencies have policies that guide their use of force. These policies describe a escalating series of actions an officer may take to resolve a situation. This continuum generally has many levels, and officers are instructed to respond with a level of force appropriate to the situation at hand, acknowledging that the officer may move from one part of the continuum to another in a matter of seconds.

An example of a use-of-force continuum follows:

Officer Presence — No force is used. Considered the best way to resolve a situation. The mere presence of a law enforcement officer works to deter crime or diffuse a situation. Officers' attitudes are professional and nonthreatening. Verbalization — Force is not-physical. Officers issue calm, nonthreatening commands, such as "Let me see your identification and registration." Officers may increase their volume and shorten commands in an attempt to gain compliance. Short commands might include "Stop," or "Don't move." Empty-Hand Control — Officers use bodily force to gain control of a situation. Soft technique. Officers use grabs, holds and joint locks to restrain an individual. Hard technique. Officers use punches and kicks to restrain an individual. Less-Lethal Methods — Officers use less-lethal technologies to gain control of a situation. (See Deciding When and How to Use Less-Lethal Devices. ) Blunt impact. Officers may use a baton or projectile to immobilize a combative person. Chemical. Officers may use chemical sprays or projectiles embedded with chemicals to restrain an individual (e.g., pepper spray). Conducted Energy Devices (CEDs). Officers may use CEDs to immobilize an individual. CEDs discharge a high-voltage, low-amperage jolt of electricity at a distance. Lethal Force — Officers use lethal weapons to gain control of a situation. Should only be used if a suspect poses a serious threat to the officer or another individual. Officers use deadly weapons such as firearms to stop an individual's actions.
