Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano said the body camera footage will show the woman spitting at the officers and kicking one in the groin. She was visiting the beach with her 18-month-old child and her boyfriend.

"It wasn't just that this officer made a decision to beat her up", he said. You can't lock me up.

The first begins with officers approaching Emily Weinman, of Philadelphia, asking about alcohol.

"OK, I'm done with you... do you have cuffs on you?" one officer says to his partner. The camera was reactivated during the struggle with the woman seen in the third video. She told officers the bottles belonged to her aunt. The officer can be heard saying "that's it" before striking Weinman in the head, She is handcuffed and walked to a police auto.

The nine-minute clip features graphic footage of Wildwood police apprehending Emily Weinman, 20, while she sat on the beach with her daughter, her daughter's father and a friend. "I didn't do anything wrong", as she kicks her legs at the officers.

Wildwood Police Chief Robert Regalbuto defended the officers' actions.

Wildwood's mayor says the incident was not a reflection of the Jersey Shore town.

She says she failed a breathalyser test, but denied she had been drinking the contents of the bottle she had on her.

"The number of people who think she got what she deserved is appalling", Dicht said.

"They're choking me!" Weinman yells while trying to free herself from the officer.

There were a total of three body cam videos released. He then turns off the camera. "She pushed him so hard it knocked the camera off".

Police will release body camera video showing the officers being insulted and spat on.

The officers involved in the incident have been reassigned pending the outcome of the investigation.

Dicht and Weinman told reporters this week she was spitting sand out of her mouth because her face was pressed to the ground. "We didn't even drink alcohol", she tells the officer. "I can not breathe!" she cries out. All are Class II special law enforcement officers.

In his opinion, he said, the officer did not punch the woman in the head.

None of the officers have a history of using excessive force, Regalbuto said.

A Pennsylvania woman's visit to the New Jersey Shore on Memorial Day weekend ended in handcuffs after an encounter with police turned violent. "This year we did it again and we were having the same type of success".
