Woman Punched Repeatedly by New Jersey Cop Discusses the Arrest

Officer captured punching woman at beach

May 26 cellphone video captured the officer as he hit Weinman multiple times in the head in front of onlookers, including her 1-year-old daughter, on a beach in Wildwood, New Jersey.

The objective 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.

Emily's lawyer says she was initially in custody for only 40 minutes and charged with misdemeanors.

Police said that Weinman struck the officer before he tried to handcuff her, something Weinman denies.

Weinman said Wednesday that she cooperated when cops asked her to take a breathalyzer test because of the sealed alcohol container she had on the beach.


Weinman, who was with her toddler daughter during the arrest, spoke of the toll the viral video, and the reaction of millions of strangers, has taken on her.

"It just escalated to the point to where they wanted to lock me up because I wouldn't give them my name because I did everything they said to do", Weinman said. "After the bystander video came out and started getting attention that's when they charged her with the aggravated assault". "Kind of upset. The things people say about me". You know, they see one video, one situation, and they're like saying all this negative stuff about a person.

Three officers, John Hillman, Robert Jordan and Thomas Cannon, attempted to arrest her.

It was determined by the County Prosecutor's office that the actions of the arresting officer (s) did not meet the evidentiary standards to warrant criminal charges under that law or any other related criminal statutes, according to a release. He also rejected comments made by Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr., who defended the officers' actions and claimed Weinman attacked police. The police department probe is pending.

"A decision such as this is not based on emotion", says County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sutherland.
