Emily Weinman, of Philadelphia, was on the beach with her 18-month-old daughter, boyfriend and a friend on Saturday when she was approached by police officers who believed she was drinking alcohol.
In the footage, Weinman takes a breathalyzer test and the officer says he's going to have her pour the alcohol out. But the situation escalates when Weinman refuses to give the officers her last name. One officer is heard saying saying he's "done with" her and works with another cop to try to arrest the woman.
She runs away, shouting profanities and telling the officers not to handcuff her. "You're about to get dropped," the officer responds.
Weinman resists arrest and as the officer continues to approach, she "forcibly struck" him in the torso, Police Chief Robert Regalbuto said — an action he claimed turned the officer's body camera off. It was apparently reactivated as the two struggled in the sand.
The officer punches the woman twice — as voices in the background could be heard shouting "stop resisting" — before Weinman spits in the direction of one of the officers.
