But Weinman refused to give the officer her name.
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. But others questioned the officer's actions, including the statement, heard in body camera footage from the May 26 arrest, from the police officer, who appears to lose patience with Weinman and tells her: "That's it".
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.
Emily Weinman, 20, is facing assault charges after a run-in with authorities at the beach on Memorial Day weekend. They see one video and one situation and say all this negative stuff about a person. "That is not right at all", said Weinman. "I'm not a bad person", she said. "It ignores the plain evidence", Dicht said. But she says the negative responses people have made about her have been upsetting.
Weinman said she suffered injuries to her neck, back and head as a result of the incident and that the psychological aftermath has been "emotionally exhausting". She got sand in her mouth during the struggle and spat it out, with no intention of spitting at the officer, she said of another accusation against her.Читайте также: United States must stop separating migrant children from parents
Dicht, her attorney, said "She didn't go out that Saturday looking for trouble".
Weinman can be seen on video getting punched in the face by one of the cops numerous times - with closed fists - while beachgoers look on in shock. They're the ones charged with protecting the public preserving the peace. "A decision such as this is not based on emotion; it is based upon applying the proper laws, policies and directives that govern law enforcement".
Three officers, John Hillman, Robert Jordan and Thomas Cannon, attempted to arrest her.
On Tuesday, the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office said a preliminary investigation determined the arresting officers' actions "did not meet the evidentiary standards to warrant criminal charges".
Amid the prosecutor's office's decision, the Internal Affairs Unit of the Wildwood Police Department will hold an administrative investigation, the office said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
