Police investigating video depicting officer punching woman during arrestIn the video you can see 20-year-old Emily Weinman getting breathalyzed by a Wildwood police officer, having been approached for suspicion of underage drinking.

Footage of a woman punched and strangled by police on Wildwood Beach in New Jersey (USA), Saturday, May 26, has been viewed more than six million times.

The newly released video shows officers approach Weinman at a Wildwood beach, question the 20-year-old and a friend about underage drinking and make them take a breathalyzer test. When officers said they found alcohol, Weinman claimed it belonged to her aunt, and then called her.

She said the officer tackled her to the ground, forcing her to black out.

The officers involved were identified as Class II patrolmen Thomas Cannon, John Hillman, and Robert Jordan.

"But if I was on probation, maybe if I wouldn't want to give my identity up", Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said.

"During the initial encounter, the Officer can be heard stating that he was just going to have Ms. Weinman pour the alcohol out, without issuing any violations and then he terminates the recording", said police in a news release.

This was the case previous year , but the balance has shifted this season with the introduction of a softer range of tyres. A fan who was listening in shouted: "Most boring race ever". "Thank you!" came the heartfelt response from the German.

"You're about to get dropped", the officer warns. "I was partly wrong in a way but I was scared". The officer goes after Weinman, who backed away from him.

Police say Weinman forcibly struck the officer in the torso where the body camera was mounted and caused the camera to turn off.

The arrest, which was filmed and posted on Facebook, shows an officer on top of Weinman, hitting her twice in the head while someone repeatedly yells, "Stop resisting". "They're choking me. I can not breathe". As an officer places handcuffs on her, she can be seen in the video spitting at him. "At that point, the police officer did what he had to do", he said.

"Look I don't care who you are and what you are, the worst people (to try to subdue) are women", he said.

She was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids at/on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction and minor in possession of alcohol.

"This young lady attacked our officer", Troiano said.

"I know that didn't come up positive". "She probably would have just gotten a citation". The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office, Professional Standards Unit will assist in the investigation.
