the video has gone viral of a police officer punching and putting a woman in a headlock Saturday in front of children and dozens of other people at a New Jersey beach. The woman, identified as 20-year-old Emily Weinman, confirmed the incident in a lengthy Facebook post.
She said police were checking for underage drinkers Saturday and approached her. She allegedly passed a breathalyzer test but then asked the cops if they had something better to do than stop people from underage drinking on the beach. That’s when things went south.
The video shows the officer taking the woman to the ground and punching her in the head repeteadly before putting her in a headlock. A woman from the crowd can be heard repeatedly screaming, “STOP RESISTING, STOP RESISTING” the whole time.
According to a department post on Facebook on Sunday, some officers involved in the incident have been reassigned to administrative duty pending the outcome of a full and thorough investigation.
