Wildwood Police have released bodycam video of a confrontation between police and a 20-year-old woman, accused of underage drinking, that happened on the beach this past Saturday.

"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", police in a written statement Wednesday.

"I'm not choking her", the officer says.

Weinman yells that she can't breathe and that she's being choked while she continues to struggle. You can't lock me up. A lawyer tells us if she could actually face jail time for her run in with authorities, who were taped tackling her to the sand and punching her.

An attorney for Weinman told the publication that the charges against her are exaggerated.

Here's a good reason for you to sleep in this weekend
Average sleep duration at weekends and the percentage of those saying they did not feel rested at waking, did fall with age. But channeling your inner cat and sleeping too much can be just as bad for your health , studies have found.

"She tried kicking at us, so I slammed her on the ground", the officer later tells his supervisor, after the woman has been tackled, handcuffed and shoved into the back of a police vehicle.

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

"You thought we were drinking so now you're mad because your Breathalyzer came up negative", Weinman told the two cops as they attempted to write her a ticket.

"All she had to do was give the name", the mayor said. And police said she "forcibly struck" the arresting officer in the torso, causing the body camera to shut off.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano says the body camera footage will show the woman spitting at the officers and kicking one in the groin.

Ellicott City, Maryland floods: Officials assess destruction, search for missing man
A flash flood emergency was issued in Maryland's Howard County at 4:40 p.m. "Clearly this is worse than it was in July of 2016". Water peaked at levels higher than in historic flooding that killed two people and submerged the city in 2016.

On the video, the woman is seen arguing with the officers, who approached her after seeing alcohol nearby.

The nine-minute clip features graphic footage of Wildwood police apprehending Emily Weinman, 20, while she sat on the beach with her daughter, her daughter's father and a friend.

But Wildwood police, reeling under accusations of brutality and excessive force in an incident police Chief Robert Regalbuto initially called "alarming", released three body camera videos Wednesday.

"Alright, you're about to get dropped", the officer says before the video cuts out because Weinman hits him in the chest, knocking the body camera. Did she deserve to get hit? "I keep hearing this, you know, 'She's just a woman she's just a woman.' She's a combatant at that point". The officers involved in the incident have been identified as Ptlm.

Weinman has a summons to appear in court on June 15.
