'Just an overreaction' for officers to repeatedly punch woman: Defense attorney

Posted June 02, 2018

Police in New Jersey have released three segments of body camera footage showing an officer wrestling a woman to the sand at a beach and punching her head during an arrest, according The Star Ledger. He said he was appalled by the number of people who had posted that Weinman "got what she deserved". Stephen Dicht, Weinman's lawyer, told NJ.com that the footage "shows the police overreacted and used excessive force", and reiterated his prior statement that the officers hadn't received proper training in the use of force.

"First of all, there was an issue regarding underage drinking so the age right there tells you that she must give up her name".

"They asked her to give a breathalyzer; she did it not once, but twice", Dicht said.

It should be noted that the breathalyzer came out negative after Weinman was instructed to take the test by officers.

Weinman was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

You see her collide with the officer-knocking off the body camera-according to investigators.

"Get off of me, don't pull my hair, what are you doing?" The officer goes after Weinman, who backed away from him. Wildwood police said the delay in releasing the video was due to hiding the identities of others on the beach not involved in the incident.

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

Images from the video released earlier this week shows an officer punching a woman on a beach in New Jersey. The alcohol belonged to her aunt, Weinman explained sternly but calmly, and she was on her way back.

She tells the officer to stop choking her and "get the fuck off me" and an arm can be seen coming down - apparently the moment when she was struck by the officer. "I didn't take a drink of anything", she can be heard saying in the video.

"I'm not choking her", the officer says. "Again, until I interview the officer, I won't have that answer if that's what he was trying to do".

The officers decide to cite her anyway and ask for her name, which she refuses to give.

Wildwood's mayor defended the officers, saying that they did what they had to do.

"She assaults them, she spits at them, she kicks them". "They didn't find that she had done anything wrong", Dicht said. "I was partly wrong in a way but I was scared".

"She tried walking away from me", the officer says.
