The article goes on to state the following:
The footage shows multiple Wildwood Police Department officers working in concert to subdue a woman they identified as Emily Weinman, a 20-year-old from Philadelphia, who is seen flailing her arms and legs in a one-piece black swimsuit.
The cops manage to wrestle Weinman to the sand and one is seen throwing three punches with his right fist downward to her head, while another pins her bare legs.
Numerous beachgoers circling the melee can be heard repeatedly warning Weinman, “Stop resisting.”
According to the report, Weinman faces charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, possession of alcohol by a minor and more.
