Police in Wildwood, New Jersey released body cam video showing Saturday's arrest of a 20-year-old woman on the beach.

The bodycam video shows a confrontation between officers and Emily Weinman, 20, after a breathalyser test was administered, which Weinman appears to pass. Weinman screams in the video, as she walks away from the officer.

"OK, that's it ― I'm done with you", one police officer can be heard saying in the video before asking his partner for handcuffs. "Once the officer says "you're under arrest", he has to continue with that arrest".

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

The officer asked Weinman for her name, which she refused to give, according to the post.

As the second officer holds her legs steady, a third approaches to control the gathering crowd. "I tripped and fell and the cop tackled me to the ground and smashed my head into the sand", she wrote.

As a result of the incident, Weinman was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, aggravated assault by spitting bodily fluids on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, obstruction, and being a minor in possession of alcohol.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. tells Philly.com the entire episode was a "shame". Cell phone video on social media captured an officer striking her during the course of the arrest. The two wrestle on the ground, as she repeatedly shouts "get the fuck off me" and "I didn't do anything". Emily Weinman said the police then asked her for her ID. In the meantime, the officers involved in the incident have been reassigned to administrative duty.

Police Chief Robert Regalbuto said in a news release that the officer had turned his camera on and off during the encounter. Did she deserve to get hit?

Cell phone video went viral showing the woman being punched in the head twice by an officer as he tried to restrain her. Wildwood officials say the videos show Weinman assaulting the officers first. And then I put her in cuffs and locked her up. Their names are Thomas Cannon, John Hillman and Robert Jordan, though it's unclear which officer hit Weinman.

She said she shared the video - which has been shared more than 130,000 times online - because the "situation was handled wrongly and blew out of proportion".

A court date was set for June 6, though Dicht said it will probably be rescheduled for an unknown date.
