Woman in videotaped Wildwood beach arrest accepts plea deal

WILDWOOD -

A Philadelphia woman whose violent arrest at the Jersey Shore over Memorial Day weekend last year was captured on video has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Emily Weinman faced numerous charges stemming from the confrontation in Wildwood, including assaulting a police officer.

She pleaded guilty Friday in a plea deal with Cape May County prosecutors that called for her to serve a year of probation. She also will be barred from Wildwood and its beaches during that time.

The beach confrontation began when Weinman repeatedly refused to give police officers her name when they questioned her about the presence of alcohol on the beach. A video shot by a nearby beachgoer showed an officer punching her twice in the head as she lies on the sand, her legs flailing.

The officers involved were cleared of wrongdoing.
