Video shows officer punching woman in head at a beach in Wildwood, NJ



[Source: NJ.com / video: Emily Weinmen ]

A video made its rounds on social media Saturday showing police officers wrestling a woman to the ground and punching her in the head at a beach in Wildwood. 
The video shared on Twitter nearly 8,000 times begins when an officer has the woman pinned down and she is kicking her legs in the air. People in the background can be heard shouting "stop resisting," before the officer punches the woman in the head twice.
Another officer is seen trying to subdue the woman as well. 
The woman who posted the video to Twitter said the incident happened shorty after 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Emily Weinman of Philadelphia posted the video on her Facebook page, saying she is underage and had alcohol on the beach when officers approached her. 
Weinman said she passed a breathalyzer test and afterwards, police followed her as she walked away to make a phone call. 
"I asked them don't they have something better to do as cops than to stop people for underage drinking on the beach," the Facebook post reads, and that's when Weinman claims an officer said, "I was gonna let you go but now I'll write you up."
Weinman said she refused to give the officer her name and the officer threatened to arrest her. She said as she was backing away she tripped and fell, and an officer tackled her.
