"Look I don't care who you are and what you are, the worst people (to try to subdue) are women", he said. "She tried to tell us it was okay for her to possess alcohol and that doesn't make any sense".
The officer asked Weinman for her name, which she refused to give, according to the post.
The officer punches the women as she resists.

"She tried kicking at us, so I slammed her on the ground", the officer later tells his supervisor, after the woman has been tackled, handcuffed and shoved into the back of a police auto. She's facing two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and other charges, according to Wildwood police.
But Weinman argues that she did not drink and the alcohol belongs to her aunt. The officer flipped the camera back on mid-discussion, presumably after he explained he would allow Weinman to leave. And police said she "forcibly struck" the arresting officer in the torso, causing the body camera to shut off.
"She assaults them, she spits at them, she kicks them".
I go to stop her for. underage drinking.
None of the officers involved have prior histories of using excessive force but the county prosecutor's office is investigating the incident, Regalbuto said. There would be no ticket that day, he decided, and shut the body camera off, the police would later say.
"That's it", the cop says before punching her in the head several times.
In a Facebook post written over the weekend, and since taken down, Weinman said she had unopened alcohol with her when she was stopped by police while visiting the beach with her daughter, her daughter's father, and a friend.
The police chief told NJ.com that from watching the video, he thinks the officers "did a decent job".
A court date was set for June 6, though Dicht said it will probably be rescheduled for an unknown date.
