$325,000 Settlement To Philadelphia Woman After Beach Arrest

Beach

Emily Weinman, a Philadelphia woman, who was arrested on a beach two years ago, reached a $325,000 settlement with the Jersey Shore city, which had been sued over claims that two seasonal police officers used excessive force against her.

Emily Weinman, who was 20 at the time of the arrest, claimed that she was assaulted after she refused to give her last name to two officers who had stopped at the beach after seeing unopened bottles of alcoholic Tea next to her cooler. The woman was on the beach with her daughter and a friend.

The woman filed the federal civil lawsuit last year after she accepted a plea deal on May 26, 2018.
