After nearly nine months, the story of the Philadelphia woman has reached its end.

Emily Weinman, of Kensington, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in a plea deal with Cape May County prosecutors Friday, . Weinman will serve a year of probation, and will be barred from Wildwood and its beaches while on probation.


Weinman was offered a plea deal in July, but decided to reject it. In September, Weinman on charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and related offenses. She in November.

The May 26 incident began when Weinman and another person were approached by police officers for allegedly possessing alcohol on the beach, per police body cam footage that was later released by Wildwood police:

Weinman passed a breathalyzer and said the alcohol belonged to her aunt. She refused to give the police officers her name, and one officer said he’d arrest her if she didn’t. 

When she walked away, an officer was heard saying, “Alright, you’re going to get dropped.” Weinman appeared to push the officer, and then was taken to the ground. One of the officers threw punches toward her head.


Police later claimed Weinman struck one of the cops and spat at one before they attempted to arrest her. Both officers were after an investigation by Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland.

“One situation doesn‘t define someone,” Weinman said during a Good Morning America segment in June. “I‘m not a bad person. I‘m not this person that they‘re out here trying to make me seem like.”
