Woman speaks out post-Wildwood arrest: 'I'm not a bad person'

WILDWOOD, N.J. (AP/WTXF) -- A Philadelphia woman whose violent arrest at a New Jersey beach over the Memorial Day weekend was captured on video says the incident has left her feeling anxious.

Appearing Wednesday on ABC's "Good Morning America," 20-year-old Emily Weinman said her neck and back were hurt in the confrontation in Wildwood. But she says the negative responses people have made about her have been upsetting.

"I've been real anxious over it," Weinman said. "Kind of upset. The things people say about me. They see one video and one situation and say all this negative stuff about a person. But one situation doesn't define someone. I'm not a bad person. I'm not this person that they're out here trying to make me seem like."

The latter video showed an officer punching Weinman twice in the head. Wildwood officials have said the videos show she assaulted the officers first, while her lawyer has said police overreacted.
