A woman arrested on a Wildwood, New Jersey, beach near East Schellinger Avenue over Memorial Day weekend spoke out in an interview Wednesday on "Good Morning America", after a video of the ordeal quickly trended online. "I was nice and calm - a little attitude", she said with a half-smile. She says she is upset over what people have been saying about her.
"Something in my gut was just telling me ... something wasn't right with the situation, and I just knew in my rights that I didn't have to give them my name due to everything that they did", she told "GMA".
Police say she became belligerent after officers asked her to submit to a Breathalyzer test.
Emily Weinman, whose sunny outing at Wildwood beach in New Jersey turned into a viral video of her being beaten by Jersey cops, told her side of the story this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America". She faces charges including aggravated assault on a police officer.

But the officer told her she still could not have the alcohol under 21. She got sand in her mouth during the struggle and spat it out, with no intention of spitting at the officer, she said of another accusation against her.
Weinman is also charged with spitting on the officer.
The Cape May County Prosecutor's Office determined the officers had not broken any state laws governing use of force and referred the investigation back to the city police department's internal affairs office, prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland wrote in a prepared statement.
Moments later, the officer's body camera showed him on top of Weinman. "A decision such as this is not based on emotion; it is based upon applying the proper laws, policies and directives that govern law enforcement".
