Prosecutor to Investigate Wildwood Cop Seen Punching Man on Video
The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office plans to investigate a police incident that happened early Sunday morning, July 12, after an online video surfaced showing a Wildwood police officer repeatedly punching a man on the ground while the man appears to be held down by two other officers.
The short video, shared on Twitter, was taken at about 3:30am Sunday on the sidewalk in front of Club Amnesia, in the 3700 block of Pacific Avenue.
The video shows several Wildwood officers converging around a man being held on the ground, while one cop appears to throw repeated punches at his face.
The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office posted a statement on Facebook Monday saying they would investigate if the officer used unnecessary force.
