Video Shows Cops Using Coin Flip To Decide Whether To Arrest Woman

"That's reckless driving, ma'am".

"My civil liberties were violated", Webb said Friday.

"What do you think?" Wilson asks. Brown laughs, and opens an app on her phone that performs a digital coin flip.

The pair of officers sat in their vehicle debating the matter for a short period before opening up a coin toss app and determining that heads meant arrest and tails meant release.

However, the video shows them discussing whether to arrest or ticket her. Version of the game "heads and tails" in such odd circumstances was recorded and their body-worn cameras.

"This is tails, right?"

"Yeah, so release?" Brown replies.

WSB-TV reports 23 and Michael Jordan are code words police use to refer to an arrest.

"Yeah, so release?" the other officer said.




The officers decide to charge Webb with going too fast for conditions and reckless driving.

Roswell PD pulled over Sarah Webb back in April for driving 80 miles per hour in a 45 miles per hour zone on a rainy day. Brown then arrests Webb, handcuffing her and putting her in the back of a patrol vehicle.

She said she's still contemplating whether or not to seek legal action after the coin toss that tossed her into jail and into the public limelight. It makes me so upset to know what they have done to her, ' she wrote.

"She said, "I have watched the videos and I absolutely refuse to prosecute this case", Webb said.

"These are people who are supposed to protect us, and instead are treating our freedom and our lives like games", she said. CNN affiliate WSB reported charges against the motorist have since been dropped.

"I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision-making process of something as important as the arrest of a person", Roswell Police Department Chief Rusty Grant said in the statement, adding that an investigation had been launched and the officers were on administrative leave.

"Since this is an open internal investigation, I can not discuss the details of the incident until the conclusion of the investigation", Grant said.

Webb said she would like to see the officers fired.
