Video shows cops using coin flip to decide whether to arrest

S | Woman arrested on the flip of a coin

Body camera video shows Georgia police officers laughing as they use a coin-flip app to decide whether to detain a woman during a traffic stop in April.

The officers decide to charge Webb with going too fast for conditions and reckless driving. The two officers determine they will arrest Webb if it lands on heads and release her if it lands on tails.

Brown says she didn't record the actual speed at which Webb had been driving.

The coin, according to the officers, landed on tails, which meant they should have let Webb go with a speeding ticket.

"They knew right where to go for the app, they did the coin toss, they thought it was cute", Dorsey continued. Wilson asks. Brown laughs, and opens an app on her phone that performs a digital coin flip.

The shocking heard-on-camera moment took place April 7 when 24-year-old Sarah Webb was pulled over by Roswell police.

Former Los Angeles Police Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey told IE she thinks this isn't the cops' first time doing this "because they did it easily". The other officer responds, "Yeah, so release?" followed by the first officer saying "23".

He confirmed that a medic and all navy SEAL divers involved in the rescue mission had also left the cave safely. He posted photos of the cave interior and a video showing people working their way through chest-high water.

"I asked WEBB to step out of the vehicle and place her hands behind her back", the arresting officer wrote in a report.

Twenty-three is a Roswell police code for arrest.

Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said an internal department source told him about the incident right before July 4. She was handcuffed and placed in the back of the police cruiser crying.

Prosecutors dismissed the charges Monday after viewing the video.

'I couldn't believe what I was seeing, to be honest, ' Grant said.

"I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision-making process of something as important as the arrest of a person", Grant said in a statement Friday.

'I would like to see them fired, because they shouldn't have been playing with my freedom on a flip of a coin, ' she said.
