Investigation: Arrest was left up to 'flip of a coin'

Cops who arrested a speeding female motorist on the FLIP OF A COIN are placed on leave

Cops who arrested a speeding female motorist on the FLIP OF A COIN are placed on leave

The officers landed on tails, but made a decision to arrest Webb anyway for reckless driving, leaving the motorist sobbing in the back of the police vehicle.

The coin app, which can be spinning and dropping, lands tails but they decide to arrest her anyway.

Webb told officers when she was first pulled over that she was speeding because she was late for work. Wilson sets the parameters: Heads, arrest.

Minutes later, the officers are back in the patrol auto and are heard on body-camera saying, "A head, R tail", likely standing for "arrest" and "release". Early in the discussion, Brown says she is considering arresting Webb for reckless driving.

"I was appalled to believe that a police officer would let a flip of a coin be a deciding factor on whether or not to issue somebody a citation, or more importantly to take somebody into custody", Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said to ABC.

"I'm sorry", Webb responds, voice quaking. She cries as she is being handcuffed, and footage from inside the vehicle shows her sobbing in the back seat.

Brown had pulled Webb over and said, "The ground's wet, it's been raining".

"OK (sound of coin flip) laugh", Brown says.

Webb, who claimed to have been speeding because she was late for work, is heard asking the officers, "Why am I being arrested?"

Webb told CNN she spent the day in jail.

"Nothing in the actions of these two officers is consistent with the Atlanta Police Department's training or its expectations of its sworn personnel", Chafee said. The two officers then debated whether to arrest or release Web.

We were in court on Monday when Webb's charges were thrown out.

Webb could not immediately be reached for comment.

"I just want to see the two officers, I want to see justice", she said.

With the body cam still recording, the cop opens up a coin toss app on her phone. He said he could not discuss details as the investigation was ongoing.

"I've been a law enforcement professional for nearly 40 years and, again, I was appalled to believe that a police officer would let a flip of a coin be the deciding factor in whether to issue someone a citation or, more importantly, take someone into custody", Grant said.
