Cops Toss Coin in Driver's Arrest in Georgia

S | Woman arrested on the flip of a coin

With their options only to arrest Sarah and take her to jail or to release her, Brown turned to a coin for help.

Heads meant Webb would be arrested; tales means the woman was free to go. Officer Courtney Brown added a charge of reckless driving because of the wet pavement but asked fellow officers what she should do. Officer Kristee Wilson suggests that heads should mean arrest and tails should mean release.

Batman villain Two-Face liked to flip a coin to decide one's fate.

He says Officer Brown and Officer Wilson are both on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

The officers are being dubbed #CoinFlipCops.

Webb is handcuffed and taken to jail once Officer Brown returns to her vehicle.

The officers then used a coin flipping app to decide whether to arrest Webb for reckless driving or to simply give her a ticket, as shown in body camera footage obtained earlier this week by NBC-affiliate WXIA 11Alive.

The officer estimated her speed because she didn't have a radar gun.

Trump denies criticising Theresa May in United Kingdom newspaper interview
Observers contend that Trump's schedule has seen him deliberately avoid London , an accusation his convoy denies. He will steer clear of the demonstrations on Friday by meeting May and Queen Elizabeth outside London .

Officer Wilson: "This is tail right?"

"I approached the vehicle, announced myself as a city of Roswell police officer, and asked the driver is she knew how fast she was going", an officer said in the Roswell Police Department incident report. "WEBB was placed in custody in Smith & Wesson handcuffs which were double locked and seated in the rear of my patrol vehicle".

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

But there are no indications they had similar conduct there, he said.

But in a statement, Grant said an internal investigation was immediately opened after he became aware of the incident.

"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", he said.

"These are people who are supposed to protect us, and instead are treating our freedom and our lives like games", she said.
