Officers caught on video flipping coin to decide whether they'll arrest driver

Version of the game "heads and tails" in such unusual circumstances was recorded and their body-worn cameras.

All of the charges against Webb have been dropped and there's an internal affairs investigation underway.

"Yeah", said Brown. "So released".

They handcuffed Webb, who is seen crying in the video, and arrested her on charges including reckless driving.

"I'm so sorry, I'm late for work", Webb, a hair stylist, is heard telling the officer in body cam video obtained by WSB-TV. "So release?" and then Wilson says "23", or a police code for arrest".

According to the police report filed by Brown, Webb was driving around 85 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone.

"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.

Brown and Wilson were filmed giggling as they were filmed arresting Sarah Webb in April.

The woman, Sarah Webb, 24, had been running late for her shift at a hair salon when she sped past a patrol vehicle April 7 in Roswell, Ga., outside Atlanta.

Brown said she "didn't have speed detection", but the other officer pointed out that the body camera recorded her cruiser's speed, which would have shown how fast she was going to catch up to Webb.

A cops' coin flip sent a woman to jail. The two officers then debated whether to arrest or release Web.

Webb could not immediately be reached for comment.

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

"This is tail, right?" said one officer.

Webb did not know about the coin toss until contacted by the station, which reported several officers knew about the incident but did not raise concerns internally.

"I was very angry and upset", said Webb.

"I just want to see the two officers, I want to see justice", she said. He said he could not discuss details as the investigation was ongoing.

Police officers from Georgia tossed a coin to make a decision on whether to arrest the person or not.
