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

Chief Rusty Grant told FOX 5 News prosecutors dropped the charges after the Fulton County Solicitor General's Office learned of the circumstance surrounding the arrest of Webb.

As she sat in her auto, damning bodycam footage obtained by 11Alive shows officer Brown return to the patrol vehicle to consult fellow officer Wilson on what she should do.

"'A" (Arrest), head; "R' (Release), tail", Wilson says before both officers giggle. Brown says "Okay" and laughs.

According to news outlet 11Alive, two officers from Roswell, Ga., have been placed on administrative leave after dashcam video surfaced of them deciding the fate of motorist Sarah Webb based on a coin flip.

Brown and Wilson have been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, according to WXIA.

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

The unnamed police officer told WXIA that everyone in the department knew about the incident for months. She then can be heard saying, "Hold on", as she opens a coin-flip app on her phone.

Antonio Conte has been sacked by Chelsea
The Italian's time at Chelsea has been controversial since allowing striker Diego Costa to leave last summer. Napoli's midfielder Jorginho is reportedly linked with a move to Chelsea .

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

The woman they pulled over said she's dismayed by the officers' coin flip approach. The case against her has now been dismissed.

Webb had already spent a few hours in jail and had her auto impounded by the arresting officer despite her boyfriend showing up to retrieve it.

Officer Wilson: "This is tail right?"

"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.

"I believe that this is not the first time they have done this because they did it easily - they knew right where to go for the coin toss in the app; they thought it was cute", she said.

"It just hurt to know that these people are supposed to be looking out for you and it was a game to them", she said.
