Two Georgia police officers have been stripped of their guns and placed on administrative leave following body camera footage that showed them arresting a woman based on the flip of a coin.

Brown steps out of the vehicle and tells Webb she is being arrested.

Roswell Police Officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson were involved in a traffic stop April 7 after Brown pulled over Sarah Webb, who was on her way to work. The heads or tails decision went against Webb who was arrested on the more serious charge of reckless conduct and speeding.

Back in the patrol vehicle, officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson faced a decision. Though the coin reportedly landed on tails, the officers chose to arrest Webb anyway.

"Yeah, so release?" Brown replies.

But in a statement, Grant said an internal investigation was immediately opened after he became aware of the incident. "This behavior is not indicative of the hard working officers of the Roswell Police Department, 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".
