"What do you think?" officer Kristee Wilson is heard on the video. "That's reckless driving, ma'am", Officer Courtney Brown tells Webb.

The report said both officers are on administrative leave and the charges against Webb were dropped. Webb said she didn't know that her fate had relied on a coin toss until the television station contacted her.

Brown then returns to her auto to consult with fellow officers about whether to arrest Webb or just give her a ticket.

Webb's mother Teresa, who did not return Yahoo Lifestyle's request for comment, also posted the 11 Alive story on Facebook, writing, "I am sharing my daughter, Sarah Ashley Webb's experience".

Rusty Grant, the chief of police in Roswell, told NBC News that the officers have been placed on leave.

After Brown notes that she doesn't have speed detection on her and Wilson adds that she doesn't have any tickets, the following conversation between the two cops occurs as Brown proceeds to open a coin flip app on her phone. These were the moments that followed. The heads or tails decision went against Webb who was arrested on the more serious charge of reckless conduct and speeding.

A cops' coin flip sent a woman to jail.

"This is tails, right?"

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

But then Wilson suggests a police code for arrest, and the two can be heard laughing.

Officer Brown: "Michael Jordan?"

"Wow, these people put my freedom in the hands of a coin flip", she said.

The news outlet reported Webb was pulled over for a traffic stop this past April for allegedly speeding past a police cruiser. It makes me so upset seeing her crying.

We were in court on Monday when Webb's charges were thrown out. The prosecutor dismissed the case and spoke to Webb.

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

Chief Grant said it's still unclear how long it will take to determine the outcome of the internal investigation.
