Cpl. Eric Casebolt, the McKinney, TX police officer placed on paid administrative leave after video of him throwing a teen on the ground at pool party went viral, has resigned.
McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley says Officer Casebolt’s actions on the video are “indefensible,” and don't represent the local police force.
From the Dallas Morning News:
Casebolt resigned “on his own will” while under investigation, Conley says. Casebolt will get to keep his pension and benefits, the chief says.
“Our policies, our training and our practice do not support his actions,” the chief said. “He came into the call out of control and, as the video shows, was out of control during the incident.”
“I had 12 officers on the scene and 11 of them performed according to their training.”
The chief says an investigation is under way to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed.
