McKinney, TX- Corporal Eric Casebolt, the McKinney police officer whose contentious attempts to reign in a disturbance at a pool party fell under national scrutiny, has resigned.
McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley described Casebolt’s behavior as “out of control” to reporters on Tuesday afternoon.
“The actions of Eric Casebolt are indefensible,” Conley said.
Casebolt had been placed on administrative leave after video surfaced showing the officer, who was responding to complaints of an out-of-control pool party last Friday, using profanity and behaving particularly aggressive toward the young attendees. Casebolt was also seen in the video wrestling a 14-year-ol girl to the ground and pushing his knee into her back.
Jane Bishkin, an attorney representing Casebolt, confirmed Casebolt’s resignation following a meeting with the McKinney Police department’s internal affairs unit to discuss potential charges against Casebolt.
