Texas police officer seen on video slamming a teen girl to the ground has resigned
In a press conference Tuesday afternoon, McKinney, Texas Chief of Police Greg Conley called Casebolt "out of control."
Shortly after video of the Friday incident went viral, Casebolt was placed on administrative leave.
The video shows Casebolt and several other officers arriving to a residential neighborhood in McKinney, Texas on a call of some sort of altercation between a teenager and two adults.
Video of the incident appears to show the incident quickly escalating as Casebolt chased teenagers, most of whom are black, and ordering many of them to the ground.
The part of the video that has gained national attention is when Casebolt detains a 15-year-old girl who was wearing a bikini. Casebolt can be seen sitting on her back as she lay face down in the grass.
FOX-4 news says it's not clear how Casebolt's resignation, which was apparently tendered on his own volition, would affect an ongoing internal investigation into the incident. That investigation is expected to wrap up as early as the end of the week.
