MCKINNEY, Texas – A Texas police officer has resigned after video from a pool party went viral.
On Wednesday afternoon, the former officer decided to hold a news conference to discuss the incident that was captured on video earlier this week.
Police say they were dispatched to a community pool after a caller said several teenagers were in the area who did not live there or have permission to be there and were refusing to leave.
Later, police say they received calls that some of the teens were fighting.
According to the McKinney Police Department Facebook page, multiple officers responded to the scene, and the situation was eventually brought under control.
However, video that surfaced after the incident has raised some concerns.
As police arrived, teenagers were said to be running from the area.
Video shows one officer aggressively handcuffing teens and wrestling a 15-year-old girl in a bathing suit to the ground. The girl was later released without charge.
The video also shows the same officer drawing his weapon on a group of teens.
One person was arrested for evading arrest and interference with public duties.
