Pool Party Cop Resigns

The police officer whose video-recorded actions at a North Texas pool party have drawn national attention and a protest nearly 1,000-strong has resigned from the police force.

The police officer whose video-recorded actions at a North Texas pool party have drawn national attention and a protest nearly 1,000-strong has resigned from the police force.

Officer David Eric Casebolt resigned Tuesday from the McKinney Police Department after almost 10 years on the force.

His resignation was confirmed by his attorney, Jane Bishkin of Dallas and comes after calls for his termination resonated across the Dallas-area city of McKinney and beyond via social media.

A viral video showed him pushing a bikini-clad girl to the ground on Friday and brandishing his gun at other black teens after he and other officers responded to complaints about the pool party at a community-owned McKinney swimming pool.

McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley had placed the 41-year-old former Texas state trooper on administrative leave after the incident.

Bishkin declined to say where Casebolt is now and said he had received death threats. The attorney said she would release more information at a news conference Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a police union on Tuesday afternoon defended how officers handled the pool party disturbance.

The incident, about 30 miles (50 kms) north of Dallas, is the latest to draw attention to the issue of police use of force in the United States, especially against minorities.

The McKinney Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) said the conduct of police in the incident had nothing to do with race.
