McKinney Police Officer Who Brutally Detained 15-Year-Old Girl Resigns

Officer Eric Casebolt resigned from the McKinney police force Tuesday, three days after a video of him violently throwing an unarmed 15-year-old girl to the ground was published on YouTube.

Casebolt’s attorney, Jane Bishkin, confirmed the news to WFAA Tuesday afternoon. Casebolt was suspended on Sunday, one day after 15-year-old Brandon Brooks posted a seven-minute long video of the officer screaming at and arresting children at the McKinney community pool in Texas.
