The police officer who slammed a 14-year-old black girl to the ground and pulled his gun on black teens at a pool party has resigned.
McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley told reporters at a news conference Tuesday that officer Eric Casebolt’s actions were “indefensible.”
“Our policies, our training, our practice do not support his actions,” Conley said.

Conley described Casebolt as being “out of control,” while praising the actions of the 11 other officers on the scene.
“I had 12 officers on the scene and 11 of them… did an incredible job,” Conley said.
Conley confirmed that there had been some other complaints against Casebolt, but Conley could not go into specifics.
The case against one of those who was arrested was dropped. It was not clear which case he was referring to.
