Pool incident investigation turned over to Texas Rangers

🕐 1 min read

MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — Prosecutors have called in the Texas Rangers to investigate an incident in which a white police officer Is seen on video pushing a bikini-clad black teenage girl to the ground and brandishing his gun at other black teens.

The June 5 incident involving McKinney police Officer Eric Casebolt sparked criticism, protests and eventually Casebolt’s resignation from the McKinney Police Department.

In a statement Monday, Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis said he has “full confidence” in the McKinney Police Department’s ability to investigate the incident. However, he said he believes an independent investigation will “add an important layer of transparency to the process.”

Groups that have organized rallies to protest Casebolt’s actions have called for criminal charges against him.
