MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers’ investigation of a suburban Dallas incident where a white police officer is seen on video pushing a bikini-clad black teenage girl to the ground has been forwarded to prosecutors.
A spokesman for the Rangers, Sgt. Lonny Haschel, said Monday the agency never comments on its investigations and that the findings have been turned over to the Collin County district attorney’s office.
The county’s first assistant district attorney, Bill Dobiyanski, says the office won’t comment on the investigation’s status or direction.
The June incident involving McKinney Officer Eric Casebolt, who also pulled a gun on other black teens outside a pool party, sparked criticism, protests and eventually Casebolt’s resignation.
