Viral WATCH: Texas Cop Slams Teen Girl to Ground, Pulls Gun at Pool Party
Legal experts Jonna Spilbor and Heather Hansen reacted today to a viral video that shows a tense confrontation between a Texas police officer and a group of teens at a pool party.
The incident reportedly started Friday when there were confrontations between local residents, who were at the pool, and a group of teens who had shown up.
According to some reports, there were racial remarks made to the black teenagers at the McKinney neighborhood pool, north of Dallas.
A group of officers responded, but the actions of Cpl. Eric Casebolt have drawn criticism for being excessive.
At one point, Casebolt throws a teenage girl to the ground and pulls out his gun when two males approach him.
Casebolt is now on administrative leave while the police department investigates.
