Well, I guess it’s not a big a shock, and probably a great relief to many that the Texas police officer who hit the internet for handling a teen pool party heinously, has resigned.
Officer David Eric Casebolt’s actions were “indefensible,” though he was not pressured to quit, McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said at a press conference after the officer submitted his resignation.
The 41-year-old former Texas state trooper and 10-year veteran of the McKinney force was put on administrative leave, but after much public pressure (the footage on the internet went viral and received over 10 million views), his lawyer confirmed Tuesday he had quit the force.
Conley said a review of the video showed that “our policies, our training and our practices do not support his actions.” He went on to say that Casebolt “…came into the call out of control and the video showed he was out of control during the incident.”
Here’s the crazy video. Nutso.
