 UPDATE: The police officer caught on tape yanking a 14-year-old bikini-clad girl to the ground and kneeling on her back — has resigned. Eric Casebolt’s attorney made the announcement today.

 Officials in McKinney, Texas are under scrutiny after a cell-phone video surfaced showing an officer pointing his gun at unarmed teenagers.

The footage shows an officer holding down a teen at a community pool party. Many of those in attendance were not part of the community, and McKinney police say that was one reason they were called to the pool.

Moments later, officers from McKinney rolled on to the scene and dispersed the crowds.
