Five stories that have North Texas talking: the former McKinney police officer apologizes for what he did in the viral video; commuter rail in Tarrant County; Dallas ISD debate team heads to a national tournament; and more.
Cpl. Eric Casebolt, the McKinney, Texas, police officer seen on a video forcing a teenage girl to the ground and briefly drawing his gun while attempting to break up a disturbance at a community pool, has resigned. Police Chief Greg Conley made the announcement at a press conference Tuesday evening.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says he doesn't know if President Barack Obama has seen the video of a North Texas pool party where officers detained black teenagers but that the president is aware of news coverage about it.
Days after a dramatic video surfaced of a Texas police officer pulling a gun and screaming at young people at a community pool, the teenage girl he forced to the ground has spoken out. So have local residents who back the police.
