Police were notified when several juveniles at a pool were there without permission and reportedly did not live in the area.
In the video, juveniles are seen running from police with several teenagers handcuffed after apparently failing to comply with police. The officer in question is seen drawing his weapon after throwing a young woman in a bathing suit to the ground and using profanity.
In a statement, the McKinney Police Department said:
"On June 5, 2015 at approximately 7:15 p.m., officers from the McKinney Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool. The initial call came in as a disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave. McKinney Police received several additional calls related to this incident advising that juveniles were now actively fighting.
First responding officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. Nine additional units responded to the scene. Officers were eventually able to gain control of the situation.
McKinney Police later learned of a video that was taken at the scene by an unknown party. This video has raised concerns that are being investigated by the McKinney Police Department. At this time, one of the responding officers has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation."
A formal investigation has been started regarding the officer in question.
