AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - The Texas police officer seen in a viral video throwing a teenage girl to the ground has resigned, the McKinney police chief said on Tuesday.

Police Corporal Eric Casebolt was "out of control" in his response to a pool party disturbance last week in the city north of Dallas that was caught on video. He resigned on his own, McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley told reporters.
