US cop caught on camera wrestling black teen girl to ground at pool party

A US police officer has been suspended after being caught on a video that shows him handcuffing and physically holding down a black teenage girl at a pool party in Texas.

In the video taken by a teenage bystander and posted to YouTube on Saturday, a white police officer in McKinney is seen shouting and ordering some black teens to lie on the ground while telling others to disperse in a neighborhood pool on Friday.

He later is seen grabbing a black teenage girl by the hair and wrestling her to the ground to handcuff her.

The unnamed officer draws his gun and started to chase two other teenagers who appeared to be coming to her aid.

After the two young men fled, the officer returned to the girl, forcing her face into the ground and sitting on her in an effort to prevent her from standing up.
