MCKINNEY, Texas – A police officer in McKinney, Texas has been placed on administrative leave after a video surfaced showing one cop pull a gun on a crowd of teens at a pool party.

Police say they were dispatched to a community pool after a caller said several teenagers were in the area who did not live there or have permission to be there and were refusing to leave.

Later, police say they received calls that some of the teens were fighting.

According to the McKinney Police Department Facebook page, multiple officers responded to the scene, and the situation was eventually brought under control.

However, video that surfaced after the incident has raised some concerns.

Video shows one officer aggressively handcuffing teens and wrestling a 14-year-old girl in a bathing suit to the ground.  The girl was later released without charge.

The video also shows the same officer drawing his weapon on a group of teens.

Police say the officer in the video has since been placed on leave pending the outcome of an investigation.
