MCKINNEY (1080 KRLD) - The city of McKinney has reached a settlement with the family of a teenager at the center of a viral video taken at a 2015 pool party. 

A statement from the city of McKinney says all the claims against former Mckinney officer Eric Casebolt and the city will be dismissed. This is almost three years after Casebolt was seen on video in 2015 forcing a teenager onto the ground while breaking up a pool party. 

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but ever since that controversial day McKinney police say they've been working to improve the relationship between officers and the community.

Some residents say they were surprised to even learn of the pool party incident and they're ready now for the next chapter.

Mckinney police are regularly holding events to help connect with the public, and officers say they hope people feel they have a voice in what happens in the city.
