The McKinney, Texas Pool Party incident last weekend that resulted in a viral video showing a seemingly unhinged police officer throwing a 15-year-old African-American girl to the ground and sitting on her was, according to witnesses, ignited by white adults who used racial slurs and provoked a physical confrontation with the teens who attended the affair.
Now, one woman, seen in a separate video in a struggle with a group of African-American teens, even striking one, has been allegedly identified as an employee of a Bank of America subcontractor named Tracey Carver-Allbritton.
The woman has reportedly now been placed in administrative leave by the subcontractor, CoreLogic, a data firm that provides financial data on individuals seeking mortgage loans from Bank of America.
The woman’s identity was revealed by the social action group Dallas Communities Organizing For Change, who posted what the group said was a picture of Carver-Allbritton as well as an image of a woman who is allegedly the same person involved in a physical altercation with the teens at the McKinney pool party.

The text of tweet above, for those whose browsers cannot display the message, reads, “@bankofamerica Is this your employee Tracey Carver-Allbritton attacking a child & using racial slurs?”
The woman’s identity has not been independently confirmed since being posted by the Dallas For Change group.
The video of the woman in the altercation can be seen above. The short video clip does not show how the altercation began, but starts with another white woman apparently grappling with a teenage black girl.
The woman reported to be Tracey Carver-Allbritton then inserts herself into the fight, striking the teen girl multiple times.
After Bank of America said it conducted an investigation, discovering that the woman actually worked for CoreLogic, that company then issued a statement of its own.
“CoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination or harassment and takes conduct that is inconsistent with our values and expectations very seriously,” the company said Tuesday. “As a result of these pending allegations, we have placed the employee in question on administrative leave while further investigations take place.”
Also on Tuesday, McKinney police announced that they had dropped charges against the one person arrested in the pool party incident, 18-year-old Adrian Martin.
In the video of the incident — which can be accessed at this link — showing now-resigned police Corporal Eric Casebolt wrestling the 15-year-old girl, Martin approaches Casebolt as he sits on the girl — and Casebolt pulls his gun on the man.
Martin had been charged with evading arrest and interfering with police in relation to the McKinney pool party incident — charges that Martin’s attorney called “ridiculous.”
