(McKinney, TX)--The attorney for Eric Casebolt on Wednesday explained his side of the incident in Texas that cost the 1992 Richmond High School graduate his job. Casebolt resigned after video captured him pulling a gun and holding a black teenage girl down at a swimming pool. The attorney said that Casebolt had just been on two emotional calls before the pool incident. In the first, a black man shot and killed himself in front of his family. "Eric also spent a considerable amount of time consoling the man's grieving widow," the attorney said. In the second incident, he helped talk a suicidal teen down from a roof. "The nature of these two suicide calls took an emotional toll on Eric Casebolt," the attorney added. Casebolt has lots of family in Richmond. Some have taken to social media to defend him.
