Prior to this, the police officer tied at least two guys using plastic tie straps.

The incident happened on Friday last week, in a pool party somewhere in McKinney, Texas.

Netizens raised questions about racial bias since the police officers who appeared in the video seem to single out black teens in a multi-race crowd.
