The police officer who appeared to stand by and do nothing as a man harassed a woman wearing a Puerto Rican T-shirt in a Chicago park has resigned.
Mia Irizarry posted a video that went viral, capturing an ugly scene as she was trying to celebrate her 24th birthday peacefully in the Forest Preserves of Cook County in IL in June.
Earlier this week, the parks department confirmed that Trybus was charged with simple assault and that the investigation into the incident was ongoing.
As for Trybus, he was released on bond and has a court appearance scheduled on August 1.
Irizarry (pictured) posted a Facebook Live video as the man, who was drunk, repeatedly came up to her and yelled 'Why is she wearing that s**t?' "You should be wearing United States of America flag", he said.
"I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior", Rosselló tweeted.
The incident in question occurred June 14 in Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve on the Far Northwest Side.
A representative of Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle's office declined comment about the charges. "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America".
Officer Patrick Connor had been placed on desk duty pending an investigation into the matter, and was scheduled to attend a hearing with his bosses on Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Later she says: "Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove ... please officer" as the officer is seen walking away from her.
A second officer eventually arrives to speak to Trybus.
I showed my official ID as a Member of Congress, to which the officer said, "I don't think so", indicating that she thought my ID was a fake and that I couldn't possibly be a Member of Congress.
'People have just as much right to be here as you do, ' she can be heard telling him in the clip.
My wife and I wanted to let her know that we support her and we admire her. As of Thursday morning, the video had be seen 1.5 million times.
More officers then arrive at the scene and a female cop sits Trybus down and threatens to charge him.
