A Texas woman accused of being part of an initial fight that prompted a harshly criticized police response at a McKinney, Texas, pool party last Friday has been placed on administrative leave by her employer, with the company stating that it does not condone “violence, discrimination or harassment.”
“CoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination or harassment and takes conduct that is inconsistent with our values and expectations very seriously,” the employer, CoreLogic Inc., a major financial data and analytics firm, said in a prepared statement given to The Root Thursday. “As a result of these pending allegations, we have placed the employee in question on administrative leave while further investigations take place.”
A company representative identified the individual placed on administrative leave as Tracey Carver and told The Root that Carver is employed in its tax division and based in Richardson, Texas, which is near McKinney.
Much of the focus on the notorious McKinney pool altercation has been directed at the actions of now-resigned Police Cpl. David Eric Casebolt, who was caught on tape dragging a young teenager to the ground by her hair and pulling his gun on other unarmed teens who were at a pool party.
Police, however, were called in after a fight that was also caught on video, showing an older white woman and a younger black girl struggling and pulling at each other’s hair.
