FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – A white Texas police officer has been suspended without pay for 10 days, but will not be fired, after an internal investigation of a cellphone video in which he is seen wrestling a black mother and her daughter to the ground and arresting them.

The police chief in Fort Worth announced the discipline at a news conference today. The video has been viewed millions of times on Facebook. An attorney for the woman had demanded that the officer be fired.
