Officer resigns after video shows him not stepping in when woman in Puerto Rico shirt is harassed

CHICAGO -- A police officer has resigned amid an investigation into his response to a woman who said she was being harassed in a Chicago forest preserve for wearing a shirt with the Puerto Rican flag.

In a now viral-video shot on June 14, an irate approaches Mia Irizarry as she waited for her family at a picnic area in the Forest Preserves of Cook County to celebrate her 24th birthday.

Among other things in the 36-minute video, he tells Irizarry to not wear a T-shirt celebrating Puerto Rico if she's an American citizen -- despite the territory being part of the U.S.

You should be wearing United States of America flag," he said.

On the video, Connor tells Irizarry he didn't think she was in danger.
