The Texas Plano Police Department is investigating its own officers’ handling of an encounter with a Black teenager, detained after walking in the road during Tuesday’s winter storm.

High school senior Rodney Reese said it was a walk home from work that will stay with him forever. It has also led to an internal investigation in the police department, according to the Collin County Chapter of the NAACP.

“I’m working at Walmart, serving the community, and they just come and harass me,” Reese said Monday. “I didn’t need their service. I just wanted to go home.”
