An Illinois man accused of harassing a woman for wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt at a Chicago-area park was charged Thursday with state hate crimes, authorities said.
In a video posted on social media, Trybus can be seen berating the woman at the Caldwell Woods forest preserve in Chicago.
"The 10-year veteran officer resigned late Wednesday, according to Cook County Forest Preserve District officials, rather than fight to keep his badge over the encounter that has been recorded and viewed millions of times, drawing worldwide scorn for Connor's inaction", the outlet reported.
In the video, Trybus can be heard telling Izizarry "you should not be wearing that shirt in the United States of America".

Timothy Trybus, 62, of Des Plaines now is charged with two felony counts of committing a hate crime in addition to misdemeanor counts of assault and disorderly conduct he already faced. He had previously been charged with misdemeanor assault for the incident.
Irizarry says Puerto Rico is part of the United States and the man approaches her multiple times.
Tamara Cummings, general counsel for the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council said about the deplorable incident: "The video does not look good, but anybody who is a football fan knows that the video does not tell the whole story. Are you a citizen?"

"I can honestly say that I feared for my safety", said Irizarry, who was at the site celebrating her 24th birthday. He also questions her about whether she was an American citizen. "Can you please grab him?" "Then you should not be wearing that", he continued.
"It was extremely surreal to think that someone whose job is to protect and serve could just completely walk away..." she said at a park in a Chicago neighborhood with a large Puerto Rican population, in her first public comments about the incident. He started yelling at her, asking among other things, if she is a US citizen. We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background.
The video of the exchange sparked outrage, and even Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rosselló, weighed in and called it "appalling" and he said "a Puerto Rican woman was brutally harassed by a bigot while an officer did not interfere".
Meanwhile, the Forest Preserves issued its own apology for what happened.
