Patrick Conner quit the police department of the Forest Preserves of Cook County, according to a statement from the department.
"We are further addressing aspects of this incident", the statement reads.
A video went viral of 24-year-old Mia Irizarry being harassed at a park in Cook County, Illinois earlier this week. "He basically got in my face, damn near nearly touched me", Irizarry is heard saying to the camera during the incident. The video shows him approaching her, asking why she is wearing a v-neck Puerto Rican flag shirt with the words "Puerto Rico" written below the neckline.
"You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that".
In the footage, the man can be seen approaching Irizarry saying: "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America". Officer Connor was caught on camera last month, seemingly standing by as another man scolded Mia Irizarry for wearing a Puerto Rico flag T-shirt.
Later she says: "Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove ... please officer" as the officer is seen walking away from her.
"Officer, officer, I feel highly uncomfortable", Irizarry tells Connor, who does not appear to respond to her as he is addressed, and can be seen turning his back and walking toward his police auto.
Timothy Trybus, 62, is facing two charges of felony hate crimes, which are enhancements to the previous charge of misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct.
The female officer then interviews Irizzary, who tells her that the first officer on the scene stood "watching the whole thing happen". Trybus was later charged with disorderly conduct and assault.
One of the other responding officers tells Trybus that he can't be harassing people, adding that people have just as much right to be in the park as he does. "Our officers made the arrest today and we will continue to support the prosecution of this matter".

Forest Preserve District Police Chief Kelvin Pope said Connor "should've stepped in, and he should've done something".

"The investigation is ongoing and the officer involved has been assigned to desk duty pending the outcome".
"We don't know what was happening outside the video; we don't know what was going on inside his (Conner's) head at the time", the attorney, Tamara Cummings, said Thursday.
The video shows Trybus continuing to confront Irizarry and her friends for about 10 minutes before additional police officers arrive and eventually arrest him.
