The parents of a teenage boy who was pinned to the ground last summer by an off-duty Chicago police officer vowed to “continue to fight” Friday after a judge found Sgt. Micheal Vitellaro not guilty of battery and official misconduct charges.

Video of the confrontation between the officer and the teen went viral last August when Vitellaro was seen holding the boy to the ground with his knee and accusing him of stealing his son’s bike.
