HOUSTON — Houston's mayor said Thursday that the release of a video showing several Houston police officers last March kicking, punching and stomping on a handcuffed teenager could damage the prosecutor's case against four officers.

"We don't want to do anything to jeopardize the prosecution of these police officers," Mayor Annise Parker said Thursday, following a weather news conference at Houston TranStar, the local emergency management center. She said the video's release may cause the trials to be moved out of Harris County.
