Posted By on Mon, Apr 21, 2014 at 4:33 PM

Rohan Gupta recorded some high school students storm a football field after the girl's Vandegrift High School soccer team won their first state championship ever over the weekend. While the 15-year-old high school student was filming, Georgetown officer George Bermudez was caught tripping one male, missed a female on the field and shoved male off the field. The officer has been put on paid leave and internal affairs is reviewing the case, according to Statesman.

Agency spokesman Roland Waits told Statesman that "Bermudez’s actions were not appropriate measures for a crowd control situation."
