A Texas police officer seen tripping kids on video has been suspended following his actions. The officer's stunt was recorded Saturday after a soccer game between Georgetown High School and Vandegrift High School.

A report out this week revealed that Georgetown police officer, George Bermudez, was filmed tripping kids rushing to the field after Vandegrift High School’s win. He's also a school resource officer for Georgetown High School. His actions have raised some concern.

“After personally watching the videos, the actions of my officer are very concerning to me as well,” Georgetown Police Chief, Wayne Nero, said.

Bermudez has been with Georgetown police since 2005 and was recognized for his outstanding work last year.

School Board President Pam Waggoner said after the officer tripping kids incident occurred, some parents were angry. In fact, one kid was seen limping off.

“I’m sure he was just trying to keep the players safe; it was just his method in which he chose to do it that’s questionable,” Waggoner said.

One student, Gray Goolsb, rushed the field as soon as the soccer game was finished. He recalled Bermudez pulling him off a pile of dog manure and instructed him to go back to the stands. The boy said he hope the officer doesn't lose his job over this because everyone was just having fun and Bermudez was doing his job.
