Nasty Hispanic cop

A TEXAN police officer has created headlines across the US after tripping and bear-hugging students as they tried to celebrate a girl’s high school soccer victory.

George Bermudez – last year’s Georgetown Police Officer of the Year – is under investigation for misconduct after footage emerged of him kicking one student as they ran onto the field, before attempting to trip a girl, tackling a third student and pushing a fourth.

"It wasn’t like they were rowdy. They were just celebrating," parent Lori Digesualda said. "These kids were excited, they wanted to celebrate," added another parent, Karen Morse.

"It was so exciting. In fact, it was so excited, I jumped up and almost blacked out and hit the woman in front of me.

"All the kids are jumping over, friends, boyfriends, everybody’s just running. Then I see this police officer just sticking out his leg."

Bermudez has been placed on administrative leave with an internal affairs investigation ongoing.

"We’ve been inundated all day with not only media but concerned parents, not only from Central Texas/Georgetown but actually across the nation," said Georgetown Police Captain Roland Waits.

"Naturally this is very alarming and concerning to us."

The Vandegrift High School girl’s soccer team claimed the 4A title after beating Wylie East, sparking the celebrations.

It’s the first time any soccer program from the Austin area has won the state championship.
