Watch This Jerk Cop Trip Students Celebrating State Title

What an a-hole.

According to the Statesman, when the Vandegrift High School girls soccer team won the Texas Class 4A championship game on Saturday, they not only won the school’s first team title, but also became the first area school to “win a championship in a sport that has been sanctioned by the University Interscholastic League” since 1983.

Naturally, the Vandegrift student fan base was pretty pumped after witnessing something that hadn’t happened in 31 years, and most of them made their way onto the field to celebrate with the team.

We say most of them, because one poor bastard didn’t make it all the way out there after being tripped by a police officer intentionally at the eight-second mark of this video.

Oh, but Georgetown police officer George Bermudez wasn’t satisfied with just taking down a kid whose only crime was wearing a white visor and pink shorts combo. He also attempted to trip a high school girl before bear-hugging another student and shoving another girl at the very end of the video.

Luckily, there wasn’t a kid in a wheelchair he could have pushed over, as well.

Bermudez was named Georgetown’s “Officer of the Year” last year, sadly. We’re unsure what he did to earn that honor, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was for using a Taser gun on an elderly woman who didn’t use the crosswalk.
