Police officer caught on camera purposefully tripping high-school students running onto the field to celebrate their team's first soccer state championship. An investigation has been launched after a police officer in uniform was caught tripping and pushing high-school students celebrating their team's first soccer state championship. The video was taken by Rohan Gupta, a student at Vandegrift High School, which shows the uniformed Georgetown police officer kicking a male student causing him to fall before trying to kick a female student. The officer's name has not been released but a police spokesman has confirmed they are investigating the incident. Captain Roland Waits told a local NBC affiliate: 'Georgetown administrators have taken the information and will be forwarding it to internal affairs for review and investigation.' A spokesman for the Georgetown Police Department in Texas said parents began emailing the department early on Sunday morning to alert them of the video.
