Updated: Friday, June 6 2014, 03:59 PM CDT

Fri. 3:30 p.m. UPDATE: Georgetown Police Department Chief Wayne Nero says Officer Bermudez has accepted the 40 day suspension without pay with no right of appeal. His suspension is immediately effective.



A Georgetown police officer has been suspended for 40 days without pay for tripping students at a soccer game in April.

Officer George Bermudez was given the notice on Thursday. He has five days to accept the offer or he will be indefinitely suspended, according to a release by the Georgetown Police Department.

The incident happened during the State UIL Soccer Championship game on April 19.

Cell phone video captured students from Vandegrift High School in Leander storming the field, celebrating their team's victory. But the video also captures a student's fall -- tripped by Officer Bermudez.

Then Officer Bermudez appears to try and trip another student but misses, then grabs another student and tells them to get off the field.
