One of the students, wearing hot pink capri pants, is apparently injured by the officer’s actions. The student can be seen in the video below hobbling off the field after being taken down by the officer.

A spokesman for the Georgetown Police Department told KXAN that parents emailed them the video beginning early on Sunday morning.

On Sunday evening, the Georgetown Police Department issued the following statement: “Georgetown administrators have taken the information and will be forwarding it to internal affairs for review and investigation.”

Raw Story contacted the Georgetown Police Department and was told that more information regarding the investigation — including the officer’s identity — would be made available later today. This story will be updated as soon as such information is available.
