A Miami Beach police officer is under investigation for attempting to take a photograph of Justin Bieber while he was in custody on DUI and other charges.
Sgt. Bobby Hernandez confirmed Friday that a female officer is being investigated for possible conduct unbecoming an officer.
Punishments can range from a verbal reprimand to termination. The officer’s name wasn’t released.
Justin Bieber, 19, was arrested January 23 during what police describe as an illegal street drag race. In addition to DUI, Justin Bieber was charged with resisting arrest and having an invalid driver’s license. The singer has pleaded not guilty.
Police say the officer attempted to photograph Justin Bieber while he was in a temporary holding cell, and a higher-ranking officer intervened to stop the attempt.
