Officer investigated for Bieber photo try
MIAMI (AP) — A South Florida officer is under investigation for attempting to take a photograph of Justin Bieber while he was in custody on DUI and other charges.
Miami Beach police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez confirmed Friday 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 was not released.
Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 during what police described as an illegal street drag race. In addition to driving under the influence, the 19-year-old pop singer was charged with resisting arrest and having an invalid driver’s license. He pleaded not guilty.
Police said the officer attempted to photograph Bieber while he was in a temporary holding cell, and a higher-ranking officer intervened to stop the attempt.
