What a Twit -- Al Roker Takes Pics of Jurors

5/28/2009 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al Roker just pulled a big no-no -- according to a court official we spoke with in New York.

Al -- who is on jury duty -- took a pic in the jury assembly room in a NYC courtroom. The pic shows some of the prospective jurors -- Al posted it on his Twitter page. The official told us no one is allowed to take such pics -- but Al's rep just told us Mr. Roker got permission from a court official.

We just called the court official back and told them that Al got the OK. The official said if Al really did get permission to take the pic, the person who approved it "was ill-advised." The official said it's not OK, but if Al got bogus advice, it's not his fault.

Al Roker: Click to watchAl just posted the following comment on his Twitter page:

"I'm not breaking laws...just trying to share the experience of jury duty. One that I think is important and everyone should take part in ... So everyone is clear, I am NOT taking pictures in the courtroom. I am in the jury lounge. So folks need to lighten up."

Al your a dumbass, its common sense, there is supposed to be a sense of annonymity when it comes to jury duty, he is a fat bastard, and why does he have a twitter page?? he should be arrested for being an idiot and shamed by him issuing an apology on his lame morning show, to all the other jurors. go back to doing the weather fatboy

I highly doubt anyone gave him the imprimatur to take pictures of a potential jury pool. Shame on him!
