Zimmerman Traffic Stop

Cop Under Investigation

for Sneaky iPhone Pic

It's the most recognizable iPhone sound on the planet -- the camera shutter -- and now it's biting one Texas cop in the ass ... after he apparently snapped a sneaky iPhone photo during the George Zimmerman traffic stop this weekend.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the officer who pulled Zimmerman over for speeding on Sunday is currently under investigation after dash cam footage revealed he took an iPhone picture during the stop ... at least that's the way it sounds.

You can plainly hear the telltale sound in the video -- followed by the "unlock" sound and typing iPhone keys.  You'll hear it 29 seconds into the video.

It's unclear what photo the officer snapped -- or if he sent it to anyone -- but if he took a pic of Zimmerman's driver's license for personal use ... he could be in trouble.

We're told the officer in question is off duty today, and investigators are currently trying to get in touch with him.

At least he wasn't taking Weiner pics like that idiot in New York. Leave the poor cop alone. Everything is fine, no big drama here. Don't get the Martin supporters riled up again or they will start rioting and destroying cities like Oakland again...snicker....

It's funny how all the racists are calling Georgie an American hero simply because he shot and killed an innocent 17 year young black man, but before he became a household name they were yelling send him back and close the borders. How ****ing gullible you all are. Pathetic.
