Cop Under Investigation

The Miami Beach PD is investigating its own ... after a female cop tried to take a pic of Justin Bieber behind bars ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... while Justin was in jail last week in Miami Beach -- being processed for DUI and resisting arrest -- a patrol officer showed up and made her way to the area where Bieber was being held.

We're told the officer had no business being in the area ... and had no connection to the arrest.

Our sources say ... a Sgt. noticed her pulling out her cell phone, attempting to take a pic of Bieber.  We're told the Sgt. jumped in front of the officer and blocked the shot.

The Sgt. ordered the officer out of the area and she left.

The Sgt. wrote the officer up for "conduct unbecoming an officer" -- which triggered an internal affairs investigation.

We're told her punishment could range from an admonition to termination.

Biebs put a big target on his back when he started letting the Lil's borrow his cars. Now everybody wants a piece of him. His neighbor, the Miami cops, a limo driver... His money will end up in various stranger's pockets, just like what happened to Wacka.

Let's not get crazy TMZ... The cop-chick will just say she was looking at a text - might get a written letter of reprimand... If she took a pick and SOLD it to TMZ she would be in hot water.

Chill out let the cops all have pics to post online. Go to jail you deserve the humiliation. Especially a celeb or athlete.

How many palms has this kid been greasing to stay out of jail??? He LOVES being in the news so why is it a "crime" to be photographed??? He LOVES IT!!! His parents should have taken him to an old fashioned woodshed and spanked his royal behind so he could not sit for days!!! He is a cancer on our country and a despicable example for our young, so, when are we going to kick his behind over the fence to Canada where he belongs??? Why should Canada DUMP their problem on us??? We have enough of our own!!!

Tmz would have paid big bucks for the pic if she would have got it. just like they are paying big bucks for Bieber stories... they re obsessed with Justin. .he should be in Jail still instead of being out on the streets.
