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.

I wonder how many people's lives this guy has ruined by just being alive.

She was probably going to sell it or put it on Facebook.

Really? Big deal. I wish pictures of him in jail would get out. I bet he was crying like a little girl. Maybe total humiliation might make him realize how he's throwing everything away. It might just save his life and lives of other kids who think he's cool and want to be just like him. Otherwise.....this guy is headed for certain death in the not so distant future. What a shame.

I'm not trying to sound like a feminist here, but I notice that TMZ will go out of their way in stories to point out a cop is female even when it isn't relevant to the story. They don't do this with male cops unless there is an actual reason to mention it.

TMZ why do you have to saturate your site with a particular story for weeks and weeks? <?b> TMZ saturated this site all about Lindsay Lohan for months, then it was Kardashians and Kris Humphries forever, now they are obsessed and saturating their site with this immature thug, Bieber. TMZ needs to keep a balance, not saturate one story.

Oh and don't forget when TMZ saturated their site with Michael Jackson forever too.

Where is the balance? Why the obsessed saturation on just one celeb on here all the time?

She had no business doing that, she needs to be terminated. Can't stand the Beaver but that doesn't excuse her behavior.

I have to start this with a statement. I am not a Bieber fan. I am a yo woman who reads everything. That said. If the Miami Beach cops fire someone for trying to take a photo, but don't fire the cop who filed a false report, they are looking for a scapegoat and diversion for their corruption

Crooked police in every station and every city. Theres only a few good ones. Truth. She thought she was going to get that million dollar picture and flee to an island. Thats a good officer who blocked the photo and reported her.

Just My Opinion    

I guess this person wanted to make some fast cash the easy way. I wonder what a picture would be worth if that person got him taking a wizz in the corner of his cell, or sitting on his royal thorn?
