MIAMI (REUTERS) - A female Miami Beach police officer is under investigation for improperly attempting to take a photograph of teenage pop singer Justin Bieber after his arrest last week for alleged driving under the influence.

The officer is alleged to have attempted to photograph Bieber while he was in a temporary holding facility, according to police spokesman, Bobby Hernandez.

The woman faces possible disciplinary action for conduct unbecoming an officer, he added. Her name is being withheld.

Bieber, 19, was arrested on January 23 after police said he was caught drag racing with friends at the wheel of a Lamborghini in a residential area of Miami Beach.
