Forney police officer to be questioned over Zimmerman stop - New York News

Forney police officer to be questioned over Zimmerman stop

Posted: Updated:

The City of Forney plans to question the police officer who pulled over George Zimmerman because the officer reportedly took a picture with his personal phone during the stop.

The Forney city manager told FOX4 the officer is not under investigation, but officials are looking into a claim the officer took a picture of Zimmerman's driver's license.

The sound of an iPhone camera ‘click' can be heard on dashcam footage while the officer was in his squad car calling in Zimmerman's driver's license information.

After that you can hear the 'unlock' sound and typing on the keyboard.

The officer, who has not been named publicly, was not on duty Thursday and will be questioned when he returns to work.

Law enforcement experts say it's not uncommon for police officers to take photos while on duty or take photos to send to supervisors when looking for direction on situations.

The officer could be disciplined if any Forney police policies were violated.
