The simple sound an iPhone makes when it takes a photo has landed one Texas police officer in hot water, after he allegedly snapped a pic during George Zimmerman’s traffic stop on Sunday.

In a video of the stop released by law enforcement, about 30 seconds in you can hear the camera “shutter,” followed by the “unlock” sound and typing.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the officer is currently under investigation after dash cam footage revealed he took an iPhone picture during the stop.

It’s unclear what the officer took a photo of or if he sent it to anyone, but he could be trouble if he took a picture of Mr. Zimmerman’s driver’s license for personal use, TMZ said.
