TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - An internal investigation has found a New Jersey state trooper who was providing security for Gov. Chris Christie posed as a member of the media to photograph protesters during a town hall event in March.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says the trooper assumed the role of a photographer to blend in at the event in South River in which about a dozen protesters criticized the way the Christie administration distributed Superstorm Sandy aid.

Hoffman’s spokesman Paul Loriquet tells NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1yRr7LU ) the attorney general concluded posing as a member of the media is not an approved tactic for security details.

The protesters were escorted out.

The trooper was not disciplined.
