Someone might want to clue Motley Crue's Tommy Lee and Poison's Bret Michaels in on some advice: if you're going to shoot guns with law enforcement officials, it's probably not the best idea to to take pictures of the event.

Unfortunately, it's a bit late for those words of wisdom, as Lee and Michaels are now the subject of an investigation related to the questionable legalities of some extra-curricular activities that they engaged in while on tour with this summer's Motley Crue/Poison trek.

While in North Carolina, the pair got together with local law officials at the Rowan County Peace Officers Association to take on some target practice under the guidance of a former officer, later posing for photographs with the officers.

As WSOC TV reports, their activities could be illegal if either Lee or Michaels have a criminal record that would prohibit them from using guns.

Additionally, Sheriff Kevin Auten has concerns that the pictures could possibly represent or demonstrate bad judgment -- actions that are criminal activities and against department policies.

The situation remains under investigation, with no planned or announced timetable for a possible resolution. The current Crue/Poison tour runs through Aug. 17 in Chula Vista, Calif.
