Former England Captain and international celebrity, David Beckham, has found himself in a spot of bother this week. According to sources, the footballer was found guilty of using his mobile phone whilst driving.
Admitting fault, Beckham was caught in the West End of London by a passer-by, said to be speaking on his smartphone whilst behind the wheel of a rather fabulous £100,000 Bentley.
Pleading guilty via post, the sporting star agreed to a private hearing. He therefore turned down the option to contest the charge in a public hearing, deciding to take the punishment and admit defeat. This did however occur a mere 8 weeks after he was caught speeding, being let off of that charge on a technicality. Accused of “shirking his responsibility” as a male icon and role model, Beckham had no choice but to hold his hands up on this one.
Scotland Yard said today:
“The Met understands a postal guilty plea was subsequently received by Bromley Magistrates’ Court.”
The dad-of-four now faces 6 points being added to his licence and a £200 fine. But, being worth a staggering £300m, we can’t imagine the £200 fee to be a life-changing issue for him.
