Former England international, David Beckham has been banned for six months after he was caught using his mobile phone while driving.
A south London court handed Beckham six points on his drivers’ license for the offense
The ex- Manchester United star now faces ban after the court had initially deducted six points on his license for other speeding offenses.
He was driving his Bentley in London’s West End on November 21 when a member of the public spotted him using his phone.
“Instead of looking straight forward, paying attention to the road, he appeared to be looking at his lap,” said prosecutor Matthew Spratt, according to PA.
“He (the witness) says that the defendant was operating a handheld device at knee level. At that moment a photograph was taken.”
“There is no excuse for what took place but his view is as he cannot remember… he’s going to plead guilty and that’s what he’s done,” said Tyrrell.
