David Beckham banned for six month
The 44-year-old Football legend, David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months and been ordered to pay a £750 fine after admitting using his phone while driving in November 2018.
The former England captain was sentenced at the Bromley Magistrates Court today.
District judge, Catherine Moore who presided over the case gave him six points on his driving licence which already had six points on it from two previous speeding offences.
He appeared and confirmed his name as David Robert Joseph Beckham and gave his address as Holland Park, London.
According to Dailymail, Judge Moore ordered Beckham to stand up and then said: ‘I take into account it was slow moving traffic but that’s no excuse.
‘It still creates a risk to others. I disqualify you for six months and that starts immediately.
‘That’s no driving a car or a motorcycle for a period of six months.’
She warned him that if he drove while disqualified it would be another offence.
He was fined £750 and had to pay prosecution costs of £100.
Matthew Spratt, the prosecuting solicitor, said: ‘There are already six points for two speeding matters.
‘On 21 November last year at 1pm the defendant was seen in a Bentley in slow moving traffic. He was seen by a member of the public looking at his lap.’
