David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months for texting at the wheel
David Beckham has been given a six-month ban from driving for texting at the wheel of his $130,000 Bentley.
The 43-year-old former England captain had pleaded guilty by post and was subsequently given six points on his license today at Bromley Magistrates' Court, resulting in a ban.
Beckham was also fined £750 ($975) for the driving offense.
David Beckham arrived at court on driving charges:
Earlier today, the father-of-four was photographed stepping out of a black car in a dark grey suit, before walking into the court building.
He was charged in April after he was reportedly spotted using his phone while driving in Great Portland Street last November.
The case was initially supposed to take place last month but was postponed until today when Beckham confirmed his attendance.
A court staff member had said the case was listed on the court system as 'to attend for disqualification'. adding: "Although it is listed as 'to attend for disqualification' we don't know if he has enough points for disqualification. We don't know if he does have enough points to be classed as a totter."
