This Monday Scotland Yard reported that 'the Met understands that a postal guilty plea was received by Bromley Magistrates' Court,' in which David Beckham pleaded guilty of using his cell phone while driving his Bentley by Great Portland Street back in 2018.

The reported of the incident came through an anonymous person who informed an officer seeing the ex-captain of the England National team using his cell phone while driving through London's West End on November 21, 2018.

By accepting the plea, the court will announce on Tuesday 19th what the sanction will be, which could face points on his driving license or a fine.

Other moments of traffic regulations violation

Two months prior to the cell phone incident, Beckham was notified for speeding the Bentley. The September indictment was for "shirking his responsibility" as a role model after hiring a famous lawyer who managed to free Beckham.

Another occasion in which Beckham turned to Nick Freeman

The former MLS star turned to the lawyer for the first time in 1999 when he got canceled the option to drive for eight months. On that occasion Freeman argued that Beckham was running from the paparazzi, so they nullified the process and let him drive normally.
