AceShowbiz - David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months after he was caught using his mobile phone while driving.
The former England soccer captain, 43, had previously pleaded guilty to using the device while driving in Great Portland Street in central London on November 21.
According to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, the sporting hero attended Bromley Magistrates' Court in the British capital on Thursday, May 09 for sentencing, and was disqualified from driving for six months. He was also fined $973 (£750) and ordered to pay $228 (£175) in court costs and fees.
Just two months before the offence, Beckham was slammed by road safety campaigners after he avoided prosecution on a speeding charge on technical grounds, as he was notified of the charge after the statutory 14 day limit.
