David Beckham to face hearing over allegedly using mobile phone in car
David Beckham will face a court hearing over allegedly using a mobile phone while driving.
A member of the public alerted the Metropolitan Police to the alleged offence, said to have taken place on November 21 in west London.
A London Magistrates' courts spokesman said the former England footballer, 43, received a single justice procedure notice in the post, but had not yet been charged.
A hearing will take place at Bromley Magistrates' Court on March 19.
The Government says a person issued with such a notice does not necessarily need to attend court.
The Metropolitan Police said: "An allegation was made by a member of the public to the Met that on 21 November 2018 they saw a 43-year-old man on his mobile phone while driving his car in the area of Great Portland Street.
"The 43-year-old man has been sent a notice of intended prosecution."
A spokeswoman for Beckham, a father-of-four, could not be reached for comment.
