David Beckham Gets Six-Month Driving Ban For Using Phone Behind The Wheel

David Beckham has been banned from driving in Britain for six months and was fined about $1,200 after admitting to using his phone while behind the wheel.

He was busted cruising through central London in his Bentley in November last year while using his phone.

The crime got him six points on his license, which in the U.K. brings a driver's license suspension.
