David Beckham pleads not guilty for speeding offence
The former Manchester United star, who played 115 times for his country, was caught driving the luxury car at 59 miles (94km) per hour in a 40mph zone in London in January
Former England football captain David Beckham yesterday pleaded not guilty on a technicality to a speeding offence in a loaned Bentley, and will face trial later this month.
The former Manchester United star, who played 115 times for his country, was caught driving the luxury car at 59 miles (94km) per hour in a 40mph zone in London in January. But his lawyer Nick Freeman, argued at a London court that the notice of prosecution was served a day after the 14-day limit.
"There's no issue in terms of driving or speed limit," Freeman told the judge. "I'm not disputing it [notice] wasn't served. I'm saying it was served out of time." Beckham, 43, was not at the hearing, and Freeman said his client was unlikely to appear at the trial starting September 27.
