David Beckhams’ Bodyguard Bust-Up Caught on Camera
This morning Celebuzz reported that David and Victoria Beckham’s security team got into a fracas with a member of the paparazzi on Sunday. Here are the photos from the brawl.
Beckham, 33, initially confronted a photographer who had been following his car in Beverly Hills on Sunday. Wife Victoria, 34, was in the vehicle with him.
As E! reports it, an eyewitness says the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer star went up to the car of the cameraman and tried to get the driver to come out. Upon the paparazzo’s refusal, Beckham’s bodyguard went to the passenger’s side and there was a flurry of punches.
“They started fighting right in the street in front of the police station,” a witness marveled. “Once the bodyguards and the paparazzi started fighting, David ran back to the car and he and Victoria drove off…. The cops finally came and broke it up.”
The pummelled shutterbug looks to have received quite a beatdown.
Two members of Beckham’s security detail were questioned by police. The celebrity athlete’s rep issued the following statement: “Yes, an incident did occur. However, there will be no comment as this is now in the hands of the lawyers.”
E! notes that an ambulance was called to the scene, but no one involved would allow treatment.
As well, no charges have been filed in the scuffle yet.
