Cops flag down dodgy character

Soccer star, David Beckham was pulled over by British police - because they thought he was a car thief.

The LA Galaxy star was driving through Epping, Essex, in his Range Rover on Wednesday when police flagged him down.

An eye-witness told British newspaper TheSun: "Becks pulled into a hotel. The window came down and in 15 seconds he was gone."

Essex Police confirmed they checked ownership of the car. - Wenn
