London, Dec.20 (ANI): Cops stopped England footballer David Beckham on Wednesday because they thought he was a car thief.
Officers were stunned when Becks, 32, lowered the window to shake hands, when they flagged the soccer idols Range Rover down.
The two cops thought the 4×4 had been nicked after a spate of car thefts in Epping, Essex, reports The Sun.
Simon Krueger, a witness, said: “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. (ANI)
