The case is set to be heard at Lavender Hill Magistrates Court in Wandsworth in south west London next Tuesday.

If found guilty Becks could potentially face a large fine or even disqualification from driving.

News of the incident comes after David enjoyed a family holiday with Victoria, 44, and their children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and Harper, 7, in Bali earlier this month.

During the vacation the clan shared lots of enviable pictures of what they were getting up to, including this adorable shot of Becks and the kids having fun in the water.
