David Beckham -- 'Speeding Really Bad' Before Crash

5/30/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Beckham was driving like a MANIAC before swerving into another lane at a dangerously high speed ... and rear-ending a stalled vehicle earlier this month -- this according to multiple 911 calls.

One caller -- who claims she was driving behind David for several miles-- reported that David was "driving recklessly" and "speeding really bad" before slamming into the stalled car on May 6.

Another caller claims David was "definitely speeding" -- pulling in and out of the carpool lane ... "breaking a couple traffic laws."

As we previously reported, Beckham rear-ended another car with his Black Escalade ... on one of the busiest highways in L.A. -- and the other driver had to be taken to the hospital.

Beckham -- whose son Brooklyn was in the car with him at the time -- has not been arrested or cited.

A spokesman for Beckham tells us, "As unfortunate as accidents are, David was not cited by the police at the scene for any violations."

It's the same law, actually, but it's only enforced on the poor and working class people. The rich people buy the best lawyers, experts, witnesses, jury consultants, etc. and "support" the right politicians' and judges' campaigns and policeman's "other balls" (apologies to Monty Python) so they'll get off or get off absurdly lightly. Any working class Joe would have been charged with reckless driving among other offenses.

Beckham feels he is entitled to drive and behave like a maniac. He's right about that. We just saw the proof. And there's zero accountability. No police officers and no assistant district attorneys are ever punished by the public for not pressing charges against celebrities.

Omg..if there were several 911 calls made with several witnesses then why is this guy still allowed to drive? He should have his license suspended! And that-with his kid in the car-is child endangerment! What parent would drive crazy with their child in the car?! This man is nuts.

This jerk should have been cited. Anyone else would have been cited for speeding and rear ending another vehicle. He probably paid off the LAPD like most celebrities do. The LAPD are totally corrupt. The fact that his son was in the car makes him a complete sleazeball.

People who don't agree with what Beckham did shouldn't buy any of the merchandise or services that he or the soccer team he plays for promotes. According to many witnesses, Beckham almost killed a guy, driving way over the speed limit, changing lanes recklessly and rear ending a stalled car on the highway. Let him play before empty stadiums.

LOL! TMZ was ASHAMED and EMBARRASED that their initial report about Beckham hitting a guy went wrong and nobody cared about it because turned out Beckham did NOTHING WRONG and it was just plain ACCIDENT, so they HAVE to humiliate him in any which way by CREATING these phonecalls, which is not even real, WITHOUT ANY PROOF TO SHOW THAT IT WAS BECKHAM who was speeding, which didn't prove at all that it was him who was speeding like they said. Plus, who called 911 just to tell them, "I just wanna let you know..etc, etc.."? That is NOT a report, that is telling a gossip!! And both callers didn't even see or know who was the driver. They didn't even know WHICH SUV they were talking about! Plus, that woman said Beckham was speeding all the way from LAX. Wasn't he on the way to (or back from) training at the time with his son, and Victoria didn't even fly to anywhere??! TMZ is telling us lies, and shame on you here who believe them!! The fact that the police didn't even sue or sited or arrest on any wrong doing means that he didn't do any wrong and that's that! This incident happened nearly A MONTH ago, and only NOW that this phonecalls are leaking?? Says much, isn't it?

The guy who got taken to the hospital FOR PRECAUTION ONLY didn't even hurt in a bit, he was just complaining that he's got a neck pain after the police came, and his car even got hit just A BIT! It was not a serious accident at all, not even a serious hit, but the car got hit by Beckham alright. And there was not just Beckham's car and that guy's car, but also other TWO cars involved in the "accident". That IS the story, nothing more! TMZ just making up a story out of nothing!

I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360... and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, EatBids.com

Oh Yeah, I'm sure he was SO to blame, but as a star, he is not held to the same standards as the lowly unfamous - who must ADHERE to the letter of the law...

If you're rich and famous, you do NOT have to be accountable for hurting the poor and unfamous...
