Fake Beckham stirs up LA

A man impersonating David Beckham has made a dozen calls to the LA Sheriff's Department over the last week- offering to host charity events and sign autographs.

The pretend Beckham went on about his charity work, bragging about his 'friend' Tom Cruise, and even offered tickets to watch him sit on the sidelines play for L.A. Galaxy!

Public Information Officer Judy Hammond said she played along with the impersonator, "Just in case it was real. He was just very personable." Awww. A friendly liar.

Officials started to get suspicious of the Beckham knock-off, so they began some questioning. Their suspicions were confirmed when the impostor refused to provide a callback phone number. Police are investigating....
