David Beckham is being sued by a photographer who was beaten by one of his bodyguard, reported TMZ.

Emicles Da Mata filed the suit last month in LA Superior Court claiming that on December 7, he suffered serious injuries. Allegedly, the football star attempted to wrestle his camera from him and Beckham's bodyguard beat him repeatedly, grabbed the camera and threw it in a trash can.

There was a police report taken at the scene, however there were no criminal charges filed in the incident.

Da Mata is claiming assault, battery and emotional distress, and is also seeking unspecified damages.
