    Follow his team or his fashion choices, but David Beckham apparently doesn't want you following his car.

    After being pursued by paparazzi today in Beverly Hills, the soccer stud confronted a photographer, with a fight breaking out moments later between one of the soccer star's bodyguards and the shutterbug.

    According to an eyewitness, Beckham went up to the car and tried to get the driver to come out. When the driver declined, Beckham's bodyguard went to the passenger's side and punches began flying.

    The scuffle did not go unnoticed by the authorities. "They started fighting right in the street in front of the police station," an eyewitness tells E! News.

    "Once the bodyguards and the paparazzi started fighting, David ran back to the car and he and Victoria drove off...The cops finally came and broke it up."

    Two of the bodyguards were later questioned by police. One of the bodyguards, who had been scratched in the fight, declined to comment. A rep for Beckham tells E! News, "Yes, an incident did occur. However, there will be no comment as this is now in the hands of the lawyers."

    Photographers on the scene showed police a video of the fight, which police then confiscated as evidence.

    "We took a report at the scene, but no one was taken into custody or cited," said Beverly Hills Police Department Sgt. Gregg Mader. "We'll review what we have to see if further action needs to be taken."

    "They just can't do this," said the photog involved in the fight. "They put me on the floor, they got my camera and they threw it in the trash can. They can't do this to us. "

    An ambulance was called to the scene, but all of those involved in the fracas refused treatment.
