Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, had an airport arrival on Saturday more befitting The Beatles, according to an eyewitness. Crowds of photographers and fans went crazy for a glimpse of the former Spice Girl after she landed at Los Angeles International Airport.

"I haven't seen that kind of madness in a while," an eyewitness tells E! News. "It wasn't like it was Michael Jackson or the Beatles. It was just Posh coming home."

Posh's security guards anticipated some sort of commotion. Guards set up barricades and alerted airport police to stand by. But when Posh arrived from Europe in her trench coat, sunglasses, hat and boots, all signs of civility vanished.

The crowd of photographers and fans waiting for Posh became unmanageable.

"The photographers were going crazy," an eyewitness tells E! "She tried to exit the sliding doors to exit the airport and everyone wanted to get in front of her. Security started to push everyone out of the way."

One of Posh's security guards pushed a photographer to the ground. The photographer got back up and pushed back.

Posh, though, kept walking, calm and cool.
