CARSON, Calif. (Thursday, July 5, 2012) – LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham was given a one-game suspension and fined an undisclosed amount today by the MLS Disciplinary Committee for his confrontational and provocative behavior during and immediately following the Galaxy’s 4-3 loss at San Jose on June 30. The Committee considered his conduct unacceptable and detrimental to the League’s public image. Beckham will serve his suspension on Sunday afternoon when the Galaxy take on the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park.

Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena was also fined an undisclosed amount by the Disciplinary Committee for public criticism of the officials following the loss to San Jose on June 30.
