Soccer star David Beckham was held up for three hours at the Los Angeles airport as his bags were searched.

The 34-year-old footballer, who flew in from London on Thursday, was fretting and fuming when customs at the airport pulled his 12 holdalls apart, reported Sun online.

"David wasn't pleased. He ranted at airport security. He even asked his handlers to do something but there was nothing they could do," said a source.

The previous night he played for England against Belarus at Wembley and then went out to celebrate with his friend Dave Gardner at London's Nobu and Bungalow 8 until 3am.

Being an English footballer, Beckham has been staying in the US for quite sometime now with his wife former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and two sons. He plays for the American Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy and the England national team.
