La Galaxy Says It Regrets Beckham Halftime Incident

Posted: Updated:

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles Galaxy coach and general manager Bruce Arena says the team regrets the exchange between David Beckham and a fan at halftime of its exhibition against AC Milan.

Arena's comments Monday come a day after Beckham was the target of frequent booing and derisive banners held up by one of the team's support groups during Beckham's first home game since returning from a five-month loan to AC Milan.

At halftime of Sunday's 2-2 tie, Beckham walked toward the L.A. Riot Squad section and motioned to a fan to come closer. The man jumped down from the seats and was arrested by police for trespassing.

Arena said in a statement issued by the team that it's important for fans to be able to voice their opinions but they must do it in an appropriate manner.

Arena says the team has a good relationship with the L.A. Riot Squad and has reached out to set up a meeting with the group. He says the group has issued a lifetime ban on the fan that left the stands.
