If soccer star David Beckham ever decides to quit the game that has made him a global sensation, maybe he can apply for a security guard position.

Earlier this week, Beckham helped to apprehend a fan who had run onto the field at Old Trafford in Manchester, England.

Beckham was lining up for a corner kick when the fan, who looked to be quite young, invaded the pitch and began circling about.

While Beckham had the chance to put the hurt on the law-breaker, he instead captured him with a big-brotherly bear hug, before turning him over to security.

Other field invaders haven't been so lucky. Read on to see the video of Beckham being gentle, and then other videos of fans who made the wrong choice to enter onto the field of play, only to be met with extreme prejudice.
