Real Madrid footballer David Beckham is awfully bent, after the armor-plated BMW X5 he bought to thwart would-be kidnappers of son Brooklyn was stolen. The extra-strength SUV, valued at around $175,000, was being used by an assistant, who had parked at an upscale Madrid hotel, but who forgot to set the tracking system. (British-English pun ahead.) Authorities are trying to discover whether the theft was an inside yob.
