MADRID (AP) -- Spanish police say Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was caught speeding at more than 60 mph over the limit.

Police say Benzema has been charged with reckless driving after being caught going 134 mph in a 62 mph zone in Madrid on Feb. 3. Police say the France international faces losing his license and a fine.

In June 2011, Benzema was fined for reckless driving when police caught him racing through the city on the Mediterranean island of Ibiza.

Madrid plays Barcelona on Saturday in the Spanish league before visiting Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday.
