I have found begleiten (to accompany) conjugated two different ways.
begleiten, begleitete, begleitet
While Collins Dictionary (Online) suggests:
begleiten, beglitt, begleitet

Only the forms begleitete, begleitet are correct.
There is however the verb gleiten (to slide). So one can imagine an ad hoc formation of a transitive verb begleiten in analogy to befahren or begehen, as in
*Ich begleite das Eis.
The past tense would then be:
*Ich beglitt das Eis.
This makes me smile and is certainly not standard.
