A man in Florida was arrested after receiving a beating from a former National Football League player who allegedly caught him masturbating outside his daughter's window.

Heading out to his vehicle early Monday morning, a Wellington man was startled to see someone in the bushes next to the bedroom window where his daughters were. His daughter had just gotten out of the shower and was dressing.

"I waited for a second and I looked again", Beckham told the West Palm Beach-area station. According to TMZ, he is still being held in Palm Beach County Jail on $1,500 bond.

"I couldn't believe it", he said. He reported seeing the man with his trousers undone and fondling himself.

Police arrested 48-year-old Geoffrey Cassidy for the indecent act Monday.

When police arrived, a bloodied Cassidy claimed that his auto had broken down and that he was sitting in the bushes outside Beckham's residence waiting for the engine to 'cool down'.
