Ex-NFL player beats up man who allegedly peeped in daughter's window


Former Detroit Lions defensive back Tony Beckham beat up a man who he said was found masturbating outside his 15-year-old daughter's window. Beckham says the man's trousers were partly down and it looked like he was masturbating as he peered in the window.

"I waited for a second and I looked again", Beckham told WPBF.

Tony Beckham, who played for the Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans, spotted a man outside his Wellington, Florida home as he was walking out to his vehicle around 6:40 a.m. Monday morning, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by the Miami Herald.

According to Palm Beach County Jail records, Cassidy is being held on a $1,500 bond.

"I couldn't believe it".

"I caught him at the apartment over there and we just had a good conversation", Beckham, who played in the National Football League for five seasons between 2002 and 2007, told the station.

That "conversation" left Geoffrey Cassidy with a black eye, bruises and multiple broken bones in his face.

The balance sheet "will be substantially smaller than it is now", though bigger than it was before the crisis, Powell said. At the same time, Powell acknowledged that financial markets are expressing concern about risks.

According to a sheriff's office arrest report, Cassidy took off running when the man yelled out to him - but he only got about 50 yards before being tackled.

Cassidy was taken to Wellington Regional Medical Center to be treated for fractures to his face and eye.

"I'm sorry that it happened to him".

The 48-year-old man was then arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition.

"Maybe I stopped him from doing something more serious to another kid", said Beckham.

After starring at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where he was twice named a Division III All-American, Beckham was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft.
