Former Detroit Lions player reportedly beat up a man he caught masturbating while looking through his daughter's window

WELLINGTON, FL — A former Detroit Lions player reportedly beat up a man he caught masturbating while looking through his daughter’s window, according to reports.

Geoffrey Cassidy, 48, was arrested Monday in Wellington, Florida on a charge of lewd and lascivious exhibition, WDIV reported. Cassidy’s arrest photo shows him with a black eye and a cut on his lip.

News outlets report the girl’s father caught Cassidy crouched in some bushes by the window with his hands in his pants.

He reportedly yelled at Cassidy, who ran away. But the father, identified by WPBF as former NFL defensive back Tony Beckham, chased after Cassidy and tackled him to the ground.

A neighbor called 911.

The girl told the deputy she had just gotten out of the shower and was getting dressed when Cassidy was looking through the window, WDIV reported. Cassidy was taken to Wellington Regional Medical Center to be treated for fractures to his face and eye.

He reportedly denied looking in the window, claiming he was in the neighborhood because his car had broken down and he was waiting for it to cool down.

Beckham was a cornerback who played for the Detroit Lions in 2007 and spent five seasons in the NFL.
