    An ex-NFL player says he had to use his skills on the field to take down a peeping Tom looking at his 14-year-old daughter.

    Now, Palm Beach County deputies have the suspect behind bars.

    Tony Beckham, who used to play football for the Tennessee Titans, says he spotted Geoffrey Cassidy Monday morning as he was getting ready to leave for work.

    "I hear a rumble in my bushes," Beckham said.

    Court documents say his daughter was in the room getting dressed for school.

    "I screamed, 'Hey what are you doing?! Then he took off running," Beckham said.

    That's when Beckham jumped into action, running after Cassidy and holding him down until deputies arrived to arrest Cassidy.

    Beckham says his daughters are traumatized.

    "They was crying, they’re scared," he said. "They all slept in the room with me last night."

    Cassidy is facing charges of lewd behavior.

    According to court documents, he told deputies that he's a transient.

    Cassidy's next court appearance is set for Feb. 13 with his bond set at $1,500.
