David Beckham Called Cops Over Bedroom Intruder
Luckily, he wasn't nude at the time...
David Beckham has revealed how he came face to face with a man outside his bedroom window in the early hours of the morning, forcing him to call the cops.
The incident took place shortly after his red card nightmare at the 1998 World Cup.
Becks, who recently retired from the game, recalled the scary moment during a Q&A session and global book signing yesterday.
According to Digital Spy, he told sports presenter Jake Humphrey: "It was shortly after '98 and I was in my house, three or four o'clock in the morning, and the dogs were just going mad, barking, running at the fence, and I'm thinking, 'Oh my goodness'.
"So I looked out the window and there was this guy stood there just looking up at me in my bedroom."
The former England star added: "I had clothes on thankfully, so he wasn't just standing there for that. He just stood there and continued and I thought, 'I should phone the police at this point'."
Beckham also discussed his family life, and revealed that he and Victoria had always wanted to have children "pretty fast".
The footballer said: "[Family are] the best. It's what kind of makes everything real for you. I love doing what I do, but there's nothing better than going home and sitting with your little girl and your boys... Those things are so special."
During the Q&A session, which coincided with the release of David's new book, the ex-Man Utd player also took questions from Facebook fans.
Asked what his next tattoo might be, he replied: "I don't know yet. I had one pretty recently. I've got quite a few so I think it's going to start slowing down at some point."
Humphrey pointed out that he was "probably running out of room", to which Becks quipped: "Yeah, I am. You sound like my mum."
Becks refused to be drawn on former boss Sir Alex Ferguson's comments about his career choices, saying: "I'm not going to sit here and be negative about the man that gave me the chance to play for my boyhood team.
"He believed in me... he gave me the chance to live my dream."
