Well, this is a little scary.

During an interview to promote his new book, David Beckham recalled an incident that occurred back in 1998.

"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,'" the retired soccer star told BBC sports presenter Jake Humphrey during Wednesday's Q&A session and global book signing, Digital Spy reports.

He continued, "So I looked out the window and there was this guy standing there just looking up at me in my bedroom. 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.'"

Mind you, we can't exactly fault him for wanting to catch a glimpse of Victoria Beckham's significant other, but obviously it sounds like this fella crossed the line.

As for Beckham's new book, simply titled David Beckham, it hits shelves today.

The tome features images from the 38-year-old's sprawling, globe-trotting career, which included stints with U.K.'s Manchester United, Spain's Real Madrid, Los Angeles' L.A. Galaxy and France's Paris St.-Germain.

"David Beckham is, without a doubt, the most universally recognized and popular sports person on the planet," U.K-based Headline Publishing Group, which published the book, said in a statement. "This gorgeous book will be a superb way for his millions of fans around the world to celebrate David's remarkable achievements within football."
