Today’s unbelievable yet sadly true story comes out of Miami and has us all scratching out heads. Bodyguard to the stars, Norman Oosterbroek, died after he reportedly was trying to harm residents while naked. The Miami New Times reports that when police arrived, he lunged at them and was tasered, which caused his death soon after. Oosterbroek has often been caught in the background of photos of Beyonce and Jay, providing security for them during public outings.
Here are the details according to the local news:
Just before 11 p.m. this past Monday, Pinecrest police responded to a mansion just off Old Cutler Road to reports that a naked intruder was terrorizing the home’s owners. The cops found a 43-year-old man in the buff, and when he attacked police, they hit him with a Taser. He died soon afterward.
Today, it seems certain the naked man was in fact one of the most famous bodyguards on Earth. Norman Oosterbroek, who made his name protecting Nelson Mandela, founded celebrity bodyguard agency RAD Security and personally watched over Jay Z, Lady Gaga, and other notables. How did he end up nude and fighting police in Pinecrest?
This much is certain, according to Miami-Dade police: The Pinecrest homeowners, Markus and Christiane Jung, called police at 10:45 p.m. Monday to report the naked intruder.
When officers arrived, they found Markus and Oosterbroek violently fighting. During the melee, cops saw Oosterbroek “ingesting an unknown substance.” When officers tried to intervene, Oosterbroek violently resisted, so cops used a Taser, which led to his death.
“We’re still awaiting toxicology reports this morning,” Det. Javier Baez, a MDPD spokesman, tells Riptide.
