Monday night, the bodyguard to Jay Z, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and other a-listers Norman Oosterbroek was tasered by police in South Florida and died a few hours later at a local hospital, according to the Miami Herald.
Police said that about 10:45 p.m. on Monday, Oosterbroek appeared at the back door of a neighbor’s home just down the street. Christiane Jung looked outside and saw Oosterbroek staring at her, according to police.
She screamed for her husband, Markus, who confronted Oosterbroek, police said. Oosterbroek allegedly began beating Jung with one hand while ingesting suspected narcotics with the other.
Nancy Perez, spokeswoman for Miami-Dade police, which is investigating the incident said, “He was highly violent, uncontrollable and obviously wasn’t stable. Perez said, it appears Pinecrest officers acted appropriately because, according to witnesses, the suspect was aggressively attacking both the homeowner and police.
Police sources say that Oosterbroek’s elevated body temperature was consistent with someone under the influence of cocaine. Perez also said, a white powdery substance was found on his body.
