A man hired to protect celebrities is now dead after being subdued by police during a brawl. 43-year-old Norman Oosterbroek worked as a bodyguard for Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Kanye West and Drake before dying late Monday night.
According to the death investigation report, obtained by HipHollywood, cops received a call from a Florida home around 10:45 p.m. with reports of a naked intruder terrorizing the home owners. That intruder was reportedly Norman Oosterbroek, who once protected Nelson Mandela before launching his own celebrity bodyguard agency.
A verbal confrontation took place which escalated to a physical confrontation. During the melee, Oosterbroek was “observed ingesting an unknown substance,” and that’s when police were called.
When officers arrived, they found one of the home owners and Oosterbroek fighting. When officers tried to breakup the fight, the security guru allegedly resisted, leading cops to use a Taser, which led to his death.
“It’s possible that he may have been under some type of a narcotics. Again, he was observed swallowing, ingesting some kind of substance, unknown substance that is,” Miami-Dade Police spokesman Det. Javier Baez said of Oosterbroek.
Police say they’re awaiting an autopsy report to determine the man’s exact cause of death.
