Jay Z's Bodyguard Dies After Being Tasered

By September 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Norman Oosterbroek, the famed bodyguard who worked for Jay Z and Beyonce, has died after being tasered, according to a report by the Miami New Times.

Apparently, authorities were responding to a report of an intruder in another man's home. They found the 43 year-old Oosterbroek naked and when he attacked the cops they tasered him. He died afterwards.

The homeowners, Markus and Christiane Jung, called police around 10:45 p.m. When police arrived, they found Markus and Oosterbroek fighting and allegedly "ingesting an unknown substance." The report goes on to say that police tried to intervene, but 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.
