Norman Oosterbroek died after being Tasered. Credited for protecting stars like Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Lady Gaga, Oosterbroek, 42, was very good at his job and was one of the most requested bodyguards in the biz. On Sept. 7, MSN reported the news, which was somewhat strange to begin with.
"Police were called when a naked Oosterbroek... entered a mansion uninvited on his street Tuesday. Ooesterbroek and his family were apparently leasing a home in the same neighborhood. Homeowner Christiane Jung, 47, found Oosterbroek first and his intrusion eventually led to a violent confrontation between Oosterbroek and her husband, Markus Jung," MSN reported.
Norman Oosterbroek was confronted by police but he became aggressive and police used a Taser to take him into custody. Oosterbroek was unable to handle the shock, however, and he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly after the incident.
It is still unclear why Oosterbroek went into that house and why he was naked. The report makes mention of him drinking an unknown substance. A police spokesperson suggests that narcotics could have played a role in this bizarre event. A full investigation is under way at this time.
Norman Oosterbroek saw a lot of things throughout his career and it's possible that he had a substance abuse problem. Even still, it's sad for many of those who put their trust in him to believe that he's gone.
