Naked Man Tasered and Killed in Pinecrest Was Famed Bodyguard to Jay Z, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga

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.

NBC6 was the first to report that Oosterbroek was a celebrity bodyguard, based on an anonymous source. But most other media sources, including the Miami Herald, have held off on that news. Baez says he also can't confirm Oosterbroek's identity.

However, at least two Dutch websites are reporting this morning that Oosterbroek's company, RAD, confirmed to a radio station in the Netherlands that the man killed in Miami was indeed the company's founder. (Riptide also sent a message to RAD's Dutch headquarters; we'll update this post when we hear back.)

If true, it's a stunningly strange end to Oosterbroek's tale. He founded RAD Security in his homeland after his successful stint with Mandela. According to a Variety profile in 2011, the firm grew into "one of the largest global music celebrity protection firms."

RAD's roster at the time included Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Drake, and Kanye West.

"It's a different age now," one of Oosterbroek's partners, James Andrea, told Variety of their formula for success. "You have to be more in tune with technology; it's much harder, especially with cameras and phones. There's a lot you have to be on top of."

Oosterbroek personally led details for Lady Gaga often enough that he earned his own page on the fan site Gagapedia, featuring candid shots of the burly, bearded bodyguard shepherding the tiny pop star to safety.

look up the so called victims they are no where to be found, i believe these mothafuckaz was chasing him out his goddamm house and shoved that shyt in his mouth while tasering and seducing him, thats my story or he was doped up unknowingly this shit is obvious, but the case is closed a dead man has no say or opinion. the "broadcast" story is what is to be believed anything else like what im sayin is another conspiracy but best believe if my voice was louder and i had a mass of people who listen to me like ohh say MLK JFK fckn Biggie n TuPac, some strange stories would most likely come out about me like drug abuse false dr visits, fake beefs relationship drama, which the news will portray as things that lead ultimately to my own self righteous death #bullshit at its finest element, there trying to make public schools w the same morals as private schools, y are private schools appraised soo much!!!?whose behind this rlly?....im going off subject im out!!!!

I never want to be tazered. ever.. Police. chill out with that shit. I know Pinecrest cops are bored as fuck constantly and probably had a hard-on when they saw that situation unfold. Assholes

What the hell was he doing invading somebody else's house. He should have been gunned down by the homeowners themselves.

If he was naked and fighting, from where did he pul out this unknown substance to ingest?

The strange part is, what was he taking and why? He also was working for a lot of famous music celebrities who are tied to the Illuminati, if you believe in that sort of thing.

Pinecrest Police are among the most polite and careful in Miami Dade.... This guy must have been on a binge.. Well done!

Maybe taxpayers should get a hold of some of these taser-loving cops, shock them to an inch of their lives and drop their fuming carcasses on both city and county halls. This is bullshit!! I get a shooting, but tasering borders into legal torture... That beach cop? I'm pretty sure he got a hard-on as he was electrocuting that kid.

Seriously I know the house I sold it ( I am a Realtor) to the previous owners some 15 years ago. It is far from a mansion. Such exaggeration. It is a typical contemporary style home in a gated community not even on the water, etc.

Maybe we should throw a net over them, like in the movies. Obviously these batteries are too potent...or better yet lets just send them an invitation in the mail to turn themselves in.

Maybe tasers shouldn't be used anymore... The cops might as well just pop these suckers in the skull with a .40

Interesting that a founder of a major European security firm dies like this. It's not a very honorable death. Seems like a hit. With all the shit going on these days ...I wonder what he knew. Wait...no I don't.

Yes wydra, I know... Like that kid on the beach, he also "showed medical duress." Please, keep the legalese for yourselves.

I say he shouldnt have been on drugs, naked OR intruding on someone's home. People need to stop being upset at the cops, when in fact, he was the one breaking the law. Excited delirium? Well then maybe cops should start doing dru tests on people BEFORE tasering them right??? WRONG. People need to STOP DOING DRUGS!!!!!!

another taser death. till when? to the above commentator: the cops are trained in martial arts and other techniques to reduce people without killing them or beating them with clubs. sounds like the police are not undergoing any training anymore.

Viera, unless u reside in Gables, Aventura or Broward county, cops show too little-too late. Wanna see a Miami cop show up, right away?! Call reporting actions perpetrated by blacks or CentroAmericans! That's the only way they show in force, and pissed-off too, because they have to leave their 'roids session behind and undo their hair.

Mr. Lopez & Mr. Ramirez this is more than likely another case of excited delirium…where there was a drug ingested that raised the core body temperature of the individual that died. Therefore the taser only exacerbated the drug issue. (ex. Bath salts……Ecstasy….cocaine…etc….) So please do some research on excited delirium before you begin your uneducated accusations like the media does. After your research you will see that even a simple fight with someone whose body temperature is elavated can kill them. Thanks for reading.

It's not the cops fault that the taser killed him. Maybe cops should go back to beating people with clubs!

sorry guys but i'm defending the police here, this guy had invaded a home and was terrorizing a family, while under the influence of something. This guy had it coming for him. Your all so fucking stupid. i hope when you need help the cops don't show up at all.

Phil Ramirez

so that's the new law enforcement trend?! Frying hard-working tax payers, just because?!?! I'll stay tuned 'til they tase a Jewish lawyer or a Cuban politician's relative... It'll be interesting!!
