Norm Oosterbroek, a bodyguard who worked for Jay-Z, Beyonce Knowles, Lady GaGa, Rihanna and Nelson Mandela, died earlier this week after being tasered by the police. Police officers responded to a report from a couple Christine and Markus Jung's residence in Pinecrest, Florida on Monday night, September 2 and saw naked Norm fighting with Markus.

Detective Robin Pinkard of the Miami-Dade Police Department told Radar Online, "According to the victim [Christiane Jung], she heard a noise. When she walked outside of her bedroom, she observed him standing there unclothed." Markus and Norm later were involved in an argument "which escalated to a physical confrontation."

"He was highly violent, uncontrollable, and unstable," police's spokesperson Nancy Perez said. The police noted that Norm "was observed ingesting an unknown substance" during the altercation with Markus. Police officers, who arrived after receiving a report from Christine, subdued Norm with a taser. Norm was transported to a hospital, but he was pronounced dead.

The police are currently investigating the cause of death, including how many times he was charged and the locations. The "white powdery substance" which Norm reportedly ingested was sent to lab for analysis.

Norm was born in South Africa 43 years ago. The 6'5", 280-lb. behemoth worked for Nelson Mandela in his early career. Norm later created his own security firm RAD and was hired by many Hollywood celebrities. A lawyer for Norm's wife April McDaniel said that the family was arranging the funeral.
