Jay Z’s bodyguard attacked neighbors naked and on drugs, tasered to death by police
Our chum Vince at FilmDrunk has one downer of a story that I inexplicably felt obligated to share before you started your lovely weekend. Norman Oosterbroek, a.k.a. the Dutch Giant, is a six-foot-five, 280-pound bodyguard for the likes of Jay Z, Lady Gaga and other pop stars. The South African security personnel (he’s on the left in the above photo with Gaga) was found naked and on drugs at his neighbor’s back door on Monday night. There was a struggle. Then, the cops came and tasered him to death.
Sadly, there are few options for police to attempt to restrain a six-foot-five, 280-pound man on drugs. Or, as Vince at FilmDrunk puts it:
Normally I’d say cops need to grow some balls and take down these subjects with their hands like men, but considering Oosterbroek was 280 pounds and once threw fan 10 feet and broke both his legs, I can’t say as I blame them in this case … As soon as I read the name and saw the picture I thought “has to be a South African,” and sure enough, he is. When you combine South Africa and Florida, terrible things happening are inevitable. This is pretty horrific for everyone involved, but I’m just happy it didn’t rain snakes.
Personally, I didn’t get “South African” from the last name Oosterbroek, but then again I wasn’t paying close attention. I did see “Lethal Weapon 2,” though.
About that time Oosterbroek threw a man 10 feet: This was an incident that took place in Washington D.C. about three years ago, when one of Jay-Z’s fans (back then, he used the hyphen) climbed up on stage and deeply regretted the rebellious act moments later. The video of the incident is embedded below, if anything, to show just what Florida police was up against on Monday night. Except naked.
