Miami-Dade police are investigating an altercation in a Pinecrest home that left a 43-year-old man dead after police tasered him.
Pinecrest police showed up at the home of Markus Jung around 10:45 p.m. Monday, responding to a call about a fight. When officers arrived in the 5800 block of Southwest 132nd Terrace, they found a heavy-set, naked man, Norman Oosterbroek, 43, fighting with the homeowner, Markus Jung, 47. Police say they ordered Oosterbroek, a neighbor of Jung’s, to stop, then attempted to take him into custody.
When he continued to resist, they Tasered him.
Oosterbroek apparently was under the influence of some kind of drug or narcotic and was eating something in the midst of the altercation. Police say they were unsure what that substance was.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived to treat Oosterbroek and he was later transported to Baptist Hospital where he died.
Jung’s wife, Christiane, 47, made the call after hearing the commotion between her husband and Oosterbroek, who lived a block away, in the 5700 block of Southwest 132nd Terrace.
The couple did not suffer any injuries.
Police say they were not sure whether the two men knew each other prior to the incident.
