Tue 15 Dec 2009 In: International News View at Wayback

A gay porn actor in Florida has died after he was tasered during a police arrest and choked on a bag of marijuana he'd ingested. Died: Andrew Grande Police were called to arrest Andrew Grande, whose screen name was Dustin Michaels, after he allegedly shoved a female friend in a hotel room. Grande, 23, resisted arrest and was tasered. As he was choking, a police officer tried to perform the Hiemlich manoeuvre, but Grande was unconscious by the time an ambulance arrived. A paramedic pulled a large bag of marijuana from his throat, but he was later pronounced dead in hospital. Grande was openly gay and appeared in videos on amateur porn websites. Disturbing video of his arrest was captured on video by a reality TV crew. NBC's local news report appears below.
