Porn Actor Died After Being Tased Twice by Cops, Star Marland Anderson's Autopsy is Pending

Marland Anderson aka Sledge Hammer was only 39 years old.

Celebrity Crime Beat LA - Hollywood porn star Marland Anderson has died after an encounter with police in Los Angeles.

The actor, who went by his onscreen name Sledge Hammer, was tasered by police earlier this month after they were dispatched for a disturbance.

An autopsy is pending, reports City News Service.

According to LA Weekly, the wild scene that sadly ended with his death all started with a phone call to police from his porn star sweetheart.

The report adds:

"Anderson's girlfriend, performer Alexa Cruz, told Xbiz she called 911 that Sunday (April 8) to report that he was having a severe anxiety attack.

She said Anderson had a knife and she wanted to prevent him from hurting himself. In a struggle for the knife she said she cut her finger accidentally."

The police arrived and here is how the LA Times reports what happened next:

"(Anderson) was then handcuffed to a gurney by police for transportation in an ambulance. Once inside the ambulance, Neiman said, Anderson tried to stand up, but acted with such force that he broke the gurney free from a floor lock and broke the handcuff.

To restrain Anderson, an officer then used a Taser but it failed to stop the agitated actor, Neiman said. Several officers eventually managed to restrain Anderson, Neiman said. He was taken to a hospital, where he died Friday morning, Neiman said."

He was only 39 years old.
