The ‘Police Academy’ films star, Charles ‘Bubba’ Smith has died at his home in the Baldwin Hills suburb of Los Angeles. The former NFL lineman who has won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Colts and had a second career acting in several ‘Police Academy’ film has died at age 66.

The Los Angeles police spokesman Officer Gregory Baek has told that Smith’s body was found on Wednesday at his home. Smith is believed to have died of natural causes but the coroner’s office has not made a final determination.

Charles Smith has played for Michigan State University and has entered the National Football League when he was drafted by the Baltimore Colts in 1967. In addition to winning a Super Bowl with the Colts in 1971, Smith has also played with Oakland Raiders and the Houston Oilers before he retired in 1976. He has been selected twice to the Pro Bowl and has played in 111 regular-season games.

Soon after his retirement from the NFL, he has appeared in small television roles just before he gained the fame in the ‘Police Academy’ for playing Moses Hightower who is a police recruit who was as soft-spoken as he was physically imposing.
