'Airwolf' star Jan-Michael Vincent died after cardiac arrest

'Airwolf' star Jan-Michael Vincent died after cardiac arrest

Vincent actually died on February 10 due to a cardiac arrest at a North Carolina hospital, but his death was not made public until today, according to TMZ.

Vincent battled with alcohol and substance abuse, having been arrested for possession of cocaine and bar brawls various times.

Then came Airwolf, the Donald P. Bellisario-created series that ran for three seasons from 1984-86 on CBS and a fourth on USA Network in 1987. That led to a co-starring role opposite Charles Bronson in Michael Winner's 1972 movie The Mechanic. At one point, Vincent was the highest paid actor on network television, pulling in $200,000 per episode. His most recent film was the 2002 indie White Boy.

After a stint in the California Army National Guard, Vincent made his acting debut in 1967.

The death certificate TMZ is citing said Vincent died from cardiac arrest while at a North Carolina hospital.

Vincent's other notable credits included the 1971 drama Going Home, the 1977 science fiction film Damnation Alley, the following year's stuntmen-focused action-comedy Hooper - in which he starred alongside Burt Reynolds - and the 1983 miniseries The Winds of War.

On the health front, Vincent had a brush with death back in 2012, when an infection almost killed him, ultimately causing his right leg to be amputated, as well as an emergency medical procedure that left his vocal chords permanently damaged, and his voice raspy.

Vincent is survived by his wife and daughter.
