Police Academy actor Bubba Smith has been found dead at his home in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman Ed Winter said Bubba, 66, was found at his Baldwin Hills property.

Mr Winter said he did not know the circumstances nor the cause of death.

Police spokesman Richard French said the death did not appear to be suspicious.

Bubba, a former American football star, spent five seasons with the Baltimore Colts and two seasons each with Oakland and Houston.

But the 6ft 7in player found a second career as an actor and was best known for his role as softly-spoken police officer Moses Hightower in the Police Academy films.

Aww, I know of him from Police Academy - really sad to see that he's passed :(

You can make mistakes in life but it is how you deal with them that makes you a better person or a worse person.
