Reggae singer Smiley Culture dies
2011-03-16 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 40 Comments

English reggae singer Smiley Culture has died after reportedly stabbing himself in the heart following his arrest at his home in Surrey. He was 48.

Police delivered an arrest warrant to the singer - real name David Emmanuel - on Wednesday morning.

The arresting officers accepted his offer of a cup of tea before being taken into custody, during which time Emmanual is said to have stabbed himself in the heart with a carving knife. He had been due to sit trial next week on charges of conspiracy to supply cocaine.

Emmanuel's biggest hit was 1984's cult classic 'Police Officer,' which reached number 12 in the UK charts.

my buddy got arrested for selling cocaine and the police who raided his house let him finish his joint before he showed them where the coke was and taking him to the station. never hurts to have manners.

Damn Brits and their tea. I must admit though, that's a pretty gangsta way to kill yourself. Make the cops look like tards at the same time. RIP
