A porn actor known as Sledge Hammer on screen has died, several days after being shocked with a stun gun during a struggle with Los Angeles police officers.

Marland Anderson died at a hospital Friday morning, the L.A. Times reports.

Lt. Andrew Neiman said Anderson's girlfriend called police last Sunday and said that he tried to hurt himself with a knife. Neiman said he had suffered a knife injury.

Paramedics and officers who responded to the attempted suicide call handcuffed him to a gurney and took him into an ambulance.

Neiman said that once inside the ambulance, Anderson broke from the handcuff and gurney and had to be restrained by a stun gun.
