Airwolf star Jan-Michael Vincent dies aged 74 after suffering cardiac arrest

Actor Jan Michael Vincent, known for starring in the television series "Airwolf", has died.

Although several online biographies list Vincent's birth year as 1944, the death certificate released by authorities in North Carolina has it listed as 1945.

TMZ said no autopsy was performed on Vincent, who was cremated. His last onscreen appearance was in the 2002 thriller White Boy.

Vincent's credits also included "The Undefeated", "Hooper", "Gunsmoke", "Bite the Bandit" and the 1972 movie "The Mechanic".

Vincent's career waned after his Airwolf heyday and he retired from acting in 2009.

He was reportedly paid $200,000 for each episode.

In the first win at Cameron Indoor Stadium, UNC shot an abysmally low 10 percent from behind the arc. Carolina, meanwhile, has won six straight games and has lost just once since January 13.

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.

During his life, Vincent struggled with drugs and alcohol and spent time in rehab facilities.

The actor was involved in a auto accident in 1996 in California which resulted in a neck injury which damaged his vocal cords.

He is survived by his third wife, Patricia Ann Christ, and a daughter from his first marriage.

Notably, Vincent previously endured a bad infection that caused him to have to have his right leg amputated in 2012.
