Ken Osmond, better known as Eddie Haskell on the Leave it to Beaver TV series has checked into the heavenly precinct. That’s right, Osmond who died last week was an LAPD motorcycle cop.

He joined the department in 1970 after his acting career sputtered. In 1980 Officer Osmond and his partner were paroling the Ramparts Division when they jumped a “Rollin Stolen.” After a short chase the car crashed and Osmond was shot 3 times. His vest and belt buckle prevented his death on that fateful evening.

The shooter caught a few years in the penal system and was arrested for a double murder in 1989.

Thanks Ken for your character in Leave it to Beaver and, more importantly, your service as an LAPD cop. Rest easy brother!

Peace
