Police Academy and football star Bubba Smith died at his Baldwin Hills home yesterday. He was 66. Police said there was nothing suspicious about Smith’s passing.
Smith was a defensive star with the Baltimore Colts, the Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers. He won a Superbowl with the Colts in 1971. But this Fishie’s generation best knew him as Hightower in the Police Academy series. He had Mahoney’s back.
