  • Jan-Michael Vincent began acting in the late 1960s appearing on television shows including Bonanza Lassie and Gunsmoke

The '80s star actually died back on Feburary 10th, due to cardiac arrest while registered as a patient at a unnamed hospital in North Carolina.

Vincent was a patient at a SC hospital at the time of his death.

Vincent, whose film credits include "Hooper" (opposite Burt Reynolds and Sally Field), "White Line Fever", and "The Mechanic" (opposite Charles Bronsons) passed away February 10 in Asheville, South Carolina, according to reports published Friday.

His other movie roles included Buster and Billie, TV movie The Tribe, surf movie "Big Wednesday, Hooper, and Damnation Alley".

Vincent's career waned after his Airwolf heyday and he quit acting in 2009. In 2002, he starred in the drama "White Boy".

During his time on Airwolf, Vincent was reportedly the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, making over $200,000 an episode.

"Airwolf" was a 1980s television series featuring crime-fighters in an advanced helicopter.

Vincent was also known for his off-screen troubles, including several arrests for domestic violence, drug possession, and alcohol abuse.

In the first incident in 1996, Vincent broke three vertebrae in his neck and sustained a permanent injury to his vocal cords that left him with a permanently raspy voice.

It was revealed during a 2014 interview that his right leg was amputated just below the knee, following an infection.
