Despite being in a wheelchair following his latest DUI wreck, he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after trying to stab his neighbor (September, 1963).
He died either from an overdose of barbiturates or from injuries received in a beating that may have resulted from a drug deal gone bad.
Why he might not be annoying
He was a discovered in a hospital by a casting director who heard him singing to entertain his ailing father.
His father died the same year he made his film debut.
Leonard Maltin said his death 'was a particularly sad end for someone who, as a child, had shown so much easy charm and talent.'
