Milwaukee's Bentley dies in car crash
By JAMES H. BURNETT III
jburnett@journalsentinel.com
Posted: Jan. 19, 2005
Artimus Lamont Bentley, a Milwaukee native and actor best known for his role as Hakeem Campbell on the now-canceled UPN sitcom "Moesha," died early Wednesday morning in a single car accident in the Los Angeles area.

Shortly after midnight Tuesday, Bentley's Mercedes-Benz "went up a highway off-ramp at a high rate of speed," said Craig Stevens, senior deputy medical examiner for Ventura County, Calif.

Bentley was ejected from the car after it tore through a chain link fence and rolled several times, Stevens said. He was pronounced dead at 12:23 a.m. Wednesday.

Bentley's former agent, Rob D'Avola, who said he represented the actor for two years until about a month ago, said he'd heard about the death Wednesday morning.

"We're pretty upset. . . . ," D'Avola said. "He was just a wonderful guy."

Bentley, 31, left Milwaukee when he was 13 to seek fame and fortune in Hollywood.

Reggie Brown, a DJ on local radio station WKKV-FM (100.7), said Wednesday that he had had Bentley on his show several times over the years.

"Basically every time I learned he was here, he came on my show," Brown said. "He moved to L.A. to get deeper in the business, but he was always proud to represent Milwaukee."

Brown said that before Bentley was widely known as an actor, he was getting accolades for his upbeat rapping.

Brown hosted Bentley's "Welcome Home" party last year and recalled that the actor was excited about bringing some of his former "Moesha" co-stars to Brew City.

"He was . . . glowing with excitement about all the projects he had in the works," Brown said.

Bentley's acting gigs included parts on the TV shows "The Sentinel," "Family Matters" and "Reasonable Doubts," as well as his recurring role as a sometimes annoying but always lovable neighbor with a voracious appetite on "Moesha," which starred singer-actress Brandy.

He also acted in "Buffalo Soldiers," a made-for-TV movie starring Danny Glover.

Bentley grew up on Milwaukee's north side and attended Webster Middle School. Though he later made his home on the West Coast, he periodically returned to Milwaukee to host events for his charitable organization, The Lamont Bentley Foundation Inc. The foundation distributed funds to several area non-profit groups, including Strive Media Institute and the Pentecostal Church School of Wisconsin.

John P. Carlson, an attorney for whose firm Bentley recorded ads and who represented Bentley following a minor scuffle at a 1999 charity event, remembered the actor as "a nice, pleasant guy."

"I was shocked. I heard about the incident earlier today. He wasn't pompous or have that big-star type attitude," Carlson said.

Nick Carter of the Journal Sentinel staff contributed to this report.
