The girlfriend of a Gibraltar man who was fatally tased by police says his attack on her, and his appearance on the reality TV show 'Hardcore Pawn' were not what they seemed.

David Kapuscinski was tased twice after failing to comply with police orders. He later died from his injuries. His girlfriend, who chose to remain anonymous, indicated to Detroit's WJBK that the man had been having some sort of nightmare.

The woman also says Kapuscinski's appearance on the Detroit-based reality show 'Hardcore Pawn' was a not real at all. His attempt to intimidate Seth Gold was a setup, and a joke. (Video below)

Reality TV isn't reality? What a shock, right?
