A British father-of-two has died after he was allegedly attacked by a group of bouncers in Spain before being ‘knelt on by police officers as he begged for his life’. 

Tobias White-Sansom, 35, from Nottingham, succumbed to his injuries after spending five days in hospital following the incident on the notorious Magaluf strip in Majorca. 

His family said they are now battling to have his body flown home for further examination as they paid tribute to the ‘well-loved’ father, who leaves behind two daughters – four-year-old Maisie and 11-month-old Poppy.

An autopsy by Spanish authorities is set to determine the cause of death while homicide detectives from the Guardia Civil lead the investigation.  

The force claims they attended the scene following reports of an assault on a bouncer and that a suspect had to be restrained before being hospitalised and later dying. 

However Tobias’ millionaire brother Maximillian White, dubbed ‘the king of medical marijuana’ thanks to his hugely successful medical cannabis firm, claims his sibling had returned to a VIP area of the Boomerang club to retrieve his T-shirt, when he was told that it had been put away.

It was then, according witnesses who have spoken to Mr White, that Tobias went to the bar to get a drink with his girlfriend before a security guard ‘grabbed him from behind.’ 

Mr White, who lives in Dubai but owns a holiday home in Majorca, told the Mirror that his brother began to resist because ‘he didn’t know who it was.’ 

He claimed his brother was attacked by the bouncers, adding: ‘This ordeal went on for about 12 minutes, according to what the lawyers told me from getting witness statements.’

The grief-stricken entrepreneur described chaotic scenes which saw 50 to 60 people gather as some reportedly screamed: ‘You’re going to kill him’, as his brother ‘pleaded for his life.’ 

He said Tobias went into cardiac arrest and that he was given a tranquiliser, before police allegedly began to ‘beat tourists and people watching’ before ordering them to ‘disperse while breaking their telephones.’ 

Mr White paid tribute to his brother, describing his death as a ‘pain that will never go away.’ 

He said he will ‘buy the Magaluf strip’ and ‘close it down permanently’ if his brother’s body is not returned to the UK. 

A Guardia Civil spokesperson said: ‘Guardia Civil can confirm there is research ongoing about the facts.

‘Guardia Civil received an emergency call about a physical assault with a header by an intoxicated person to the nightclub bouncer.

‘Upon the arrival of the Guardia Civil police, this man was violent and police reduced him to be assisted by medical services. He was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

‘There, once while he was being assisted, he was arrested for a crime of injury.’  

The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said in a statement: ‘We are supporting the family of a British man who has died in Mallorca and are in contact with the local authorities.’

A spokesman for the Civil Guard previously confirmed on Tuesday morning Mr White had died in hospital on Sunday.

He said: ‘We are investigating the death of a British man who died at Son Llatzer Hospital on Sunday five days after being admitted to intensive care following an incident at a club in Magaluf.’

He also confirmed Mr White had been under police guard in hospital ahead of an anticipated court appearance on suspicion of assault if he had survived.

The spokesman said: ‘Officers responded to an incident at a nightclub in Magaluf in the early hours of last Tuesday morning where a client had allegedly head-butted a bouncer after he asked him to put his top on.

‘That client, a well-built British man, was still acting very aggressively when officers arrived and he had to be restrained using appropriate force by four or five responders for his own safety and that of others around him.

‘He was harming himself, hitting his head against the floor, biting and acting very violently.’

A well-placed source said: ‘Medics also attended the nightclub as part of the emergency response and had to sedate the man arrested before he was taken to hospital.

‘He had a cut to his lip from the incident involving the bouncer but wasn’t in hospital because of any physical injuries as far as the authorities were concerned.

‘A witness told the police he took cocaine on repeated occasions that night.’

No-one from Son Llatzer Hospital was immediately available for comment late Tuesday night.

Boomerang Nightclub has been contacted for comment.

Mr White’s brother Maximillian, originally from Nottingham, has made a fortune by selling medicinal marijuana to wholesalers across the world.

The 41-year-old is now said to live in Dubai although he also owns a luxury property in Majorca.

He became Britain’s youngest landlord at the age of 17. He snapped up 40 hectares of land in the Portuguese Algarve to build Europe’s biggest medical cannabis farm.
