    SAN PEDRO, Calif. (KTLA) -- British film director Tony Scott jumped to his death to his death Sunday afternoon from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, police officials confirmed.

    The director climbed a fence on the south side of the bridge's apex and jumped off without hesitation about 12:30 p.m. He reportedly left a suicide note inside his black Toyota Prius, which was parked in the bridge's eastbound lanes.

    Officers from the LAPD, the CHP and the U.S. Coast Guard worked together to pull Scott's body from the water and bring it to a dock in Wilington, where it was turned over to Los Angeles County coroner's official.

    Scott's directing credits include Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, Man on Fire and Beverly Hills Cop II.

    Weird, he had like eight or ten ongoing projects as a Producer, not like he had a debilitating illness or crippling depression. Bummer.

    If it's San Pedro he could've easily jumped off a Star Trek cruise.

    Seriously, what a career??? He must've been a deeply disturbed dude to off himself with that kind of resume' and life. I just can't comprehend that level of depression to cause that shit with his accomplishments??? LOOK at this shit!!
