Legendary director, Tony Scott, the guy who gave us "Top Gun," "Days of Thunder," "Crimson Tide," "Man on Fire," and "Beverly Hills Cop II," jumped to his death Sunday afternoon according to The Daily Breeze.
He was 68.
Scott climbed a fence on the south side of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. The Daily Breeze reported that the director left a suicide note inside his black Toyota Prius.
Port police officers, the LAPD, and California Highway Patrol joined
city firefighters and the Coast Guard in searching the water for his body. They used sonar equipment to "track the man in the port's murky waters and his body was recovered by a dive team around 4:30 p.m." according to The Daily Breeze.
So long Mr. Tony Scott, thanks for all your fantastic, thoroughly entertaining films!
