Film and ad director Tony Scott reportedly takes his own life

Tony Scott, advertising and film director younger brother of Ridley Scott, has apparently committed suicide by leaping to his death from Vincent Thomas Bridge, a roadway spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in LA.

Witnesses said that Scott didn’t hesitate in the act, which entailed mounting a security fence at the bridges highest span.

A family spokesperson said: "I can confirm that Mr. Scott has indeed passed away. The family asks that their privacy be respected at this time."

Scott leaves behind twin sons and his wife, Donna.
