Tony Scott, 68, directed “Top Gun” and “Beverly Hills Cop II.” He jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro.

His body was pulled out of the water by Los Angeles Port Police, who were the first on the scene.

Several witnesses told police they saw Scott get out of his Toyota Prius, which was parked on the bridge, about 12:30 p.m. Then he scaled an 8- to 10-foot fence and jumped off without any hesitation, law enforcement sources said.
