Director of 'Top Gun' on drugs when he killed self

LOS ANGELES--"Top Gun" director Tony Scott had traces of anti-depressant and sleep-inducing drugs in his body when he killed himself by jumping from a California bridge, coroners said Monday.

Scott did not have any life-threatening conditions including cancer, the Los Angeles County Coroner said.

Hollywood was left stunned when the 68-year-old, whose action thriller work also included "Days of Thunder," died in August after jumping from the Vincent Thomas Bridge over Los Angeles Harbor.

The LA County coroner's office said autopsy results showed therapeutic levels of the antidepressant mirtazapine, trade name Remeron, and the sleep aid zopiclone, trade name Lunesta, in his system.
