Reports suggested that onlookers saw a woman hanging from the 14th floor of a building above a car park where a party to promote the film was due to be held.
However it soon became apparent that she was not linked to the film – leading those on the ground to plead with her not to jump.
Police attending the scene later confirmed that woman had no connection to the film or the event.
‘The call came in as a jumper,’ an officer from the San Diego police department told the Los Angeles Times.
‘There was something thrown from the balcony and she was crying. After some negotiations, she was taken into custody.’
