Sunday, 11 Jul 2010 08:51 AM

The son of legendary New York City mobster Mickey Spillane has died after tumbling out the window of his sixth-floor apartment.

Police say actor and playwright Robert Spillane fell from his midtown Manhattan apartment Saturday morning. No criminality was suspected in his death.

Spillane's uncle, James McManus, calls it a "terribly sad accident."

McManus says Spillane was leaning against a screen when it gave way and he fell through the open window. He says one of Spillane's arms was in a sling.

Police could not confirm any details.

The 45-year-old had roles on TV's "Rescue Me" and "Law & Order." He wrote an Off-Broadway play about a cross-dressing gangster.

His father was gunned down in 1977.
