For Todd Bridges, the lowest point in his life as a crack and meth addict came in 1992 when he was pulled over by police and contemplated allowing cops to kill him. The 'Diff'rent Strokes' actor shared this story while promoting his autobiography 'Killing Willis' on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC).

"It was the lowest point of my life ... and I really felt that I was just in a frame of mind that I didn't want to live anymore. I got tired of feeling that rejection, tired of feeling that sorrow, tired of feeling that pain that I was going through," Bridges said.

The actor said he toyed with the idea of brandishing a firearm and allowing cops to gun him down. "And I felt that if I just would grab the gun and turn around without even firing a shot and let the cops kill me, then it would take away all the pain," he said. "But ... I heard this voice tell me that it wasn't the right move."
