L.A. Chase Ends in Death

2/10/2009 2:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A wild chase on the L.A. freeways that lasted for hours last night ended with the driver shooting himself -- and during much of the drama, the media believed -- falsely -- Chris Brown may have been at the wheel.

Standoff: Click to watch
It began at around 8:00 PM. A man driving a Bentley was engaged in a slow speed chase with cops. The way the story went -- police say the man was suspected of assault with a deadly weapon on his girlfriend and was supposed to rendezvous with a woman near the freeway. Word spread it may have been Chris Brown. As usual, the media danced around it dropping hints but never said it -- though they kinda did.

In the end, the driver stopped, there was as standoff and he shot himself in the head. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

We've learned the car had a Chicago registration. The owner had the Bentley and other high-end cars, including Porsches and Jaguars. We're not reporting the name yet.

Who really cares who it is, just one less loser causing trouble on the highways endangering the safety of others.

I'm willing to bet that it wasn't DJ Khaled...the guy actually looks more like Josh Tobin from King of Cars, who does own a number of High End Vehicles. He owns a used car dealership in Henderson Nevada. I'll bet that's who it is. He looks kinda like DJ Khaled, and after seeing the vid of this guy sitting in the car it could easily be this guy Josh Tobin.

This is not anyone that anyone knows. According to to msnbc; The newspaper described him as a businessman of Pakistani origin who was apparently "distraught over the loss of his business".
