An over three hour slow speed chase that began in North Hollywood and made its way through the LA area ended tragically after a 90-minute standoff one block away from where it all started. The driver of a white Bentley -- a businessman of Pakistani origin, according to the LA Times -- was taken by ambulance from the scene and later died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to reports.

Rumors were flying around that the driver of the Bentley was Chris Brown because the suspect was said to have assaulted his girlfriend this evening, is driving a window tinted white-colored Bentley with Illinois license plates and its the night after Chris Brown's alleged incident with Rihanna. However, LAPD's North Hollywood Division told KNBC and KTLA that the suspect is not a high profile celebrity.
