Police chase stand-off
The girlfriend said Grado told her he was going to buy a gun and threatened to kill her if she called the police.
Hours later, police spotted Grado’s white BMW X5 on Interstate 5 and attempted to pull him over.
When he refused, police chased him along several freeways before eventually deploying spike strips to stop him.
Aerial footage obtained by ABC7showed about three dozen police and armored vehicles surrounding Grado’s car on the highway.
After police spiked his tires, Grado started live streaming while officers closed in on him on the highway.
He filmed himself brandishing a gun and crying as police helicopters circled above his car.
Footage showed him pointing the gun at his head multiple times and saying that he loved his infant son.
Threatened to end life
At one point, he said:
‘I am now weak. I just f**king hate my life, bro. I’m just tired of this f**king life, f**k the police.’
The man also posted a photo of himself with his son before he killed himself. The car enthusiast’s suicide follows claims that Grado caught his partner cheating on him.
Police tried to negotiate with Grado for about an hour after he told them he was armed with a gun.

He shot himself in the head soon after and was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Grado was a car enthusiast with more than 56,000 followers on Instagram.
