Lyfe Jennings Arrested

Via R&B crooner Lyfe Jennings has reportedly been arrested by Georgia authorities for allegedly firing a gun and leading police on a high speed chase.

According to TMZ, authorities responded to a call of gunshots fired and they saw Jennings fleeing from the scene in a Corvette. Jennings would lead them on a high speed chase but eventually crashed.

Jennings was charged with felony weapon possession by a convicted felon.

He was also charged with eluding officers, discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusing to take the sobriety test. (photo via

The majority of his charges are misdemeanor charges, except the possession of a firearm and also the eluding police. The incident occured on Sunday, not yesterday or today as most sites have reported, and initially begun with a domestic dispute between Lyfe and his baby momma!!! Lyfe has reportedly been released from the Cobb County Detention Center after posting bond. A court day hasn't been scheduled.

Cobb County is listing Lyfe's age as 35, which is a little bit older than he has claimed to be. Most fan sites, and wikipedia, list his age as 30. This means that Lyfe was most likely an adult when he was sentenced to arson and spent 10 years in prison and not a 14 year old minor like we were previously led to believe.

This isn't the first arrest since Lyfe hit the entertainment scene. He was also arrested in Miami back in 2005 after a fight in the club during Radio One's Spring Fest.

Hopefully he makes it out in time for his concert scheduled this Friday, October 24th at the Atlanta Civic Center!!!! None of these arrests or incidents can hide the fact that this man is a music genius and his music is timeless. Keep your head up, Lyfe.

Here is a photo of Lyfe and one of his son's during happier times.
