Atlanta-based R&B singer/songwriter Lyfe Jennings, whose real name is Chester Jennings, was arrested in Smyrna on Sunday on an array of charges after he went looking for the mother of his children, Joy Pound, police said.According to his warrant, Jennings, a 30-year-old Marietta resident, kicked in the door at a house on Springwoods Drive in Smyrna, belonging to Jeff Kendrick, then fired rounds from a .40 caliber Glock in the street.
Police located Jennings driving his 2005 Corvette. According to the warrant, he initially refused to stop for officers when given audible and visual signals to do so. The warrant says he drove in excess of 70 miles per hour on Concord Road, which has a posted speed limit of 40 mph.
Once stopped, Jennings also refused an alcohol and blood test, according to the warrant. He was booked into Cobb County Jail and charged with DUI test refusal, criminal trespassing and discharging a weapon near a street, all misdemeanors, as well as possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, both felonies. He posted a $50,000 bond Monday.
Jennings was convicted of murder in Ohio in 1992 and subsequently served 10 years in prison, according to the warrant.
In 2004, he released the album “Lyfe 268-192,” with the numbers representing his prison number. He gained notoriety with his single “Must Be Nice” from that album. According to his Web site, the album was hailed as “gritty and raw” and won critical acclaim, eventually selling more than one million copies worldwide. In 2006, he released his sophomore effort “The Phoenix,” which expanded on his life story.
