Chester “Lyfe” Jennings, pictured above during happier times with his kids and their mother Joy Bounds, is apparently no stranger to domestic issues. Police reports revealed yesterday that Lyfe kicked in the door of Bound’s Marietta home in search of her and shot several rounds into the street before fleeing and leading Cobb County police on a high speed chase. Bounds, who is good friends with T.I.’s boo Tiny, has been going through it with her babies father for quite some time now. In August of this year, Lyfe was even put on blast for terrorizing the young lady via the following email to SandraRose:
.. July 21 Lyfe left his tour [and] flew back to Atlanta so he could go and have the electricity turned OFF at the house where his 2 young sons (one still in diapers) live …and Mister (hmmmmm that name suits him) went to the house so he could watch the electric company guy turn it off! He told the Georgia Power Company that the house (which is in his name) was empty and to remove the meter… wellll when the electric guy saw that it was indeed someone living there and the bill was paid and up to date he wouldn’t remove the meter …Mister …got really nasty the police was called and evrrythang …but waitttttttttttttt its more ….I know you saying “hell dat’s enough”.
He then calls a lock smith to change the locks and goes down to the courts to get an eviction notice served….and hell dat wasn’t even enough he took the car knowing the kids car seats wouldn’t fit in the 2 seater car he left “BUT” took the keys to it……… Then he tells [personal info removed] he did all this cause he LOVES his kids and want his family back!! …saying this while calling his bank to put a Stop payment on the child support check that she had gotten the day before… the 1st in 3 months…. I guess he forgot the part he played in breaking up his family… Mister ‘rap-it-up didn’t follow his own advice… 2 babies on the way with 1 of the mama’s being a one night stand!!
Currently Lyfe has been charged with Criminal Trespass, Discharging a Firearm Near a Public Highway, DUI-Refusal, all misdemeanors. He was released Monday night on $50,000 bond. If it’s his house that he kicked the door in on, the misdemeanor charge for Criminal Trespass will probably be dropped. He’ll still have to answer to the gun charge and it’s possible that his felony charge has been expunged (he was 14 when he served a 10 year bid for felony arson). My advice to Lyfe…lay low and stay outta Cobb and Dekalb.
The saga continues.
