[NEWS] Lyfe Jennings Heads Back To Jail

Do y'all remember two years ago when news broke out that Lyfe Jennings was arrested for a DUI and participating in a car chase between himself and some cops?

The charges to be exact were for "DUI test refusal, criminal trespassing, discharging a weapon near a street, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer."

Apparently, Lyfe decided to fire several shots from his .40 caliber (that was probably unregistered) before fleeing the scene in his car. He probably was thinking that he didn't want to go back to jail and thought handling the situation like an OG was the wisest course of action.

It wasn't.

Unfortunately, Lyfe was unable to beat the case and was sentenced to 3 1/2 years behind bars. Lyfe requested earlier today to go home and see his children before he began serving his time but the judge refused, according to BV, and sent him to jail.

Lyfe's last tweet was...

"This will be my last post. To everyone who gave me a chance I am forever in your debt. I have had a fabulous career because of you. All I can say in parting is that I have been honest with yaw. I didn't sugarcoat a word didn't hold back a single syllable of my life from yaw. I've lived a hundred lives in these 6 yrs so I not only won't, I don't have the right to complain. I would like to think that I've changed lives by changing my own, tho I can't be sure. But one thing I am sure of is God gives and takes away in measure. He is fair, just and forever. Amen from a man... Smile, it's contagious :)"

Lyfe previously served 10 years in jail and was released in 2002. After being released from jail, the singer appeared on Apollo's amateur night where he got his start.

I became a fan of Lyfe after his very first performance at Apollo, scuffed Timbs and all. It's sad to see that he took a step backwards in his journey.
