R&B Star Stung in Stingray

10/22/2008 1:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

R&B bigshot Lyfe Jennings just got nabbed by Georgia police for allegedly shooting off a gun, taking cops on a chase in a Corvette, and refusing to take a DUI test.

Smyrna, Ga. police tell us they were responding to a gunshots fired call when they spotted Jennings' Vette hightailing it away from the scene. A chase ensued and Jennings eventually crashed. He was charged with felony weapon possession by a convicted felon and he faces charges of attempting to elude, as well as discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusing to take the sobriety test.

Lyfe -- real name Chester -- was in prison from 1992-2002 after being convicted of arson.

My friends, as election day draws near consider this. Hussein Obama has exactly 146 days experience in the Congress. That, my friend, is nothing to be running a country with the complexities of the US. Please vote McCain/Palin and yes on Prop 8 in California. Keep marriage between a man and a woman.

1st - Chester is as dumb as he looks, R&B star risking the ruin of his career because he can't obviousy control his emotions and do what the police say when they asked him to stop or take a dui test .... I'm not feelin' sorry for this guy

2nd - No. 3, in the U.S., people have the right to vote for whomever they please. It is un-ethical to make a feable attempt at forcing your veiws on others. Your choice is to choose McCain and that is wonderful ... allow others to have their choice ...

3rd - No. 4's response (about Chester ) is ignorant and racist. I bet a million dollars if you traced your family tree back 100 years or less you will find other races. I am caucasion and I know for a fact that if I traced my tree I would find all sorts of nationalities .... seems to me that ignorance obviously has no color especially were you are concerned ....

None of you you racist pigs would say that in a black person's face....especially not his or mine. I guess if you cant be a thug in real life then we should let you settle for being an internet thug huh.....Cowards. Yeah he was really stupid for doing what he did, but this doesn't even compare to the actions of Lohan a few days ago. That was no problem though huh? Out of nowhere comes Obama's name.....Say what you like but he will be the next president

Just because some black people have done ignorant things doesn't mean we should group them all in to a group of bad people. If we do then the same should be said for all white people, and I refust to be held placed in the same group as G.W. Bush. the KKK, Charles Manson, etc.

I feel so sorry for my boy Lyfe. I know he wasn't in his right mind and is obviously stressing over a woman or something else. This man is so deep and I feel like crying...OH BOY, I hope he doesn't go back in jail.

# 8, I totally agree w/you. Sadly though it goes to show that some racist people of the past have raised their children to be racist as well. What a vial waste of energy and emotions. I apologize for any negative thing said within these responses that have negative racial undertones.

While I personally don't have a racist bone in my body ..... it's unfortunate that a lot of people do. I think someone has to stand up ..... right is right and wrong is wrong. All of you with negative racial comments really need to search within yourself. You are very angry about something and I doubt very seriously if it stems from the color of someone's skin .....

Doesn't Matter    

First, let me say that everyone that has made a racist remark is just as ignorant as Chester's mihap. Now, lets get to the matter at hand. I'm guessing the racist pigs that have posted on this site feel so threatened that African Americans aren't intimated by your foolish tactics. What it seems is that your very intimated and threatened by our knowledge and sucess. You make statements regarding all Black people that is really sad and my heart hurts for your level of non education. You give examples of the Black people in the view of the public. What about Nick Hogan that actually almost killed a young man and has taken his quality of life? What about the white people that make all the wrong choices pretty much the same as other races? You really need to take a moment to search yourselves as to why you hate so much. You're the ones with the issues not the black people. Get a grip stupid A$$es Obama's Mother is WHITE and your looking at the color of ones skin is pathetic. Why don't you do your research before you make such a foolish statement. He is more educated then most people Black, White or whatever..

Maybe you need to get GOD in your life and he can show you how ignorant you really are

Come on TMZ! How in the hell did this turn into an Obama hate forum? Perhaps you need to clean this up. Where is the FCC when you need them?

Yes, Mr. Jennings (Lyfe) was wrong in his actions. But might I ask..if anyone of you are without faults please cast the first stone. This is indeed a senseless act on his part. I only pray that this causes him to think of his actions, now and in the future; his life, his career and his family. In spite of this, he's a good person; perhaps wiser than his years but nonetheless a good person. Let’s not rally to his demise, less it be you. Remember that we ALL are in need of forgiveness. It’s Mr. Jennings today but could very well be you tomorrow. Here's to LYFE!!!

FAN TO LYFE…FOR LIFE!!!
