Lyfe Jennings: Click to listen
In the recording, a neighbor frantically describes Jennings actions after he allegedly kicked in the door of his estranged girlfriend's residence shouting, "Where are my kids -- I want my f***ing kids!"

According to the woman, Jennings then went to his car, grabbed a gun and started shooting.

After leading police on a wild chase, Lyfe was eventually arrested on charges of felony weapon possession by a convicted felon and faces charges of attempting to elude police, discharging a firearm near a public highway and refusing to take the sobriety test.

Bypassing the racist ignorance put forth by the first poster...

This why it's a good idea to GET MARRIED BEFORE YOU REPRODUCE. It comes in all races, creeds and nationalities and I'm sick of these stories about guys who knock up women they don't intend to stay with and then act shocked when things get ugly. Be one Tom Brady, 50 Cent or any other idiot who can't figure out how to use a condom. Just stop it. No one's sympathetic. If you really loved your kids you'd create a stable home for them.

I am sorry to hear that someone with so much promise, talent, and inspiration has let anger make his decisions. I don't know what pushed him to so much anger, but I am certain we don't know the real story. In any case, as for the other stupid, ignorant comments to compare this event (and i am certain we don't know the entire story yet) to why some old crocking, clone of Bush should be elected, is the most backasswards thinking I have seen. I hope the person who made that comment isn't old enough to vote, because its truly sad that an individual would select color, or a single crime to pursuade them in choosing sides.

Thank goodness US magazine isn't bought by intelligent people.

No offense Tamm, but t=why post that video twice? Esp since it has nothing to do with the post?

The man sounds like a jerk. I guess voting for president will change all of that #1. Sheesh, get real!!!

Refusing to take a sobriety test? Ha! Being charged and convicted of public intoxiation/drunk driving are the least of his worries. The far more serious charges against him will make the intoxication charges seem like library fines. This man is a tool of major proportions.
