Smyrna R&B singer Lyfe Jennings
, arrested earlier this week on gun charges, trashed most of his estranged girlfriend’s clothes and shoes, turned her electricity off and threatened to kill her, the woman has alleged in court documents.
He fired a gun in the street, tried to run from Smyrna police, crashed his red Corvette and sustained minor injuries, authorities said. Jennings allegedly refused to take a field sobriety test. The warrant said he “had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” on his breath.
He previously served 10 years in an Ohio prison after a conviction on arson and drug-related charges, according to the Ohio Department of Corrections Web site.
After his release in December 2002, Jennings launched a successful music career. His first album, in August 2004, was titled “Lyfe 268-192,” with the numbers representing his prison number.
