Empire Actor, Bryshere Gray Arrested In Chicago

Wednesday, 19 June 2019

Another actor from the Empire movie cast has been arrested in Chicago. Bryshere Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon on the Fox musical drama was pulled over Thursdays because a temporary license plate didn’t match the 2014 Rolls Royce he was driving.

A representative for the police department said the actor was arrested on a misdemeanor registration charge and ticketed for driving an uninsured vehicle and failure to carry a driver’s license.

According to USA Today, the 25-year-old was released from custody shortly after his arrest, though a specific time was not provided. Neither Gray nor show representatives have spoken publicly about the arrest.

The arrest comes just a few months after Jussie Smollett made headlines after being accused of staging a homophobic and racist attack on himself in Chicago back in January, leading to a media storm surrounding his legal trouble and eventual exit from Empire.
