Empire star, Bryshere Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon on the show has been arrested on domestic violence charges. He was taken into custody on Monday at his home in Goodyear, Arizona.
It is said that the police were called to a gas station in Goodyear, where they were there to help a woman who had flagged down a passerby stating that she had been 'assaulted at her Goodyear home for the last several hours by her husband'. This is according to a police report.
Following this, the woman was driven to the Circle K where 911 was called and later identified Gray as her husband. According to the police, there were multiple visible injuries on her body.
When the police arrived at Gray's home in Arizona, he found him that he barricaded inside the house overnight, which he then later surrendered himself to the authorities.
He was then taken to custody and now faces charges including domestic violence, aggravated assault, and disorderly conduct.
