Actor Bryshere Gray is the latest “Empire” star to get in trouble with the law after being arrested in Chicago last week.
According to court records obtained by The Blast, the 25-year-old Gray was arrested by the Chicago Police Department after being pulled over by law enforcement.
The arrest went down on June 13, 2019 at around 10:37 AM.
The actor was charged with three minor offenses relating to his driving record. The first was for not having the title/registration in his possession for the car he was driving. He was also charged for not having proper insurance and for failing to carry his driver’s license with him.
The “Empire” actor was arrested by police and booked into a local jail where his mug shot was taken. He was released the same day after paying $2,000 bond. His official release time is listed as 4:00 PM.
No court date has been set for when Gray has to appear in Chicago Court to face his charges.
The minor legal problems are the latest in a string of issues with the cast of “Empire.”
Jussie Smollett was cut from the show following allegations he faked a hate crime against himself. A criminal case followed and despite the charges being dropped, Lee Daniels has been adamant there are no plans to bring Smollett back to the final season.
Fellow co-star Terrence Howard is also facing his own issues with him being under criminal investigation for alleged tax evasion. The case stems out of the United States Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and is still ongoing.
We’ve learned that the actor has hired a high profile white collar criminal attorney to defend him in the investigation. Our sources say within the last few weeks, federal investigators have already had initial discussions with Howard.
Terrence Howard and his fiancée became aware they were under investigation on May 20, 2019.
The actor has had his share of tax issues over the years. As The Blast first reported, he was hit with a tax lien in April by the State of California Franchise Tax Board for a total $143,538.61. The lien stems from taxes Howard reportedly owes from 2010.
Something tells us we don’t have to worry about Taraji.
