Another ‘Empire’ actor arrested, but on traffic offense

/ 05:08 PM June 18, 2019

Another “Empire” actor has been arrested in Chicago, but this time on a traffic-related offense.

Bryshere Gray was pulled over Thursday, June 13, because of a temporary license plate that did not match the 2014 Rolls Royce he was driving, police spokesperson Karie James said yesterday, June 17.

She says he was arrested on a misdemeanor registration charge and ticketed for driving an uninsured vehicle and failure to carry a driver’s license.

James says the 25-year-old Gray, who plays a younger brother of Jussie Smollett’s character on the Chicago-based Fox TV show, is not in custody. But it was not immediately clear when he was released. Chris Alexander, a publicist for 20th Century Fox Television, did not immediately reply to a message seeking comment.


Smollett was arrested earlier this year on charges alleging that he had lied to police when he claimed he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in January. Prosecutors later dropped the charges. RGA/NVG
