‘Empire’ Star Bryshere Gray Arrested For Series Of Driving Offenses

Another blow has come to the Lyon’s Den. It’s being reported that Empire star Bryshere Gray, known to audiences as Hakeem Lyon, was recently arrested in Chicago for a series of driving-related offenses.

Bryshere Gray, the youngest of the Lyon sons on the FOX series Empire, is having a negative experience with Chicago police—just like his co-star (and onscreen brother) Jussie Smollett. According to reports, Gray found himself on the wrong side of the law when he was recently arrested for multiple driving offenses.

On June 14th, Gray was pulled over by Chicago police for a vehicle registration issue because the tags didn’t match the car. After initially pulling him over, police also discovered Gray was driving his 2014 Rolls-Royce without a driver’s license or car insurance.

Gray was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, which was the lack of registration, and received a citation for driving without a license and lack of insurance. He was released after a short time.


Gray was likely in Chicago because the final season of Empire is set to begin shooting soon, if it hasn’t already started. As you know, the series was abruptly cancelled after actor Jussie Smollett’s massive hate crime attack scandal earlier this year.
