Empire star Bryshere Gray has been arrested after an alleged domestic dispute with his wife.
ETonline.com reports police in Arizona responded to a 911 call from an adult female, who said she had been assaulted by her husband, whom she identified as Gray.
She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a nearby hospital and later released.
SWAT and crisis negotiation teams were reportedly called out to assist when Gray refused to respond to officers’ requests to come outside.
Gray, who played Hakeem Lyon on Empire, was later booked on a domestic violence charge of aggravated assault, as well as two additional charges for assault and disorderly conduct.
Goodyear Police Department later shared his mugshot on its social media accounts.
In February, fellow cast mate Jussie Smollett, pleaded not guilty to six counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a hate crime.
