‘Empire’ star Bryshere Gray has been arrested following accusations of domestic violence.
via Fox Phoenix:
On July 12 at 10:15 p.m., police arrived at the scene of a Circle K store near McDowell Road and Pebble Creek Parkway to help a woman.
According to the Goodyear Police report, “The woman had flagged down a citizen for help moments earlier at another nearby gas station stating that she had been assaulted at her Goodyear home for the last several hours by her husband. The citizen then drove the victim to the Circle K and called 911. The victim told police her husband was Bryshere Gray, an actor on the TV series ‘Empire.'”
Investigators say the victim had numerous visible injuries on her body and she stated she was strangled at one point by Gray. She was transported to an area hospital.
When police went to the couple’s home to contact Gray, he would not exit the residence. Due to a barricade situation, Goodyear SWAT and Crisis Negotiations were called to the scene.
Lt. Jason Costello says the situation was finally resolved July 13 after 7:00 a.m. when Gray surrendered without incident. He was taken into custody and booked into the Maricopa County Jail.
Gray is accused of aggravated assault (strangulation), assault (domestic violence) and disorderly conduct.
The victim was treated for her injuries and released from the hospital.
There’s so much to unpack here — we don’t even know where to begin. We’re just relieved she managed to get help before it was too late.
