Empire creator Lee Daniels has been handed another Chicago-related legal headache following the arrest of the show’s star Bryshere Gray.
Just days after the director revealed his embarrassment over Jussie Smollett’s 2019 legal woes, Gray is in trouble over a series of driving offenses after he was pulled over by city police officials on Thursday (13Jun19).
Cops discovered he was driving his 2014 Rolls Royce without a license or insurance, according to TMZ.
The actor was booked on a misdemeanor and released. He was also cited for not have a license or insurance.
Smollett was arrested and charged with lying to cops over an alleged hate attack hoax. The prosecutor later dropped the case and released the actor.
Daniels recently blamed Smollett’s legal drama for the decision to end the show after one more season, of which the actor will not be part.
