Empire’ actor Bryshere Gray arrested by SWAT team on domestic assault charges

Police arrested “Empire” actor Bryshere Gray on domestic violence charges after a nine-hour standoff with a SWAT team, authorities in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear said Monday.

The incident began Sunday night at about 10:15 p.m., when Goodyear Police responded to a 911 call alleging “an adult female victim had been allegedly assaulted at her Goodyear home by her husband, who she identified as Bryshere Gray, an actor on the TV series ‘Empire,’ " police said in a statement.

Her injuries were non life-threatening, and she was treated and released, police said, adding that detectives and a Victim’s Advocate “continued to assist her after her discharge from the hospital.”

When cops got to their home, Gray refused to come outside and speak with officers, the statement said.

“Goodyear SWAT and Crisis Negotiations were called out to assist,” police said.
