Popular actor from the Empire movie cast has been arrested in Chicago. Bryshere Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon on the Fox musical drama was pulled over Thursdays because a temporary license plate didn’t match the 2014 Rolls Royce he was driving.
A representative for the police department said the actor was arrested on a misdemeanor registration charge and ticketed for driving an uninsured vehicle and failure to carry a driver’s license.
According to USA Today, the 25-year-old was released from custody shortly after his arrest, though a specific time was not provided. Neither Gray nor show representatives have spoken publicly about the arrest.
The arrest comes just a few months after Jussie Smollett made headlines after being accused of staging a homophobic and racist attack on himself in Chicago back in January, leading to a media storm surrounding his legal trouble and eventual exit from Empire.
