According to TMZ, the movie star was arrested for some driving-related offenses. Reports say he was pulled over on Thursday, June 13, 2019, by the police over registration issues.
It was then discovered that he was driving his Rolls Royce without a license and registration. The actor was booked on a misdemeanor registration that was not authorized on the vehicle and released. He was also cited for not having a license or insurance.
This latest development is coming a few months after another ‘Empire’ star, Jussie Smollett was arrested for allegedly planning his own attack. Jussie and Bryshere play brothers and two of the Lyon family sons.
Jussie was attacked in Chicago a few months ago and after investigations, he was charged with a 16 count charge for lying to the police and setting up his own attack.
When he was attacked
Jussie Smollett was hospitalised after he was reportedly injured by two men in what looks like a homophobic attack back in January. According to TMZ, the ‘Empire’ star arrived in Chicago from New York late Monday. He went to a Subway around 2 am because he was hungry. When he walked out someone yelled, “Aren’t you that f***ot Empire n****?”
There were reportedly two white men wearing ski masks that viciously attacked Jussie as he fought back. He reportedly suffered a fractured rib, and the attackers put a rope around his neck and poured bleach on him as they yelled, “This is MAGA country.”
He even pleaded not guilty to the charges
Jussie Smollett had pleaded not guilty to all the count charges leveled against him including that of lying to the police about his attack. The ‘Empire’ star who was arraigned before a court in Chicago on Thursday, March 14, 2019, pleaded not guilty to all 16 count charges. His plea was entered by one of his lawyers, Tina Glandian.
Prior to the arraignment, Judge Steven G. Watkins was assigned to oversee Smollett’s case. Watkins made a small change to the terms of Smollett’s bond, saying he will allow Smollett to travel Los Angeles and New York to meet with attorneys without first formally seeking court approval
