Empire actor Morocco Omari is in some serious trouble.
The 41-year-old, who plays Terrence Howard's half brother on the Fox hit, was arrested in Chicago, IL on Wednesday for allegedly brutalizing a woman. How awful!
According to TMZ, the police responded to a 24-year-old woman's 911 call who claimed she and Omari got into a fight which resulted in the industry vet pushing her to the ground several times.
It's said the unnamed woman suffered from scratches on her neck and chest. Apparently, the alleged victim has since identified herself as Morocco's girlfriend.
Reportedly the cops, who showed up around 2:30 p.m., saw the injuries firsthand and proceeded to book the Empire villain for misdemeanor domestic battery. Morocco plays the current antagonist on the celebrated drama — perhaps there's a reason Mr. Omari is so good at playing a villain??
Anywho, we'll be keeping our eyes on this case as more details are likely to trickle in, especially since Omari is slated to appear in court on Thursday. Stay tuned!
