According to a press release, officers in the Arizona city west of Phoenix received a 911 call on Sunday night about a woman saying she had been assaulted for several hours by her husband, whom she identified as the 26-year-old actor.
The call was made by a citizen whom the woman flagged down at a nearby gas station for help. The woman, who had multiple injuries visible on her body, told police that Gray strangled her and that she had temporarily lost consciousness.
She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for her injuries and later released.
When officers arrived at the actor's residence, he refused to come out of the house. Goodyear SWAT and Crisis Negotiations were called in to assist.
At 7 a.m. on Monday, Gray approached the front of his residence and surrendered to officers. He was arrested and charged with a felony count of aggravated assault and two misdemeanor counts of domestic violence and disorderly conduct.
USA TODAY has reached out to Gray's reps and to the Goodyear Police Department for comment.
This isn't Gray's first arrest. The actor, who plays a younger brother of Jussie Smollett’s character on the Chicago-based Fox TV show, was pulled over last year because a temporary license plate didn’t match the 2014 Rolls Royce he was driving. He was arrested on a misdemeanor registration charge and ticketed for driving an uninsured vehicle and failure to carry a driver’s license.
