Omari portrays FBI Agent Tariq Cousins on the hit Fox show.

Morocco Omari, an actor known for his role on Fox's Empire, has been arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge, WGN reports.

Police say that a 24-year-old woman who identified herself as Omari's girlfriend called officers to the Hyde Park neighborhood, located on the south side of Chicago, on Wednesday afternoon. The woman told officers that, during an argument, Omari pushed her to the ground several times, which caused scratches on both her neck and chest.

Omari appeared in court on Thursday; he will stand before a judge again on April 20.
