We told you about Morocco Omari’s arrest a year ago and now a final decision in this case has been reached.

It took the jury less than 2 hours to find the Empire actor not guilty on domestic violence charges.

A woman who identified herself as Omari’s girlfriend said the actor pushed her down and that resulted in scratches on her neck and chest.

He denied those claims saying “he could never beat a woman”.

Omari’s character was an FBI agent and Lucious Lyon’s half-brother on the hit FOX TV show.  He was killed off last season.
