Jussie Smollett Charged With Filing False Police Report

Jussie Smollett is facing charges.

The 36-year-old Empire star was charged with filing a false police report on Wednesday (February 20) following confirmation by Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi that detectives were presenting evidence in front of a Cook County grand jury, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed.

“Felony criminal charges have been approved by @CookCountySAO against Jussie Smollett for Disorderly Conduct / Filing a False Police Report. Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest,” police spokesman Anthony tweeted.

The news comes shortly after the police spokesman confirmed that Jussie is now being classified as a suspect following the investigation into his alleged assault in Chicago.

If you don’t know, police allegedly believe Jussie paid two brothers to stage the attack.

    I feel sad about it. Saw him on a talk show once. Seems like such a nice person. Made a terrible mistake and disappointed a lot of people.

    Good. If he infact did do that he deserves nothing more nothing less. Regardless of what your political views are if he did this asinine thing that helps no one he deserves to have the book thrown at him.

    Jussie Smollett is a pathological liar.

    Fking called it.

    Kamala Harris had this guy campaign for her too and she was letting off pedofile preists, blocked a report that would release the names of numerous pedopgile preists working in California that the former AG has sought to release only to lose his position, she taking over, and squashed the entire investigations.

    ALL those preists are still in California and working. She brought in not a single one of them and she denied the victims a chance to take them to court.

    Then she had the gall to stand by this guy and all along he was lying. So she crushes real victims and elevates the fake ones.
