Chicago Police Intend To Charge Jussie Smollett If A False Report Was Filed
The horrific attack on Jussie Smollett just got a lot more complicated as reports are coming in that police plan on filing charges against the star if they believe he is lying about the circumstances surrounding his attack!
The Source reports that Jussie may have filed a false report to the police about the hate crime that happened to him on January 29th.
The investigation is still ongoing, however, due to the fact that the Empire star is refusing to hand his phone over to the police, he will have a hard time proving his case and avoiding jail time as his attackers have done so.
The Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson has also taken to social media to announce that if Smollett is found to be lying, he will be charged. Police are still trying to match surveillance footage to new suspects, as the original ones were found to be homeless people with no relation to the attack.
CPD has subpoenaed Smollett’s phone records, per a friend on the force. https://t.co/NuXHDejvJq
