‘Empire' Actor Jussie Smollett Charged With Making False Report


"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett has surrendered to the authorities this morning. He is charged with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said Smollett first faked a letter using racist and homophobic language. Johnson said when that didn't get attention Smollett paid $3,500 to two brothers to stage the attack. One was an extra on "Empire" and the other was Smollett's personal trainer.
