"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.
