‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

Photo: JPI Studios

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

how do I delete my sympathy from this site when the story first broke and we all were horrified for him. I have delete all his music and will never listen to his songs again. The shame he has brought to all gay men is tragic.

Now when others report attacks, people may be skeptical.

I don’t know that he has brought shame to all gay men. He himself is shameful and what he did is shameful. IMO it’s just tarnished him.

So true, Momo.
I feel nothing but contempt for Smollett. He is a usurper who took advantage of the turmoil going on……he knew/knows how strong the biases against Trump are…..used it to the hilt!!
He wished to garner sympathy…..blaming Trump supporters, as having low tolerance for blacks and gays? Other way around….It backfired!!
All he did was accomplish nothing…did not move any needle except for career suicide.

To be honest, brian, I had never heard of him before….I do not watch any program except LAW AND ORDER: SVU and FBI ( new show)…..I will catch NCIS on Tuesdays, when I can…..I dvr them most of the time. I love repeats of BOSTON LEGAL—-those writers have wit ( cannot compare to anyone else—they are intellectually over-the top) with a twisted sense of humor—love it!! Sorry for regressing….

Sorry, brian….autocorrect hates me. LOL….I did type “digress”, yet when I wasn’t looking! autocorrect changed it to “regress”. HaHa.
As Momo remarked, this horrible “put-on” will be disastrous for those who truly are/will be victims of hate crimes–
I know first hand what two of my very best friends, who are gay and whom I have known since pre-school, have faced….the hate; the slurs; the mean, mocking looks…
Yes, homosexuality is seemingly accepted, in the modern world; however, the viciousness still exists. This guy, just set us back some, did he not? Shameful!! I hope he rots in he!!.

Brian,
Don’t feel shame for your sympathies ever.
This event came at the perfect time. I feel sympathy for Jussie too, he’s obviuosly a lazy couch potato, listening Whoopie and Joy’s hate filled rants on The View, every day, and became a bit unstable, thats all it is.
The world is coming into balance slowly.
Only racists, can fight racism.
Only homophobes can fight homophobia. I could go on, but the list is a black hole to Hell.
It only ends, when people start thinking for themselves, and banish their brainwashing.
Jussie did a great service in waking people up.

Celia

What an admirable way to phrase your sentences, VIEWE88!!
“Only racists can fight racism….only homophobes can fight homophobia.”….I never looked at it that way—-very philosophical of you!! And, I agree. Unless one knows a gay person well, or there is a family member who is gay; one will not understand that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, or that the parents did something wrong rearing their child.
You make so much sense……Smollett’s actions were an eye-opener. Yet, sadly, some people will never see the light; no matter how bright it shines.❤️

As a gay MAGA man, I would say that we still have to be kind to all and reserve judgment. I knew this was a hoax because people don’t stalk people in Chicago during a polar vortex, screaming this is MAGA country. I was in Chicago that week. It was too cold to walk a block, much less attack a man in a low crime part of the city. I’m concerned that our rush to believe people’s stories when they villainize people we fear, yet are misinformed about, well, I’m concerned the anger and violence it incites. I’ve been attacked… Read more »

Hey, Patrick, The media was quick enough to rush to judgment over Nicholas, the Covington student. I don’t know exactly what you mean, Patrick. He knew what he was doing? He wasn’t doing anything except waiting for the bus and wearing a Maga hat. The Indian approached him….beating that drum in his face. An old jailbird instigating a fifteen-year-old!!

Excellent post. As an African American Trump supporter I feel you. It is insane what all this “tribal” nonsense have done to critical thinking. People in my own family and friends have called me names for supporting Trump, or I should say supporting our president and praying for the country to succeed. No one president have ever been perfect and I in agreement with all their policies, but I do think it is important to allow an individual to feel free to support who they want and don’t attack them for it.

Hi Brian – I agree with @Momo that this is not a representation of ALL gay men. as this indirectly does not constitute a legal HATE CRIME. he did this because he wanted empathy ???? AND he thought “Empire” would throw a little bit more cash on all his paychecks? Money and Greed turned his mind ? AND he brought this all on himself. I don’t know how much he was making off of his music… PLUS his salary from the show. I’ve never heard of him prior to EMPIRE. dag! he wanted it all, right here and now. who… Read more »

How to get a pay raise by Jussie Smollett: mail yourself a threatening letter. If that doesn’t do it, orchestrate an assault. Lie to police and go on TV and continually lie, showing your bosses how great an actor you are. This will surely get their attention. If confronted with irrefutable evidence that you organized it all, keep lying! Your bosses will surely appreciate your dedication to the lie!

I hope he gets prison time and loses his job. He went on a PR run after his “attack”. He really put the spotlight on the Chicago PD and Chicago.

He has lied to police before.

He just continually lied. I wouldn’t want to work with him.

There are better ways to go about getting a raise and publicity. How stupid and sad he resorted to this.

hi Momo–
He has ”lost his job”
he will not go to prison he is charged with disorderly conduct.
Nonetheless; He has created for himself his own prison.

Momo

I read that he’ll probably get probation, but considering the magnitude and scope of his lying and how he basically went on a PR run repeating his lies, I think he should get some prison time AND a huge fine.

Maybe if he’s charged with federal crimes, that might create some prison time.

How did he think he could get away with this??? It just boggles the mind.

@Momo…From your lips to the justice system’s ears! I would love to see this fool get a no-nonsense judge with some really creative sentencing moves…like making Smollett wear a MAGA hat 24/7 for at least 30 days….be it in the slammer or on display in the public square! Now THAT would truly be just desserts for this criminal’s utterly shameful attempts to not only impugn our president and his supporters, but to further inflame racial tensions in our country.

Oh, Patrick…..this is an incident to you? Not an incident. It’s a crime!! Punishable by law—-an assault to all that’s right!! Do you consider the verbal assault on Trump’s young son, and his grandchildren an incident, as well? Not laden with hate? …. so heavy, it will explode everywhichway? They are children, for goodness sakes. Taboo. Keep out.
If there is mail fraud, this jerk needs jail time. No excuses…no one forced his hand…..even as a hoax—sending himself white powder? Sick. Disturbed. Anyone who naysays this.

The notion that anyone would concoct such a phony scenario in order to attract attention for themselves is simply wrong on so many levels…legally, morally and socially….It disrespects those who have suffered actual attacks like the one purported, not to mention, the people of Chicago who are in desperate need of every ounce of police protection the city can muster.

Hi Celia 🙂
Time will tell- have to go through this first;
Federal law enforcement sources tell us they’re still investigating the letter and have drawn no conclusions. Both federal and state law enforcement sources say the operating theory was that the 2 brothers — Abel and Ola Osundairo — may have mailed the letter because, when cops raided their apartment and seized magazines, there were pages missing.

The FBI tells they are assisting Chicago PD in determining who sent the letter. We asked repeatedly if they are conducting an independent mail fraud investigation, but they will neither confirm nor deny.

The brothers were paid to do Smollett’s bidding, my SuzieQ…..if you ask me, Jussie is a perpetrator with a serious mental dysfunction. No sane person would go through such criminal machinations and lengths to satisfy whatever hunger is within him/her. Too messy—so many clues left behind. The brothers are just as guilty, of course—- I bet Abel is the good brother. Oops–forgive me–no Bible jokes. Such a sinner, I am!! If he wanted more money, he could have gotten a second job…..My father worked three jobs, and then some, as a teen, to save for College….and then law school. My… Read more »

I always thought Jussie had a great talent, killer smile, and was a huge asset to “Empire.” When he appeared on “Live With Kelly,” he had a great spirit that made me wonder if he might eventually be her permanent co-host. This story made me sick when it happened and I never thought the result would be that Jussie orchestrated the attack. As I watched the press conference this morning, I held out hope that he was still telling the truth. Now, it makes me realize how much damage has been done by this stunt for attention.

“His narcissism took valuable sources away from the Chicago Police department.”

Yes! He ought to have to repay the city for the expenses incurred in investigating his lies.

And I think this is so much worse than just an individual making a false police report because it got national attention, he went on TV talking about, he talked about it at his concert.

Are you that hungry for publicity that you will pretend to be a victim? It diminishes true victims. The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

He could also get federal charges if he mailed that threat to himself. FBI is investigating. He’s in a world of trouble. I think FOX has to write him for the rest of the season at least.

OK– a confession, he is chin deep in trouble.
What a brain dead thing to do, for a publicity stunt.

He was not my favorite brother on Empire I like Hakeem.
Jussie is a black gay man, on screen and off, that was unusual and he has a great voice.
What a shame seeing him destroy his life.

Attorney- ”’; “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked””

”’Smollett was charged with disorderly conduct.”’

When Chicago police didn’t find any surveillance footage of the actual attack, I knew that Mr. Smollet’s tale of woe was going off the rails. Just to be clear, I am not African-American, I am white.

I think the media has spent far too much time on the guy from Empire!!! Better spent on the efforts of FBI and law enforcement who found the home grown, Coast Guard Lt/ex-Marine who had more guns than I’m sure the founding fathers ever thought we would want or need, and wanted to kill “everyone,” including targeted politicians. Wonder what makes someone like him tick?

I think he’s incredibly greedy. He earned $100,000 per episode. Does he know how many people would be thrilled to make a portion of that salary??!’

Maybe he didn’t want to give his agent a percentage of his pay raise so he decided to “negotiate” It himself. I would like to know how he thought him being attacked would result in a pay raise.

He should be charged with a hate crime. He did it times 3: gays, blacks, and Trump supporters and it all backfired horrendously.
