Twitter Reacts to Chicago PD Arresting Jussie Smollet For Creating a False Police Report About His Alleged Attack; Here’s How Much Time The EMPIRE Actor is Potentially Facing (Video)

This headline was basically inevitable. The only surprising thing here is that Chicago Police arrested Jussie before they got around to arresting R. Kelly. 

In a twist of fate for the Empire actor, Jussie actually ended up turning his own self in, when he was the person, who allegedly and originally fabricated the report. According to CNN, Jussie had an interview scheduled with Chicago Police yesterday to discuss the specifics of his case, and he apparently “missed it.” Then, after reports started to surface that the Empire Star might be lying here, Jussie had to really reevaluate his position. 

Subsequently, Smollet’s story immediately started to unfold after we all learned that the two men that Jussie previously alleged had attacked him were “two white men screaming #MAGA”, were actually just two black guys from Nigeria. Moreover, these two black guys also happened to work on Empire’s set with Jussie. In fact, they all apparently know each other. So, as I previously mentioned last week here on BSO, all these guys involved were actors—which. also isn’t a great look for Jussie’s case either.

Now, according to CBS News, Jussie is looking at a fine of $25,000 & up to three years in prison. Hence why Jussie’s legal team probably (and wisely) told the actor that he should simply turn himself in today. “Cooperation” generally gets you leniency in the eyes of the Courts, but this is a Hollywood actor we’re talking about here, so who knows exactly how the Chicago Justice Department is going to handle this whole situation. 

As of the past hour, the EMPIRE star is in the custody of Chicago Police for faking an attack. Still, Jussie hasn’t been indicted yet. Chicago PD’s Chief is expected to speak on the arrest at some point today, and Jussie will stand for his charges in Court later this afternoon for his bond hearing. Presently, Chicago PD claims Jussie told them to turn their body cameras off and then Jussie drove himself to the hospital after they arrived at the scene. 

Also, for some reason, Fox News was reporting that Jussie could have “started a race riot”, so Chicago PD should probably go ahead and arrest these Fox News anchors for creating false report too, but I digress…
