Police arrest Jussie Smollett

Chicago Police on Thursday arrested Empire actor, Jussie Smollett, releasing his mugshot for allegedly lying about being the victim of a homophobic attack.

The 36-year-old “Empire” star is dressed in a black puffer jacket and looks weary in the photo.

He turned himself to the police today around 5 a.m. local time.

A bail hearing has been set for this afternoon.

Smollett, who is gay, claims he was the victim of a violent racial assault on January 29 in which two attackers shouted racist and homophobic slurs, poured liquid substance believed to be bleach on him and threw a rope around his neck.
