The Cook County State's Attorney's Office Wednesday approved felony charges against Empire star Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report and disorderly conduct.
Chicago Police Department Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi shared on Twitter.
The charges, which came hours after the Chicago P.D. officially named Smollett a suspect, stem from a report Smollett filed on Jan. 29 that alleged he had been attacked by two men, who yelled homophobic and racial slurs at the actor and singer.
