Chicago police spoke Feb. 21 about the arrest of "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett and the charges he faces for allegedly staging an attack several weeks ago.
Smollett turned himself into police on Thursday after police said he had become a suspect. He is facing charges of disorderly conduct and filing a false police report. He is expected to make a court appearance this morning for a bond hearing.
It comes just weeks after he alleged he was assaulted in what he called a racist and homophobic attack. According to police, they have evidence including a cheque and phone records that they believe show the incident was allegedly staged.
