Chicago PD Releases Jussie Smollett's Mugshot
Chicago police have released Jussie Smollett‘s mugshot hours after he was placed under arrest for allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a hate attack.
The 36-year-old “Empire” star is dressed in a black puffer jacket and looks weary in the photo.
He turned himself in to police around 5 a.m. local time Thursday.
A bail hearing is set for later in the afternoon.
Smollet, who is gay, claims he was the victim of a vicious assault Jan. 29 in which two attackers shouted racist and homophobic slurs, doused him in what he believed was bleach and threw a rope around his neck.
