Jussie Smollett was arrested early this morning in Chicago. The crime? Filing a false police report. The charge?  Felony disorderly conduct.

A statement from Smollett’s lawyers states, “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

In a press conference this morning, police revealed that they had the check that Smollet used to pay the two brothers to assist in the attack. Police also said that phone records revealed that Smollett spoke with the two brothers in the hours before and after the attack.

The question everyone wants to know…WHY??? Police said he was dissatisfied with his salary.

Jussie Smollett has a bond hearing scheduled for later this afternoon.
