(BAWN) –Chicago, IL. -“Empire” star Jussie Smollett has just been charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false report claiming two men (possibly his associates) attacked him last month, a Chicago Police Department spokesman tweeted Wednesday night.Anthony Guglielmi said charges were approved by the Cook County State’s Attorney Office and “Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.”Filing a false police report is disorderly conduct, according to Illinois code.
A class 4 felony is punishable by one to three years, the code says.A bail hearing is anticipated for 1:30 p.m. CT Thursday, prosecutors said. Smollett’s transformation from victim to suspect in a reported attack that captured national headlines came on the same day that a high-ranking police source said Chicago detectives were working to obtain the actor’s financial records.
A Cook County grand jury met Wednesday just weeks after the young actor reported being the victim of a hate crime on January 29. Again, Smollett is expected to turn himself in.
**UPDATE February 21, 2019 at 8:00am**
Smollett, who had felony criminal charges approved against him Wednesday, turned himself in to police, authorities said.
