Jussie Smollett threatens to sue Chicago Police

Jussie Smollett to sue chicago police

American actor, Jussie Smollett has threatened to sue the City of Chicago, which is suing him for the cost of investigating what City officials believe was a fake “attack”.


The city of Chicago wants around a half a million dollars for various costs associated with investigating Jussie’s claim he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack last January.

The former “Empire” actor says he’s seriously thinking about filing a lawsuit against Chi-Town, “for their conduct underlying the arrest and their conduct thereafter.” Translation — he thinks he’s the victim of a malicious prosecution.

As you know, the Cook County Grand Jury indicted Jussie on 16 felony counts of lying to cops about the alleged attack. The State’s Attorney dismissed all charges but now a special prosecutor is looking into the dismissal and has the power to reinstate the charges.
