“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has been charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report about an attack he said occurred as he walked to his apartment building in Streeterville last month.

The charge, a felony, was announced by the Cook County state’s attorney’s office Wednesday evening, hours after police called Smollett “a suspect in a criminal investigation … for filing a false police report.”

“The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office has approved a disorderly conduct charge on Jussie Smollett,” Cook County prosecutors told yc.news, confirming that the ‘Empire’ star is up to no good.
