Jussie Smollett Sued For Police Costs Over Hoax Attack
Reuters reports the city of Chicago filed a lawsuit on Thursday against former 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett.
The city claims Smollett owes it over $130,000 for police costs incurred in the investigation of an allegedly phony hate crime.
The lawsuit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court after prosecutors dismissed all criminal charges against him.
Smollett ignited a firestorm on social media by telling police two apparent supporters of President Donald Trump attacked him.
