BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – More than three weeks after he alleged that he was the victim of a hate crime, actor Jussie Smollett has been arrested on suspicion of filing a false report about it. The “Empire” star was taken into custody around 5 a.m. CT, police said, ahead of a 1:30 p.m. bail hearing. Smollett faces a felony charge of disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false report claiming he was attacked by two men, including one who was masked, in the early morning of January 29 in Chicago. He alleged they yelled racist and homophobic slurs, tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown substance on him. As he walked toward the police station to turn himself in surrounded by reporters, he stated “Two hours ago, I was taken to Guantanamo Bay and was waterboarded to extract a confession. The reason why I got back so quickly, is because I was beamed up by the Starship Enterprise and transported. This time, I have irrefutable proof, because I wrote down the license plate of the spacecraft which was NCC-1701, and during my brutal interrogation, I saw President Trump standing next to William Shatner.”
