'Empire' Actor Jussie Smollett Pleaded Guilty to DUI, Providing False Information to Law Enforcement in 2007

As the police investigation into the alleged attack against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett continues, it was revealed Tuesday that in 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement, the L.A. City Attorney's office confirmed to NBC News.

Smollett, now 36, was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail in the 2007 case, an L.A. City Attorney's spokesman told NBC News.

The case is coming to light as Chicago police investigate whether Smollett made up a story about being the victim of a racially, motivated hate crime. Chicago police have requested LAPD provide them information about the 2007 arrest, according to multiple law enforcement sources familiar the investigation.

Chicago police officials say they have shifted their focus from a hate crime investigation to one of filing a false report.

At this point Chicago police have said Smollett is neither considered a victim nor a suspect and are waiting to hear from him.

Police sources tell NBC News that the LAPD made the initial arrest. The case was handled by prosecutors with the LA City Attorney's office in the Van Nuys branch.

EDITOR’S NOTE: When he got busted by the L.A. cops, Smollett lied by pretending to be his younger brother.

And here is good news. Chicago PD has finally admitted that Smollett is now an official suspect. Police officials say they’ve got their man. Rack his lying ass up!

The Chicago Police Department announced on Wednesday night that the Cook County State's Attorney Office had approved the criminal charges against 36-year-old Jussie Smollett. He is due in court on Thursday.

Police suspect that the Empire star, who is black and gay, staged a racist and homophobic assault against himself on January 29. He was charged with filing a false police report, a Class 4 felony which carries a maximum penalty of three years imprisonment and a $25,000 fine, as well as disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Earlier on Wednesday, a grand jury heard evidence in the case. Brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo, whom police believe participated in staging the attack, testified before the grand jury for about two and a half hours, their attorney said.

Video of the brothers shows them purchasing ski masks and a red hat, which investigators believe were worn during the attack.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Hallelujah, hallelujah! But fuck, he hasn’t been arrested. If he were white, his ass would have been locked up and then perp-walked to court in chains..

I just heard the Chicago Police Press Conference. He is done. The Chief even chastised the press. Chicago PD did a good job.
