Chicago officials said Smollett owes the city $130,106.15 incurred in overtime costs during the police investigation into the actor’s claims.
The city is seeking $130,000 from the "Empire" actor for an investigation into his alleged hate crime.
The Chicago prosecutor assigned to the ongoing investigation abruptly recused herself from the case Tuesday night.
At least one of the two men police detained in connection with the case reportedly worked on ‘Empire.’
The 'Empire' actor appeared on 'Good Morning America' to speak on his attack and defend himself against those calling him a liar.
Two people were captured on camera in the area around the time Smollett says he was attacked.
According to police, Smollett was assaulted by two offenders who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs."
Smollett's attackers yelled homophobic slurs and poured a chemical substance over him.
It only shows how lost and out of touch the government is.
