Jussie Smollett is reportedly in police custody according to the Chicago Police Department.
Last night, we reported on Jussie officially being indicted by a grand jury for allegedly filing a false police report, and it looks like they’ve moved quickly following those reports.
Jussie is an official suspect in this case, and the Chicago Police Department states that there will be a briefing later this morning to update us on the investigation. We will keep you posted #Roommates!
