“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was in police custody in Chicago Thursday morning after turning himself in overnight. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and other officials brief reporters on the Smollett investigation and the details of the elaborate “hate crime” hoax.

Superintendent Johnson revealed that Smollett paid two brothers he knew $3,500 to fake the attack in the 300 block of East North Water Street around 2 a.m. Jan. 29, Johnson said, adding that detectives have the check for the money. The superintendent called the scheme “shameful” and that the stunt was staged because Smollett was dissatisfied with is salary for the Fox show “Empire.”
