The probe could be handed to a grand jury this week, according to the celebrity news website TMZ, which reported on Tuesday that the actor's role on Empire has been curtailed. Police have requested another interview with Smollett, who has reportedly denied the requests repeatedly. The actor said in a statement he's "victimised by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators".
Smollett was pulled over and gave officer's the name "Jake", which also happens to be the same name as one of his siblings, Variety reports. Guglielimi said police reached out to Smollett's attorney, but said an interview has not been conducted. If the feds find that Smollett did send that letter to himself and can prove it, he could also be facing federal charges separate from the case that Chicago PD is building.
The men, who were identified to multiple media outlets by their attorney as Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo, were held for almost 48 hours on suspicion of assaulting Smollett before being released Friday.
On Feb. 14, Chicago police said local media reports that the attack against Smollett was a hoax are unconfirmed.
Jussie and his attorneys anticipate being further updated by Chicago Police Department on the status of the investigation and will continue to cooperate. He pleaded no contest to a reduced charge and took an alcohol education and treatment program.
Smollett claimed that on January 29 he was attacked by two masked men as he was walking home from a Subway restaurant.
