After the arrest of Jussie Smollett this morning, the Superintendent of Chicago Police gave a presser on everything that happened between the phony attack and today’s arrest of Smollett.
You can watch the full press conference below:
It runs just over 30 minutes as the Superintendent explains that Smollett was unhappy with his salary and that’s why he sent himself a letter and staged the attack.
Also, here’s Smollett’s booking photo that was released shortly before the press conference:
