Smollett Pleaded No Contest To Lying to Police During 2007 DUI Stop

(Los Angeles, CA-AP) — Records show “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has previously lied to police during a DUI traffic stop in Los Angeles. The misdemeanor complaint from 2007 says Smollett gave the name of his brother and signed a false name on the promise to appear in court.

Smollett was later charged with false impersonation, driving under the influence and driving without a license. Smollett completed the terms of his sentence along with an alcohol education and treatment program in May 2008. Smollett is now suspected of faking a hate crime against himself after his two attackers say they were hired by him.
