Jussie Smollett 911 Call From Night of Alleged Attack Released

June 6, 2019

The Chicago Police Department has released the audio from the 911 recorded on the night off Jussie Smollett’s alleged attack. In audio shared by TMZ, the caller can be heard explaining that "some guys ...they jumped him.” The unidentified male friend goes on to explain that “they put a noose around his neck,” adding, “This is really f**ked up." The caller also noted that the person who was attacked was “well known,” and was initially reluctant to make the report-but said he would speak to police. Smollett was later charged with lying to police, but prosecutors dropped the charges on March 26.
