Chicago Police Launch Internal Investigation In Jussie Smollett Case

In yet ANOTHER twist in the ongoing legal saga of Empire star Jussie Smollett, the Chicago Police Department is now investigating…themselves.

According to CNN, an internal investigation has been launched due to reports of folks in the department leaking incorrect information about the case. In a statement, Sergeant Rocco Alioto with the CPD Office of Communications said the following:

“I would like to point out that a lot of the information out there was inaccurate and there were numerous agencies involved in this investigation. As a standard procedure when there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities.”

According to CBS 2 Chicago, the leaks were in regards to Smollett’s medical records at Northwestern Hospital, where he was treated following the alleged attack. As a result, at least a dozen hospital staff members were fired for inappropriately having access to his files.

Smollett is currently facing a disorderly conduct charge for allegedly staging the attack. He is due back in court on March 14.
