Chicago police officers examine phone records and bottle of bleach in incident of "Empire"



(WBBM NEWSRADIO) – Chicago police say that "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett has now delivered his phone records since the early morning of the attack reported two weeks ago.

Police spokesman Tom Ahern said Monday: "The Chicago police received limited and redacted phone records of the victim."

Ahern added: "These records will be analyzed by the detectives and we will be in contact with the victim if additional information is needed."

Smollett, 35, told police they put a rope around his neck and sprayed chlorine on the lower levels of the street in Streeterville.

Police said staff members at the New York Post found a bottle on the scene, but a police spokesman says "it is not clear if that is related to the incident, since it was not discovered in any of the previous surveys. "

Police say he took the bottle for analysis.

Smollett told authorities he was talking on the phone with his manager when he was attacked. The two men reportedly said that the masked attackers shouted words against gays and racists and something about "MAGA country".

Smollett is back in Chicago to work in the program.
