Chicago police release video of Jussie Smollett with rope around his neck

Actor Jussie Smollett

Chicago police have now released hundreds of files and nearly 70 hours of video footage from the investigation into Jussie Smollett's claim back in January that he was attacked by two men - a claim that police later characterized as a hoax.

Police body-cam video shows Smollett - with his face blurred - wearing a white rope that he told detectives his attackers looped around his neck. When one of the officers asked Smollett if he wanted to take the rope off of his neck, the 37-year-old actor did while stating: "Yeah. I do. I just wanted you all to see it."
