Jussie Smollett — who is suspected of faking a hate crime against himself — pleaded no contest in 2007 to providing false information to police during a DUI stop in LA, according to a report.
The misdemeanor complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in September that year says that Smollett gave the name of his brother, Jake, when he was asked by an officer.
He also signed a false name on the promise to appear in court.
Smollett also was later charged with false impersonation, driving under the influence and driving without a license.
Court records show he pleaded no contest to the reduced charge of giving false information, in addition to DUI and driving without a valid license counts.Read more: https://pagesix.com/2019/02/20/jussie-smollett-once-lied-to-cops-during-dui-arrest/
