According to NBC, the city is demanding that the ‘Empire’ star cough up $130,106.15 to make up for overtime hours that were spent on the investigation.
Bill McCaffrey, a spokesman for the city government’s legal department, confirmed the news to the news station.
“The city feels this is a reasonable and legally just amount to help offset the cost of the investigation,” McCaffrey told NBC 5.
The letter written by the city claims that both the city and the CPD “take seriously those who make false statements to the police, thereby diverting resources from other investigations and undermining the criminal justice system.
“Chicago police reviewed video and physical evidence and conducted several interviews, expending resources that could have been used for other investigations,” the letter reads. “Ultimately, the Chicago police investigation revealed that you knowingly filed a false report and had in fact orchestrated your own attack.”

Smollett has also been threatened with prosecution if he does not pay up in a timely fashion.
