Police in the United States released more than 1000 files from the investigation into Jussie Smollett's claim he was attacked by two men, including video footage that for the first time shows the Empire actor with a thin, white rope wrapped around his neck that he told detectives was a noose.
CBS Chicago obtained the latter footage, which runs about two minutes and shows police entering Smollett's Chicago apartment. Smollett is found by the officers with ropes strung around his neck, which he says were put on by the attackers. One officer asks Jussie Smollett if he wishes to remove the noose and the actor does so.
