The City of Chicago on Thursday filed a lawsuit against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett.

Chicago said in court that Smollett owes more than $130,000 to compensate the city for the cost of police overtime as authorities investigated an incident he reported, according to the suit's complaint, which was published in full by the Chicago Sun-Times

"The City is entitled to recovery of the costs of necessary services provided by the City in order to provide services in investigating and responding to Defendant’s violations of the [Municipal Code of Chicago]," the complaint states. 

Smollett told police earlier this year that he was the victim of an attack in which two men yelled racist and homophobic slurs at him and also used language in support of President TrumpDonald John TrumpUS reimposes UN sanctions on Iran amid increasing tensions Jeff Flake: Republicans 'should hold the same position' on SCOTUS vacancy as 2016 Trump supporters chant 'Fill that seat' at North Carolina rally MORE. Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson later said that the reported crime was a hoax and that Smollett made it up "because he was dissatisfied with his salary." 

Smollett was indicted on multiple felony charges last month in connection with the alleged false report. Prosecutors dropped the charges against him a few weeks later. 

"After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollet’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case," the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said in a statement. 

Smollett's lawyers said after the charges were dropped that their client's "record has been wiped clean."
