Some people never learn and Jussie Smollett is one of those people. In 2007, Smollett was stopped for suspicion of DWI. He received a ticket for DUI and driving without a valid license. He lied to the police about his name and he wrote his brother’s name on the ticket’s promise to appear section. Fortunately for his brother, he was found out and charged with impersonation as well as the other two charges. He received two years of probation. And why else is this important? Well, because that means that Smollett is not a first time offender and entitled to special consideration.
“A California misdemeanor complaint against Jussie Smollett shows the actor was accused of identifying himself as his younger brother in 2007 when a Los Angeles police officer pulled him over on suspicion of driving under the influence,” The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Smollett identified himself as his younger brother, actor and celebrity chef Jake Smollett, after being pulled over and wrote his brother’s name on the promise to appear in court, the AP reported.
That wasn’t a bright idea because the actor ended up being charged with false impersonation as well as driving under the influence and driving without a valid license, the AP reported.
It was bad enough that Smollett apparently orchestrated a fake hate crime and involved his friends in the hoax, but it looks like he’s the kind of person to throw his own brother under the bus when he’s in trouble.
Smollett obviously has some problems when it comes to telling the truth. A whole slew of Democrat politicians and celebrities are looking pretty foolish over this.
