Last week Chicago prosecutors unexpectedly dropped 16 felony disorderly conduct charges against actor Jussie Smollett.
Smollett had until Thursday to reimburse the city of Chicago for the investigation into what authorities say ended up being a staged attack on himself.
In a letter, the city gave him seven days to pay $130,106.15 and said if he didn’t, he might be prosecuted.
The city says he did not pay the bill.
So the city’s law department is preparing a civil complaint that will be filed against Smollett.
Smollett’s attorney responded by saying Smollett “will not be intimidated into paying” and believes the city’s demand for the money is meant to “harass and irreparably injure” Smollett.
