LISTEN: 911 Call Of Jussie Smollett’s Alleged Attack Is Released
Police are beginning to release documents around Jussie Smollett’s case, including the initial 911 calls that reported the alleged hate crime attack.
Two calls, obtained by The Post, were made by Jussie’s creative manager, Frank Gatson, in the middle of the night — reportedly, about 20 minutes after the actor says he was attacked by two white men in MAGA hats on the streets of Chicago.
“I work with an artist — I don’t really want to say his name — but he states that [redaction] he went to Subway he was walking by and some guys somebody jumped him or something like that, and I just want to report it and make sure that he’s alright,” Frank told the operator in the first call.
When asked why Jussie wasn’t calling the cops himself, Frank responded, “He was cool, he didn’t want me to call you guys.”
When the operator said that Jussie is the only person who can file a report, Frank replied: “He’s definitely gonna make the report. I’m gonna make him make the report.”
Frank also added that Jussie wasn’t in need of medical attention: “I just think he’s startled. I’m scared and I don’t know what it is — They put a noose around his neck. They didn’t do anything with it, but put it around his neck. That’s pretty f–ked up to me — sorry for saying it like that.”
Sixteen minutes later, Frank called again to alert the operator that the cops hadn’t arrived. “I reported I’ve been waiting on the police,” he said. “I thought they’d be here by now.”
