"CHICAGO (CBS) — Two brothers being questioned in the Jussie Smollett case are now under arrest, police said.

The men – Obabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo – were arrested Friday in connection with an alleged attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett. Two sources with intimate knowledge of the investigation tells CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards the attack on Smollett was potentially orchestrated by the actor himself, and involved two other men."

Chicago police said the two men were arrested Friday and that they have a "relationship" with the "Empire" actor.

UPDATE: Let's make a deal...
“Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete.”

Smollett had insisted on GMA that the then-unidentified, shadowy figures on the video were the masked, racist “strangers” who attacked him.

But Chicago police realized the two men on the video are Abel and Ola — Smollett’s close friends.

LAST WORD: The whole sad story
