TV actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a special prosecutor in Illinois on six counts of lying to police.
The Empire actor said he was the subject of a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago last year.
Authorities have accused him of staging the attack on himself for publicity, something he has always denied.
In March, after an emergency court appearance, all charges against Smollett were dropped.
Smollett now faces six counts of disorderly conduct.
He is due in court on February 24.
