Kim Mathers was arrested Tuesday for driving
with a revoked license.
The former wife of Eminem and a female companion
were arrested, questioned and released pending a further investigation, after
two Ziploc bags containing a white powdery substance were found.
St. Clair Shores, Michigan Police Chief Frank
Troester downplayed the arrest, saying that the incident was merely a routine
"If it wasn't for the fact that Mrs. Mathers
is the ex-wife of Eminem, no one would be interested in the incident,"
Troester told the Macomb Daily.
Mathers was driving a white Cadillac Escalade
on Interstate 94 near 12 Mile Road shortly after 2:30 a.m. Mathers allegedly
failed to yield to cars in the center lane, just before a construction barrier.
Troester said that other vehicles had been pulled
over for the same infraction.
As for the powdery substance, it was sent to
the Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory to be analyzed.
"If the analysis is positive, the information
will be turned over to the (Macomb County) prosecutor's office for a warrant."
