Kim Mathers Arrested, "Powdery Substance" Found

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

traffic stop.

"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."
