Detroit Man Withdraws Assault Claim Against Eminem
According to an MTV News report, the Detroit man who accused Eminem of assaulting him in a strip club bathroom last week has dropped the complaint against the rapper. Although the Detroit Police department expressed an interest in speaking with Eminem, he was never questioned and was not named as a suspect in the crime. The man who made the accusation, identified by local Detroit station WXYZ simply as Miad J., claimed that he was assaulted in the bathroom of the Cheetah strip club on 8 Mile Road after he came to the defense of another man who had approached the rapper but was turned away by ßbodyguards. The Detroit Free Press confirmed that an altercation did occur at the club early Thursday morning, but would not release the names of any suspects or the alleged victim. Cheetah Club staff members however, did confirm to the paper that Eminem was involved in the incident. According to MTV's report, a Detroit Police Department spokesperson did not disclose why the alleged victim withdrew his complaint.
