Charges against Eminem dropped

Assault complaint last week will not be taken any further

Eminem has seen assault charges against him dropped this week (July 17).

Detroit police have revealed that a man who claimed that the rapper punched him outside a strip club in the city in the early hours of last Thursday (July 13) has dropped his complaint.

According to BBC News, Sergeant Eren Stephens Bell of Detroit Police Department commented: “He said the suspect had struck him several times.”

The Cheetah’s Strip Club, where the incident was alleged to have taken place, was on the infamous Eight Mile Road that divides the rich and poor communities. As well as the name of Eminem’s 2002 movie, it was the location of the club where his best friend Proof was shot and killed in April.
