No Assault Charges Against Rapper Eminem
Police said the man allegedly assaulted, identified in reports as Miad J., accused the rapper of punching him several times in the bathroom of The Cheetah's strip club early Thursday (July 13) morning on Detroit's 8 Mile Road.
Miad J. claimed that the rapper was using the bathroom when a man started talking to Eminem, prompting of his bodyguards to tell the man to be quiet.
"I said 'the guys not saying nothing, he's just talking to him, he's not saying anything,'" Miad told reporters shortly after the incident. "Eminem got done and boom. He started swinging. I wasn't even expecting it. I was just minding my own business, taking a leak."
According to reports, Detroit Police Department officials do not know why Miad J. did not press charges.
