The former sister-in-law of rap superstar Eminem is being held in the Macomb County Jail in lieu of a $5,000 bond for a probation violation after she was accused of kidnapping, police said.

Dawn Marie Scott, 31, was arrested Tuesday night on Detroit’s east side with the 7-year-old boy in the vehicle she was driving. Police said she was taken into custody after a brief foot chase and then turned over to Macomb County authorities.

Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said Scott was charged Wednesday with probation violation, and additional charges may be coming.

“We’re looking at filing possible charges of child endangerment and taking a vehicle without permission. We should know more (today) on what action we may or may not take,” Hackel said Wednesday evening.

It was not immediately known why Scott was on probation or what terms she may have violated. The arrest warrant stemmed from 41B District Court in Clinton Township.

Dawn Scott is the twin sister of Kim Mathers, 31, the former wife of Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers.

Macomb investigators said Dawn Scott has a substance abuse problem and lost custody of her son in recent years. Kim Mathers and their mother, Kathleen Sluck, have guardianship of the boy.

Scott lives in Deckerville but was visiting the Macomb Township home where Kim Mathers lives Wednesday when the alleged incident occurred.

Police said Kim Mathers and Sluck went to a store, leaving Scott behind with the boy. Sluck’s husband was sleeping at the time.

Scott allegedly put the boy into the husband’s Lincoln Navigator and drove to Detroit, leaving behind a note indicating she had to pick up money from a friend. When Mathers and her mother returned home, they called the sheriff’s office.

In the 911 tape of the call Sluck made to police, Kim Mathers can be heard in the background trying to find her sister. At one point, Sluck said: “She’s a real bad drug addict,” referring to Scott.

Detroit police were notified of Scott’s possible location and spotted the vehicle at a BP gas station on Harper at Cadieux. They tried to stop Scott, who got out of the car and ran before officers apprehended her.

The child, who was not hurt, was turned over to Mathers and her mother.

In a jail booking photo released by the sheriff’s office under a Freedom of Information request, Scott has bruises on her face. Police said Scott claimed she was beaten by a friend earlier this week.

In October, Marshall Mathers was cleared of allegations of domestic violence for poking his 13-year-old niece in the head with his finger. The niece, a daughter of Scott, is under his guardianship.

In that case, Marshall Mathers became angry with the niece over a school outfit. The two were talking on the phone when the niece began speaking over Eminem and then hung up on him. Eminem later confronted the niece when the alleged poking took place.

When they were teenagers, Kim Mathers and Dawn Scott stayed with Marshall Mathers and his mother, Debbie Mathers-Briggs, when they had run away from home. Kim Mathers later started dating Eminem, and they married in June 1999 in St. Joseph, Mo.

About a year later, Eminem filed for divorce. The couple retained joint legal and physical custody of their daughter, Hailie Jade Scott, as part of a divorce order.

The two reunited in 2005 and married a second time Jan. 16. Their marriage ended 82 days later when Eminem filed for divorce.
