Kim Mathers to stand trial on cocaine possession

Mathers, 28, who awaits trial on allegations of cocaine possession during a traffic stop on Interstate 94 on June 10, now faces charges for a Sept. 29 party held in her Warren hotel room, according to police.
Acting on a report of a disorderly person, Warren officers spotted Mathers talking on a cellular phone outside her room at the Candlewood Suites shortly before 3 a.m., according to the Macomb Daily.
Police told the paper they heard yelling and loud music coming from inside. When she opened the door, officers saw several people inside, “several” open bottles of alcohol and cigarette rolling papers, according to a police report.
When officers tried to arrest a 27-year-old Warren man after spotting a small bag of suspected marijuana and a marijuana cigarette at his feet, the man quickly put a small bag in his mouth after an officer asked him to open his clenched fist, according to the paper.
Police believe the bag contained marijuana. A struggle with the man ensued, and police gave him a burst of pepper stray to subdue and handcuff him, the paper reported.
The suspect swallowed the bag, although he denied swallowing anything, according to the report.
A 28-year-old West Bloomfield man was arrested after tossing a bag of suspected Ecstasy pills on the floor, police told the paper. Ecstasy is a popular illegal synthetic drug.
Mathers apparently told police the room was in her name and that people were using marijuana and Ecstasy at the party, the police report states.
Prosecutors expect to obtain a warrant charging Mathers with maintaining a drug house.
Maintaining a drug house is a misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison, a $25,000 fine, or both.
Mathers is also expected to stand trial some time next month on charges that she had cocaine in her possession during a traffic stop on June 10.
The drug charge carries a penalty of up to five years in prison.
Mathers divorced rap star Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, in 2001. They have a daughter, Hailie Jade. Kimberly Mathers also reportedly has another daughter from a relationship after her split from Eminem.
