Guy Breaks Into Eminem’s House. Threatens To Kill Him. Walks?
In April 2020, a 28-year, Matthew Hughes, broke into rapper/actor Eminem's home in Clinton Township, Michigan. Slim Shady, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, was actually home at the time and sleeping. The rap star woke up to the sound of glass crashing to the floor. According to authorities, Hughes gain entry into the home when he threw a brick paver through the back window.
Luckily Hughs wasn't armed when he encountered the rapper. Eminem confronted him and asked him what he was doing, to which the man replied he was there to kill him. The stars security rushed to his aid and detained Hughes, without incident until police arrived on the scene. Eminem's home surveillance captured the man on camera prior to gaining access through the back window. Check out the creeping footage below.
The Detroit News reports Matthew Hughs was arrested and originally charged with first-degree home invasion, malicious destruction of property, which carries a fine between $1,000 and $20,000, and assault of a jail employee. Hughes pleaded no contest to a second-degree home invasion in August after copping a plea deal with prosecutors.
The young man's attorney's disclosed he suffers from "mental issues" and confirmed his illness was a result of the home invasion. Evidently, the defense was able to produce evidence to support that claim, because Hughes was able to cope with the plea deal. Long story short, a Macomb County Circuit Court judge sentenced him to five years of probation last week, with time served as part of a deal with prosecutors. Hughes only spent 524 days behind bars. Hopefully, his attorneys will see that he gets the help he needs so he doesn't have another "mental issue" and show up at someone else's house. That is so scary.
