MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) – A man twice convicted of breaking into homes owned by rapper Eminem is in trouble again after violating his probation by failing to show up for a probation appointment and by allegedly assaulting a security guard at a mall in the southeastern Michigan community of Taylor.
Matthew Hughes, 28, pleaded guilty this week in Macomb County circuit court to failing to show up for a probation appointment in September, but pleaded not guilty to the assault charge , reported the Macomb Daily. He was being held at the Macomb County Jail, according to the jail’s website. The newspaper reported that no details were available regarding the alleged assault.
The parole violation came just days after Hughes was sentenced to probation after serving 524 days in jail for breaking into Eminem’s home in Clinton Township in April 2020 and threatening to kill him. Eminem, who was at the house at the time, took Hughes out, where security guards held him until police arrived.
Ten months before this incident, he entered another property in Rochester Hills in search of Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers. He was sentenced to 90 days in prison after pleading guilty to an illegal entry charge.
