Rapper Charged After Michigan Fight

Updated:
DETROIT (AP) — Rapper Eminem was charged Tuesday with two felony weapons counts stemming from a weekend fight which prosecutors say started after the Grammy winner saw another man kissing his wife.

Eminem is charged with one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of assault with a deadly weapon, said Macomb County Prosecutor Carl Marlinga.

The 27-year-old performer, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in Warren District Court.

The fight happened about 2:20 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a bar in Warren, the rapper's hometown.

Marlinga said Eminem hit John Guerra over the head with a 9mm Smith & Wesson gun after he saw Guerra kissing his wife, Kimberly Mathers, 27. The gun was not loaded, he said.

Kimberly Mathers told the Detroit Free Press her husband ``overreacted'' to a friendly kiss between friends.

Eminem's lawyer, Howard Hertz, said his client planned to let the judge enter an innocent plea for him in court Wednesday.

In February, Eminem won a Grammy for best rap album for his debut release, ``The Slim Shady LP,'' and another Grammy for best rap solo performance for the hit single ``My Name Is.''

Eminem has the No. 1 album in the country, ``The Marshall Mathers LP.''
