An officer who responded to Eminem’s house for a home invasion back in April testified in court Wednesday that the home invader said he was there to kill the famous rapper. This came during a preliminary examination in Macomb Country District Court for Matthew David Hughes, the man accused of entering the rapper’s home late at night with the intent to kill him.
The incident happened On April 5, and Hughes has remained in jail since it happened. Adam Hackstock, the officer who responded said that Marshall Mathers (Eminem) woke up to a man standing behind him.
“When Mr. Mathers asked him why he was there,” Hackstock said, “he was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him.”
Officer Testified In Court That The Man Who Broke Into Eminem’s Home Was There To “Kill Him”
Hughes is charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property. Hughes threw a brick through one of Mathers windows and climbed through it to gain access. The officer continued on with his testimony saying that when he arrived at Mathers’ house that night, he found a security guard wrestling with Hughes.
Strangely enough, Mathers walked the man through several rooms in his house before getting him outside. Hackstack also said Hughes wasn’t carrying a weapon.
It sounds like the man broke into his house with intent, but somehow, Mathers was able to talk him down and probably cooled him off by showing him around the house until the police could get there.
Hughes is currently being held on a $50,000 bond. Prosecutors also believe that Hughes is homeless and that ‘mental issues’ maybe some reasoning behind Hughes’s actions.
