Rapper Eminem detained a homeless man who broke into his home at 4 a.m.

Clinton Township, MI – Rapper Eminem detained an intruder into his home on April 5 until his security force showed up.

Eminem, whose name is Marshall Mathers, woke up after his home alarm system went off, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Eminem, 47, confronted home invader Matthew Hughes in his living room. The Detroit Free Press reported that the intruder was “verbally and physically detained by Marshall, while security was alerted.”

A spokesman for the rapper told ET that it was Eminem that first detained the suspect. The spokesman refuted earlier reports that Eminem’s security team had fallen asleep.

According to police records, Hughes threw a paving stone threw a glass-plated kitchen door in the back of the rapper’s home after Hughes according the security detail that was positioned in front of the property.

“Eminem was at his home in compliance with the governor’s stay-home, stay-safe order,” Clinton Township Police Captain Richard Maierle said, according to the Detroit Free Press. “Security was alerted, came in, took him into custody, and nobody got hurt.”

Hughes, who is homeless, was charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of a building. He was held on a $50,000 bond, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Eminem’s latest album Music To Be Murdered By was certified as gold in the United Kingdom, according to Forbes. That was the first album released in 2020 to go gold in the U.K.

Earlier this year, Music To Be Murdered By debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, according to Billboard.com.

It was Eminem’s 10th No. 1 on the Billboard 200. He was just the sixth music artist to reach that total. He joins The Beatles (19 No. 1 albums), Jay-Z (14 No. 1 albums), Bruce Springsteen and Barbara Streisand (who each had 11 No. 1 albums) and Elvis Presley (10 No. 1 albums).
