Eminem's Ex Faces Possible Cocaine Rap

06/12/2003 at 11:35 AM EDT

Eminem's off-again, on-again ex-wife Kimberly Mathers faces possible cocaine possession charges after she was pulled over early Tuesday morning by Michigan police, who allegedly found two bags containing a white powder in her white Cadillac Escalade, the Smoking Gun reports.

Police tell the Web site that the incident occurred at 2:30 a.m. along a highway about 15 miles north of Detroit, with officers making the arrest after they determined that Mathers, 28 -- who was in the vehicle with another woman -- was driving with a denied or revoked license.

Upon investigating the vehicle, police discovered in the glove compartment a small plastic bag that allegedly contained a white powder suspected of being cocaine, said a police spokesman. A second small bag (with more allegedly suspicious white powder) was also found "within her property" and was sent with the other bag to the Michigan State Police crime lab for testing.

Mathers -- who reportedly is back living with her ex-husband and their 7-year-old daughter, Hailie Jade -- is currently free pending charges, says the Smoking Gun.

Nearly two years ago, Kim Mathers was arrested in suburban Detroit for having an outstanding warrant, after local residents phoned police when they thought a jet-ski accident occurred involving Mathers and a friend. Once police found the two women, "Both of them appeared to have been drinking," said Macomb County (Mich.) Sheriff Mark A. Hackel at the time.
