Eminem: Fingerprint

On June 3, 2000, Eminem spotted his wife, Kimberly, in a parking lot at the Hot Rocks Caf? in Warren, Michigan hugging and kissing another man (John Guerra). Though the act was allegedly a friendly hug, Eminem pistol-whipped Guerra and later wrote a song ("Cleanin' Out My Closet") about the incident ("The smartest shit I done/Was to take the bullets out of that gun/'Cause I would've killed them...").

At 2:20 a.m., Hot Rocks security called the police, who took Eminem and Kim into custody. It was a crazy night, Eminem later recalled. Among the most surreal moments? While they were fingerprinting him, the police asked Eminem for his autograph!

[Kim was the subject of the tracks "'97 Bonnie and Clyde" (on The Slim Shady LP) and "Kim" (on The Marshall Mathers LP). In both songs, she ends up having her throat brutally slit.]
