Kim Mathers was arrested Tuesday for driving with a revoked license.
The former wife of Eminem and a female companion were arrested, questioned and released pending a further investigation, after two Ziploc bags containing a white powdery substance were found.
St. Clair Shores, Michigan Police Chief Frank Troester downplayed the arrest, saying that the incident was merely a routine traffic stop.
"If it wasn't for the fact that Mrs. Mathers is the ex-wife of Eminem, no one would be interested in the incident," Troester told the Macomb Daily.
Mathers was driving a white Cadillac Escalade on Interstate 94 near 12 Mile Road shortly after 2:30 a.m. Mathers allegedly failed to yield to cars in the center lane, just before a construction barrier.
Troester said that other vehicles had been pulled over for the same infraction.
As for the powdery substance, it was sent to the Michigan State Police Crime Laboratory to be analyzed.
"If the analysis is positive, the information will be turned over to the (Macomb County) prosecutor's office for a warrant."
