Best-selling rapper Eminem was charged with more weapons counts in Michigan on Thursday, this time for allegedly brandishing a gun in a confrontation with a member of the rival group Insane Clown Posse. The latest accusations came a day after the 27-year-old Grammy winner, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and assault with a deadly weapon, both felonies. According to the new charges, Eminem got in a dispute Saturday with Douglas Dail of Insane Clown Posse outside a stereo shop in Royal Oak. Oakland County Prosecutor David Gorcyca said Eminem and Dail exchanged words before Eminem stepped from his car and pulled a pistol. Eminem did not point the gun at Dail but threatened him, Gorcyca said. Eminem was charged with felony possession of a concealed weapon and misdemeanor brandishing of a firearm. He was freed Thursday after posting $1,000 of his $10,000 bail.
