Actor Who Played Suge Knight in ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Movie Charged With Four Counts of Assault
R. Marcos Taylor, the man responsible for playing the notorious Suge Knight in 2015's N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton has once again found himself in trouble. According to the folks at TMZ, the actor has been charged with multiple accounts of assault after punching two people a couple of weeks ago.
The celebrity gossip site reports the incident went down back on Aug. 9 when Taylor found himself engaged in a heated argument with a manager at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Green Brook, N.J. From there, things escalated, and Taylor allegedly punched the man in the face repeatedly.
In the ensuing chaos, several people dragged Taylor out of the restaurant and a big brawl followed. During the commotion, Taylor apparently punched a woman on the side of her head. Taylor's now been charged with four counts of assault, one count of criminal mischief and one count of disorderly conduct.
TMZ reached out to Taylor, who claimed he was jumped in the Carrabba's parking lot. His lawyer claims he didn't punch or kick anyone and that he was only defending himself when he "tossed" one of the employees.
This is the second time in the last few months Taylor's found himself in trouble for violence. Back in May, the actor was arrested for slamming a bodyguard in a Miami beach resort. He disputed those claims too. We'll have to wait and see how this one will play out.
