Looks like one actor took his role in Straight Outta Compton too seriously. The man who played Suge Knight has been charged with multiple counts of assault.
According to TMZ, on August 9, R. Marcos Taylor, who played Suge Knight in 2015's Straight Outta Compton, was at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Green Brook, New Jersey. He reportedly got into an argument with the manager — no word on the reason why — and punched him in the face several times. Allegedly, employees dragged Marcos out of the restaurant and he then punched a woman on the side of the head. TMZ stated, "Marcos was charged with four counts of assault, one count of criminal mischief and one count of disorderly conduct."
Marcos told TMZ that he got jumped in the parking lot that night but gave no further details. Marcos's attorney claims he "never punched or kicked anyone and was defending himself when he tossed one of the employees."
Well, damn. Let's hope that Suge Knight role was just acting!
