One Straight Outta Compton actor is having a very bad month.

R. Marcos Taylor, the man who played Suge Knight in the film, reportedly went on a rampage at a New Jersey bank. According to TMZ, he threatened to kill employees and lunged at police.

Police say they were called to a TD Bank on August 8 to deescalate Taylor. Apparently, he had an issue with a bank card and needed a new one. Employees claim he was hostile from the jump.

A witness says the actor told an employee, “I will f**king kill you.” When law enforcement arrived, Taylor was in a “fighting stance,” so they pepper sprayed him in-order to arrest him and take him in.

R. Marcos Taylor was charged with terroristic threats, obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct. This incident was just a day before he was arrested for assault after allegedly attacking employees at an Italian restaurant.
