Actor Who Played Suge Knight Could Get Assault Charges
R. Marcos Taylor—who portrayed the infamous former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight in both Straight Outta Compton and Lifetime’s Surviving Compton TV movie—has been arrested on assault charges.
According to TMZ, Mr. Taylor got into an argument at a Carrabba’s Italian Grill in New Jersey that ended up with him punching the Carrabba’s manager in the face multiple times. It’s been reported that it took a number of the Italian Grill’s employees to drag him out of the restaurant, and to make matters worse, at some point he allegedly hit a woman on the side of her head.
As far as Taylor’s account of the events, he told TMZ that he is the one who got jumped and his attorney says it was only in an act of self-defense that anything went down, but he didn’t lay hand or foot on anyone.
