Straight into the slammer… twice?

Actor R. Marcos Taylor (above), who played Suge Knight in the film Straight Outta Compton, was arrested earlier this month after going on a rampage at a New Jersey bank.

According to TMZ, police were called to a TD Bank on August 8 after Taylor got violent, threatening to kill employees and even lunging at cops.

Law enforcement officials say the actor blew up over an issue with his bank card and had been hostile from the start. After losing his patience with an employee, he reportedly said "I will fucking kill you."

When cops arrived on the scene, the martial artist reportedly got into a fighting stance, prompting officers to pepper spray and arrest him.

Taylor was charged with terroristic threats, obstruction of justice, and disorderly conduct — but apparently, his week of troublemaking wasn't over.

TMZ also reported that the very next day, Taylor was arrested for

Some people can't seem to stay out of trouble…

According to TMZ, Suge Knight will be arraigned on Thursday for making a death threat against Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray during production.

The Grand Jury indictment — dated February 7, 2017 — reads:

"On or about August 8, 2014, Suge… threatened to commit a crime which would result in death and great bodily injury to Felix Gary Gray."

The former CEO of Death Row Records was reportedly unhappy with his portrayal in the 2015 film, and sent the threat by text.

On that August day, Gray spoke to authorities at the Slauson Swap Meet where filming occurred.

According to insiders, Suge believes he is being set up by law enforcement in case his murder charge doesn't go through. In case you forgot, in January 2015, Knight allegedly ran over his friend Terry Carter in the parking lot of a Compton burger stand.

What a revelation…

On September 7, 1996, the world was shocked when Tupac Shakur was murdered in Las Vegas after a white Cadillac pulled up to his car and shot him four times.

According to a signed affidavit featured in the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, Suge Knight — who was in the vehicle when the All Eyez on Me rapper was killed — confirms the theory that Reggie White Jr. (former Death Row Records security chief) and Sharitha Knight (Suge's ex-wife) were responsible for Tupac's death.

Suge's lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper wrote in the statement:

Suge Knight's Son Speaks ALL About His Father's Controversial Sentencing

Suge Knight

Suge Knight Jr. continues to defend his father's legacy.

As you know, Suge Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015. The Death Row Records label head is accused of intentionally running over Carter in the parking lot of a Compton burger stand, something his camp claims was done in self defense.

As the trial continues to face postponements, Suge Jr. is speaking out against his father's unfair treatment in prison, the ongoing trial, and how the 21-year-old intends to defend Knight's legacy.

In a lengthy interview with The Tomorrow Show on Thursday night, the former student — who left college in Nashville after receiving threats following his father's depiction in Straight Outta Compton – went as far as to say that without his father, there would be no Tupac, Snoop Dogg, or maybe even Dr. Dre:

"Honestly, it's no disrespect for them but you know there wouldn't obviously be no Tupac, obviously no Snoop. If we went further there probably wouldn't be Dre Beats."

When discussing the trial, Suge Jr. believes this is more of a "civil rights case" and how black people are wrongfully convicted of crimes, and less about his father:

Suge Knight Files A New Lawsuit Claiming Dr. Dre Once Hired A Hitman To Kill Him!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersDr. DreViolence

Either Suge Knight is filing a lawsuit, or he's the subject of one.

According to TMZ, Suge is suing longtime enemy Dr. Dre for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill him back in 2014. The suit follows many years of controversies, arrests, and other legal issues for the rapper.

While Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015, he isn't letting incarceration get in the way of his revenge.

According to the scandalized figure, he entered a "lifelong" business agreement with former Death Row Records partner back when the two were friendly. S.K. reasons this gave him a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings, which includes his popular business Beats By Dre.

The 50-year-old went on to allege that the mogul tried to cut him out of the Beats By Dre deal after Apple bought the company. Apparently Apple did NOT want Suge's name and sordid history attached to the project.

Given the tricky predicament, Mr. Knight claims the celeb hired a hitman to shoot him at a party over VMAs weekend. Suge went on to survive the seven shots to his stomach and the shooter was never caught despite there being thirty-seven cameras at the club.

In response to the suit, Dre's lawyer shot back:

"Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."

Wow! The 51-year-old's legal rep sounds PISSED.

So, who do YOU believe in this mess?

Seems like Dr. Dre is NOT happy with an upcoming TV movie that portrays him in a not-so-kind light!

Lifetime is set to run a Sony Pictures flick called Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le that apparently portrays the Chronic rapper as a woman beater who knocks his ex-girlfriend senseless.

And now, Dre is threatening a lawsuit if that movie ever airs!!

Ice Cube & Dr. Dre Dismissed From Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Suge Knight's Fatal Hit-And-Run

no title

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are officially off the hook for Terry Carter's tragic death, according to TMZ.

You might recall, the man was sadly killed after being run over by Suge Knight, who had just gotten into a fight with two crew members from the Straight Outta Compton set.

After the devastating loss, Terry's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Suge, but also named Ice Cube and Dre as defendants, arguing that they hired gang members to keep the now-jailed Death Row Records co-founder away from the movie's set.

They believe Knight's getting turned away is what caused the Compton native to get so angry that he fatally backed over his friend.

However, a judge recently dismissed the Ride Along 2 star and the Beats Electronics CEO from the suit, saying it didn't make any sense to blame them for Suge's actions.

The lawsuit still stands against the former Death Row Records exec, who also has a murder trial pending for the hit-and-run.
