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 assault after allegedly attacking employees at an Italian restaurant.
Sources say on August 9, the stuntman got into a heated argument with the manager of a Carrabba’s Italian Grill in Green Brook, NJ — which led to Taylor punching the manager multiple times in the face.
“Don’t believe everything you read #thatismyjudgement”
Restaurant employees, however, say Taylor started an all out brawl — even punching a woman in the head — in the restaurant, which led to employees dragging him out of the building. Taylor was reportedly charged with 4 counts of assault, 1 count of criminal mischief and 1 count of disorderly conduct.
Sounds like an intense few days — maybe it was just method acting that went too far?
