‘Straight Outta Compton’ actor charged with terroristic threats

The “Straight Outta Compton” actor who was charged with assault earlier this month after an altercation at a New Jersey restaurant was reportedly also arrested one day earlier after he unleashed a threat-filled tirade at a bank.

R. Marcos Taylor allegedly flipped out at a TD Bank in New Jersey on Aug. 8 after visiting the venue to fix a problem with a bank card, prompting police to come to the scene, TMZ reported.

During the incident, the actor — who played Suge Knight in the 2015 N.W.A. biopic — told an employee that “I will f—ing kill you,” one witness told the celebrity gossip site.

Taylor then reportedly got into a fighting stance when police showed up at the venue, leading to him get pepper sprayed and later charged with terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice, according to TMZ.

It’s unclear what exactly set off Taylor during the incident. The report did not specify which TD Bank location in New Jersey that the incident occurred.

The following day, Taylor was arrested at a Carrabba’s restaurant in Green Brook, N.J., as reported by TMZ on Wednesday.

Taylor was hit with four counts of assault charges — as well one for criminal mischief and another for disorderly conduct — after he allegedly punched two people during a skirmish in the parking lot, according to the gossip site.

A woman was allegedly hit in the side of the head by Taylor, according to the report.

The actor’s lawyers told TMZ that Taylor did not punch or kick a single person in that incident, and only tossed an employee out of self-defense, while Taylor told the outlet he was jumped.

Taylor was previously arrested in May for assault after a dispute involving a security guard at a Miami-area hotel.
