Miami, FL – In a case of life imitating art, actor Richard Taylor, who played Marion “Suge” Knight in the 2015 biopic Straight Outta Compton, was arrested early Monday morning (May 14) after an alleged assault at the Sunny Isles Beach resort in Miami, according to The Miami Herald.

The melee initially started over a fairly benign request by a uniformed security guard who asked the actor to remove his foot from a table in the lobby of the resort. Taylor replied, “Leave me alone,” and allegedly refused to comply. The guard then called police and while waiting for officers to arrive, the report states Taylor approached the guard and pushed him to ground before “a full physical fight ensued.”
Unfortunately for Taylor, when police arrived on the scene, they witnessed the six-foot-three, 265-pound powerhouse “pick the victim up and slam him to the ground.”
Consequently, Taylor was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge and is being held at a Miami-Dade jail. Two days earlier, it appears his vacation was going a lot smoother as
