R. Marcos Taylor as Suge Knight

Actor R. Marcos Taylor, who played Suge Knight in the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, has taken the role a bit seriously... after being charged with multiple counts of assault.

According to TMZ, Taylor got into an argument wth the manager of Carrabba's Italian Grill in Green Brook, NJ earlier this month... which escalated and got physical.

He reportedly punched the manager in the face several times, before several employees removed him from the restaurant. But, it didn't stop there.

A fight ensued outside and Taylor allegedly punched a woman in the head.

He's been charged with four counts of assault, one count of criminal mischief and one count of disorderly conduct.

Taylor's camp tells TMZ he was jumped in the parking lot during the incident, but offered no further details. Furthermore, he claims he never struck anybody.
