Actor Richard Marcus Taylor arrested for alleged assault

Straight Outta Compton actor Richard Marcus Taylor was reportedly arrested on Monday (15May17) for allegedly assaulting a security guard.
The actor and stuntman, who played music mogul Suge Knight in the N.W.A. biopic, is said to have got into an altercation with the guard on Sunday night after he asked the actor to remove his foot from a table as he relaxed in the lobby of the Marenas Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
After Taylor refused and told the guard to “leave him alone”, the guard instructed the hotel staff to call the police and he was allegedly confronted by the towering star, who pushed him to the ground and a “full physical fight ensued,” the arrest report said, according to the Miami Herald newspaper.
When police arrived at the scene, they allegedly saw Taylor “pick the victim up and slam him to the ground” before officers had to physically separate the pair.
Taylor was arrested and charged with misdemeanour battery and is being held at a jail in Miami-Dade County.
The actor, who was credited as R. Marcus Taylor in the 2015 movie, has also had roles in TV shows Luke Cage and Sons of Anarchy and will play Armie in the upcoming Edgar Wright movie Baby Driver.
