Suge Knight’s legal troubles continue.
Knight has been indicted on felony charges of making criminal threats by a grand jury in Los Angeles County. He was reportedly unhappy with his portrayal in the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton, TMZ reports. So the record producer, music executive, and founder of the iconic Death Row Records allegedly sent death threats to F. Gary Gray, the director of the movie, through text messages. Court records obtained by Variety show that the crime was allegedly committed on August 8, 2014. Suge will be arraigned on Thursday.
It’s just the latest legal incident involving Knight. Back in January 2015, he was arrested on murder charges, which were also tied to the production of Straight Outta Compton. Knight allegedly ran over a man named Terry Carter with his vehicle on the set of the film. He is currently behind bars awaiting trial on those charges.
Straight Outta Compton, which was released in theaters in August 2015, grossed more than $200 million at the box office. The biographical film received a generally positive reception from critics and maintains a solid 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
