Suge Knight has been indicted by an LA County Grand Jury for making criminal threats against Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. The violation cited on court papers obtained by Variety dates to August 8, 2014 during the shooting of the N.W.A. biopic.
Suge was reportedly “extremely unhappy with his portrayal in the movie” and “threatened to commit a crime which would result in death and great bodily injury” to the director via text message. Suge was arraigned on Thursday, August 3.
He’s also currently awaiting a 2018 trial for the murder of Terry Carter and attempted murder of Cle “Bone” Sloan, for which Knight plead not guilty. Knight pulled up to a Compton burger stand in January 2015 and fled after a brief conflict, running over both men.
The former rap mogul has also been fighting civil legal battles on several fronts, involving Dr. Dre, Chris Brown and Scott Storch — not to mention the wrongful death lawsuit he’s facing from Carter’s family.
