Today in Tha Wire looks like life sometimes really does have a way of imitating art.   “Straight Outta ComptonSuge Knight actor, Richard Marcos Taylor, is allegedly living up to his movie characters “real life” bad-boy image.  According to reports Taylor was arrested for beatin’ down a security guard at the Marenas Beach Resort.  The actor posted a few pics on Instagram prior to the incident, where he appears to be happy soaking up some rays.

The Miami Herald reports the 40-year old was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery on early Monday morning.  The drama reportedly got cranked up the night before, when the security guard at the beach resort, asked the actor to take his foot off a table in the lobby.  The actor apparently wasn’t feeling the guards little request, refusing to do so. Instead Taylor allegedly told the guard to keep it movin’ and ” leave him alone.”

Well, as it turns out the resort officer wasn’t feeling’ the actor either.  The police report states that the guard told employees to call authorities, to help the actor take his foot down. Reportedly between the time it took for Miami’s finest to pull up, Taylor laid hands on the man.  The Herald reports the 6’3, 265 lb actor, sashayed over to the guard, allegedly picked him up and slammed him to the ground.

Soon after police arrived the scene, and found the guard picking himself up off the floor. Evidently Taylor was still on the scene, because he was quickly arrested and taken for a nice little trip downtown to the Miami-Dade jail.  At last word, the actor is still there!  Of course if he doesn’t have any priors, or pending legal issues, he should be able to get outta this one.  If not, maybe he’ll get a chance to meet the real Suge, up close and personal.

What a crazy story.  Of course I’ll keep you posted on any updates or new details. Meanwhile stay in the know and get the scoop every weekday, with Tha Wire on The People’s Station 107 Jamz.
