Suge Knight Indictment Comes From 'Straight Out of Compton'

Suge Knight Indicted for Making Death Threats Against 'Straight Outta Compton' Director F. Gary Gray | TMZ.com Suge Knight Indicted For Death Threats Against Director F. Gary Gray

A grand jury in Los Angeles has indicted Suge Knight, Death Row records founder and producer, for threatening the director of Straight Outta Compton, the 2015 biopic that details the '90s rise of NWA.

Apparently, Suge was very unhappy with the way he was portrayed in Straight Outta Compton, and his feelings about his portrayal might have motivated his alleged death threats toward Gray.

The death threats took place a couple of months before Knight famously ran over his friend for which he is standing trial for murder.

As previously reported, Suge and his team weren't at all pleased with his portrayal in the movie, which includes his relationship with one of N.W.A.'s iconic members, Dr. Dre.

The indictment is dated February 7, 2017, but Knight is set for arraignment today (Aug. 3).

While the 2015 incident was captured on camera, Knight has denied the allegations. The dead man was also involved in the production of the film.

Prosecutors have repeatedly cited Knight's violent history, stating in court papers filed last year that he "has been a violent, unrepentant criminal for over 30 years".

He has pleaded not guilty and claims he accidentally struck Carter as he fled the scene in fear for his life suspecting an armed ambush.
