Suge Knight Indicted For Death Threats Against 'Straight Outta Compton' Director

By HHL Editors

Suge Knight's legal problem just got even bigger.

The Death Row founder has been indicted for making death threats against Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray in 2014.

According to TMZ, Suge made the threats during the filming of the movie via a text message he sent to Gray. He was unhappy with the way he was being portrayed in the NWA biopic.

A few months later Knight killed a man involved in the movie's production by driving over him in a Compton parking lot.

Suge's peeps claim the authorities are revisiting the death threat charge because the murder and attempted murder charges against him from the park lot incident are "falling apart."

Suge's murder and attempted murder trial begins on January 8, 2018.

No word on the timeline for the new death threat charge.
