Suge Knight indicted for threats against Compton director

Suge Knight allegedly made a death threat against Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray over his portrayal in the film.

Knight, 52, is accused of threatening Gray's life in a text message while the film was being shot in August 2014, TMZ reports.

'On or about August 8, 2014, Suge... threatened to commit a crime which would result in death and great bodily injury to Felix Gary Gray,' the LA County Grand Jury indictment read.

The alleged threat came just months before Suge was charged with murder over the death of a man in a parking lot in Compton in 2015.

TMZ obtained a photo of Gray speaking to police on the set of Straight Outta Compton shortly after the alleged threat was made against him.
