Sources told TMZ the star has been accused of punching the manager of Carrabba’s Italian Grill on August 9, before being dragged outside where a brawl kicked off.

It has been alleged that Taylor, who is a black belt in karate, punched a woman in the side of the head in the midst of the chaos.

He has reportedly been charged of four counts of assault, one count of criminal mischief and one count of disorderly conduct.

Taylor, who appeared in summer hit Baby Driver, reportedly told TMZ he was jumped in the car park of the restaurant.

His attorney is said to have told the celebrity website he denies punching or kicking anyone and acted in self defence.

In May the Miami Herald reported that Taylor had been arrested over allegations he assaulted a hotel security guard – he later tweeted to say cops had ruled the incident “a misdemeanour”.

Earlier this month it was reported that rap mogul Suge Knight, who Taylor played in Straight outta Compton has been indicted for threatening to kill the film’s director F. Gary Gray.

The Death Row Records founder was reportedly been indicted by a grand jury in Los Angeles County for making criminal threats.

The news was revealed in court papers obtained by Variety and dates back to August, 2014, while Gray was shooting the hit movie  – which charted the rise of rap group NWA.
