Actor Jonathan Majors in police custody for alleged assault

3 min read

Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday after being accused of assaulting a woman during a domestic dispute, the New York Police Department said in a statement.

Police responded to an emergency call in Manhattan late Saturday night, determining in a preliminary investigation that there was a domestic dispute between a man, 33, and a 30-year-old woman.

“The victim informed police she was assaulted”, police said in a statement to AFP.

The woman, whose relationship with the actor has not been clarified, was taken to a hospital with minor head and neck injuries in “stable condition”.

Majors’ representative Carrie Gordon, said in a statement published by the Los Angeles Times that the actor “has done nothing wrong.

“We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up”.

Judicial authorities have not responded to AFP‘s request for confirmation on whether the actor is still in custody.

“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows”, the actor’s criminal defence lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement on Sunday. “We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently”.

Video footage from the vehicle where the incident took place, along with witness testimony and alleged statements from the woman recanting her allegations are among the evidence Major’s attorney noted are being collected. The statement also alleges the alteration was a result of a mental health incident involving the woman.

“All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever”, Chaudhry added. “The NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and this is the only reason Mr Majors was arrested”.

Majors has appeared recently in several major films, including Creed III, Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Magazine Dreams, a film presented at the Sundance Film Festival.
