Ammon News - Actor Jonathan Majors, who has won acclaim for a string of Hollywood hits, has been arrested on charges of assault, strangulation and harassment involving a woman in a New York apartment.

New York City police responded Saturday to a 911 call from an apartment near West 22nd Street and 8th Avenue at about 11:14 a.m. and determined that Majors was involved in a “domestic dispute” with a 30-year-old woman, according to a police statement.

The woman, who told police she was assaulted, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries to her head and neck, and is in stable condition.

Police placed Majors, 33, in custody without incident, the statement said.

Priya Chaudhry, an attorney representing Majors, said Sunday that the woman had recanted and denied any wrongdoing by the actor.

“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows. We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the district attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.”

Chaudhry said they plan to present video from the vehicle where this episode took place, along with witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the incident.

“All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever. Unfortunately, this incident came about because this woman was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to a hospital yesterday.”

In recent years, Majors’ career has taken off with a succession of highly acclaimed performances. His credits include “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” in 2019, Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” in 2020, his Emmy-nominated work in HBO’s horror series “Lovecraft Country” and Marvel’s “Loki” as He Who Remains. He also led the ensemble for Netflix’s all-Black western “The Harder They Fall” in 2021.

In two recent releases, Majors stars as uber-villain Kang the Conqueror in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and as Michael B. Jordan’s adversary Damian “Dame” Anderson in “Creed III.”
