Jonathan Majors was apprehended by the authorities on Saturday in New York for allegedly committing assault, harassment, and strangulation against a 30-year-old woman during a domestic dispute, according to law enforcement officials.
New York City police, in response to a 911 call, arrived at an apartment in the Chelsea district of Manhattan around 11 a.m. where the incident occurred. The victim informed the police that she was attacked, and they immediately took the 33-year-old actor, known for his roles in “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” into custody. Subsequently, they transported the victim, who had minor injuries to her head and neck, to a nearby hospital, where she was reported to be in stable condition.
As per the NYPD, the star has been released from custody as of Saturday night, confirmed by The Associated Press spokesperson.
A spokesperson for Jonathan Majors has denied any wrongdoing by the actor, assuring the media, “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
Having made his breakthrough in the 2019 film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” the 33-year-old actor has quickly become one of the most promising stars in Hollywood.
