Jonathan Majors, an actor, was arrested on suspicion of assault, harassment, and strangling on Saturday in New York.
Majors, the star of the recently released “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” was allegedly involved in a domestic argument with a 30-year-old woman, according to New York City police. At about 11 a.m., police were called to a 911 call made inside an apartment in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.
The woman reported to authorities that she had been attacked, according to a statement from an NYPD representative. “Without incident, officers took the 33-year-old man into custody. The person was transported to a nearby hospital in stable condition despite suffering minor head and neck injuries.
As of Saturday night, the NYPD spokeswoman told The Associated Press that the man was no longer in police custody.
Majors’ spokesperson disputed that the actor had done anything improper. The spokesman wrote in an email to the AP on Saturday, “He has done nothing wrong. “We anticipate clearing his name and putting this right.”
One of the Hollywood stars who is rising the quickest is Majors. Majors has starred in “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall,” and last year’s “Devotion” since making his breakthrough in 2019’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco.” He also starred in “Magazine Dreams,” a recent Sundance Film Festival entry that Searchlight Pictures will release in December.
