Actor Jonathan Majors arraigned following arrest on assault charges in Manhattan
‘Creed III’ actor Jonathan Majors was arraigned following his recent arrest on assault charges, according to police.
Officials say that Majors, 33, was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman in New York City. The woman told police she was assaulted and Majors was taken into custody.
Police sources say Majors called 911 himself to report his concern about his girlfriend, with whom he lives. When police arrived, sources say the girlfriend told a different story — that she and Majors were in a cab on the way home from Brooklyn when he physically attacked her.
Patrol officers noticed marks on the woman’s body, and they placed Majors under arrest.
The woman sustained minor injuries to her head and neck. She was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
Majors was charged with strangulation, assault, and harassment.
A representative for Majors denied any wrongdoing by the actor.
“He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
Majors is one of the fastest-rising stars in Hollywood. After breaking through in 2019’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” Majors has starred in “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall” and last year’s “Devotion.” He also stars in the recent Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams,” which Searchlight Pictures is to release in December.
