Jonathan Majors Arrested For Allegedly Assaulting Woman In NYC
Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday morning in an alleged domestic dispute.
Majors was taken into custody following a 911 call made from an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, according to a statement from the New York Police Department.
“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” the statement said. The 30-year-old woman had “minor injuries to her head and neck,” police said.
Majors faces charges of strangulation, assault and harassment, according to the NYPD.
An attorney for Majors, Priya Chaudhry, said the actor is “completely innocent” and was “provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.”
According to TMZ the woman is Majors girlfriend. Here’s what allegedly happened:
Per our law enforcement sources, police were told that the alleged victim is Majors’ girlfriend — and, according to her, they got into an argument while in a taxi returning home from a bar in Brooklyn.
Our sources say police were told the girlfriend saw another woman texting Majors, and she confronted him — trying to sneak a peek at his phone. We’re told the alleged victim/GF claims this got Majors mad, and that he allegedly grabbed her hand and allegedly slapped her.
We’re also told the alleged victim claims he put his hands around her neck during this. Our sources say the woman was dropped off somewhere and that JM spent the night elsewhere.
The following morning the woman called 911 and informed cops Majors assaulted her. Police say when they arrived, they found Majors, and the woman who had “minor injuries to her neck and head.”
She was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition. As for Majors, he was cuffed and taken to jail without incident as police felt there was enough evidence for probable cause.
