Jonathan Majors Rep Says He’s “Innocent” And There’s Video To Prove It
Jonathan Majors’ team is doubling down on claims the actor is innocent following reports that he assaulted a woman in NYC.
“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows,” says criminal defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry. “We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.”
Chaudhry goes on to say there is video footage from the vehicle where the alleged incident took place, witness testimony from the driver and onlookers and two written statements from the woman recanting the allegations.
The 33-year-old was was arrested on Saturday in Manhattan and charged with strangulation, assault and harassment in what New York Police Department described as a “domestic dispute.”
On Saturday night, a judge granted a limited order of protection and ordered that Majors be released on his own recognizance, according to the New York Times.
The woman was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries to her head and neck. She was in stable condition as of Sunday morning.
Chaudhry claimed that the woman “was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to the hospital” and that Majors “did not assault her whatsoever.”
Majors’ team said they are “quickly gathering and presenting evidence” — including video footage from “the vehicle where this episode took place” and testimony from witnesses — to the district attorney and expect the charges to be dropped soon.
As previously reported police responded at about 11am to a 911 call inside an apartment in the Chelsea neighbourhood in Manhattan.
“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” a police spokesperson said. “Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident.”
