Jonathan Majors arrested in connection to 'domestic dispute' in New York City but his reps say he's 'done nothing wrong'
NYPD officers arrested actor Jonathan Majors Saturday morning.
Majors was held on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.
Representatives for Majors say that the actor has "done nothing wrong."
Jonathan Majors was arrested Saturday morning in connection to a "domestic dispute" in a New York City apartment with a 30-year-old woman, the New York Police Department told Insider in a statement.
Around 11:14 a.m., police responded to a 911 call in a Manhattan apartment where a "preliminary investigation" found that the 33-year-old actor and the woman were involved in a "domestic dispute."
Majors was arrested on the scene and held on suspicion of strangulation, assault, and harassment after the woman told police that she was assaulted, according to the police statement. She was transported to an area hospital after sustaining "minor injuries to her head and neck," police said.
Representatives for Majors denied that the star had done anything wrong in a statement to Insider.
"He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up," his representative said.
Priya Chaudhry, Majors' criminal defense lawyer, later told Insider in a statement that Majors "the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows." Chaudhry said that Majors teams was gathering and presenting evidence to the Manhattan DA "with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently."
"This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations," Chaudhry wrote in the statement.
Majors is no longer under police custody, according to TMZ, which first reported the arrest on Saturday.
The actor is known for starring in movies "Creed 3," alongside Michael B. Jordan, and Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania."
