The actor Jonathan Majors, who has appeared in movies like “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” was detained on accusations of assault, harassment, and strangulation on Saturday in New York. Around 11 a.m., a 911 call from an apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea claimed Majors’ participation in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman, prompting the New York Police Department to take action.
A spokesperson for the NYPD stated, “The victim informed police she was assaulted. Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”
The NYPD spokesperson reported that Majors was released from police detention Saturday night. His agent has refuted all accusations on his behalf, writing in an email to AP on Saturday, “He has done nothing improper. “We anticipate clearing his name and putting this right.”
Majors, one of Hollywood’s most popular up-and-coming actors, rose to fame in “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” in 2019 and has also appeared in “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall,” and “Devotion” from the previous year. He also starred in “Magazine Dreams,” a recent Sundance Film Festival entry that Searchlight Pictures plans to distribute in December.
