Hollywood actor Jonathan Majors, known for his roles in “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” was arrested in New York City on Saturday on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.
The arrest followed a 911 call at 11 a.m. from an apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, where police found a 30-year-old woman involved in a domestic dispute with Majors.
The NYPD reported that the victim had sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to a local hospital in stable condition.
Majors was later released from police custody on Saturday night.
A representative for the actor firmly denied any wrongdoing, stating, “He has done nothing wrong.
We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
According to TMZ, the alleged incident occurred when the couple returned by cab to Chelsea from a Brooklyn bar.
The woman reportedly attempted to check Majors’s phone, leading to a physical altercation.
Majors, a fast-rising star in Hollywood, has appeared in several high-profile projects, including “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “Da 5 Bloods,” and “The Harder They Fall.”
In addition, he recently starred in the Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams,” set for release by Searchlight Pictures in December.
