Jonathan Majors Arrested for Alleged Assault, Rep Says Actor “Has Done Nothing Wrong”

The New York Police Department said in a statement that Jonathan Majors was arrested on Saturday after being accused of assaulting a woman during a domestic dispute.

“He has done nothing wrong,” a representative for the Creed III actor told The Hollywood Reporter. We are looking forward to clearing his name and putting this behind us.”

Police said they responded to a 911 call at an apartment in Chelsea where a 33-year-old male and a 30-year-old female were involved in a domestic dispute.

“The victim reported being assaulted to police.” According to the statement, officers “placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident.” The male was identified as Majors. According to police, the woman suffered minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to the hospital.

The actor was arrested on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment, according to the spokesperson. He is no longer in police custody. His relationship with the woman was described only as “domestic.”

He recently appeared as Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and is rumored to appear in season two of Loki, expected out later this year.
