Jonathan Majors in Legal Trouble After Alleged Assault and Harassment

A day after he was arrested in New York City, Jonathan Majors was charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office says that the actor from “Lovecraft Country” was charged on Sunday. The alleged victim said in the complaint, which was sent to The Times on Monday, that Majors “struck her in the face with an open hand, causing her a lot of pain and a cut behind her ear.” No one knew who the woman was.

Majors, who is 33 years old, is also said to have grabbed the woman’s hand, causing her finger to swell, bruise, and hurt a lot, and put his hand on her neck.

Majors has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of third-degree assault and one misdemeanor count of each of third-degree attempted assault, second-degree aggravated harassment, and second-degree harassment.

Monday, The Times asked Majors’ lawyer for a comment, but the lawyer did not respond right away.

The actor who was in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania” and “Creed III” was arrested on Saturday and charged with assault, strangulation, and harassment.

Police say that Majors was taken into custody on Saturday morning after they got a 911 call from an apartment building in New York City. In a statement, the NYPD said that Majors had a “domestic dispute” with a 30-year-old woman who said she had been hurt. She was taken to a nearby hospital because her head and neck were hurt.

Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, denied the claims and said on Sunday that the woman who made the claims had changed her mind. Chaudhry said that Majors is “completely innocent and the victim of a fight with a woman he knows.”

The actor’s lawyers said they are “quickly gathering and presenting evidence” to the district attorney, such as video footage from “the vehicle where this episode took place” and witness statements. They expect the charges to be dropped soon.

According to the complaint, a judge let the actor go on his own word and gave him a limited order of protection. The next court date for Majors is May 8.
