Jonathan Majors has been charged with several assault and harassment misdemeanours, after being accused of assaulting a woman during an alleged “domestic dispute”, the Manhattan district attorney’s office has confirmed.
New York City police said Majors, the star of Creed III as well as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, was arrested on Saturday when police responded to a 911 call inside an apartment in the Chelsea neighbourhood in Manhattan.
Police said a 30-year-old woman sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to a hospital. Majors was released from police custody on Saturday night.
On Monday, the district attorney’s office confirmed the actor had been charged with several counts of assault in the third degree, three counts of attempted assault in the third degree, one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree, and one count harassment in the second degree.
A judge released Majors on his own recognisance and granted a limited order of protection. His next court appearance is scheduled for 8 May.
In the complaint, the unnamed female accuser claimed the defendant did “strike her about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear” and that he “put his hand on her neck, causing bruising and substantial pain”.
