Jonthan Majors Arrested in NY on Harassment and Strangulation Accusations

by Ivy June

Jonathan Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, has proclaimed his innocence in the wake of his recent arrest. Documents revealed by Fox News reported the Creed III actor was accused of two counts of assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, attempted assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree after the police responded to a domestic dispute in a Chelsea, New York apartment. 

Chaudhry disclosed that they have obtained “two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations”. In her statement to multiple outlets, she expressed her conviction that the charges against the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star will soon be dropped.

“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows. We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently,” Chaudhry said. “All the evidence proves that Mr Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever. Unfortunately, this incident came about because this woman was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to a hospital yesterday.”

Although all charges are to be dropped, Majors, is facing charges of two misdemeanors, third-degree assault, second-degree aggravated harassment, second-degree harassment and third-degree attempted assault. 

It has been an eventful year on the big screen for the star, with rave reviews for his character in Creed III, alongside Michael B. Jordan. In April, Majors starred in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania to initiate Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 5.

Fans have been enjoying Majors’ career progression, some directors have expressed a different perspective after his arrest. A.B. Allen, an emerging director, was referring to Majors when they tweeted about an “abusive human being” in February. Allen further explained that the conduct was not physical but rather “emotionally violent” and “professionally abusive.” Similarly, Tim Nicolai, a Broadway professional, has revealed that individuals associated with Yale (where Majors holds a master’s degree) and New York City have been aware of the actor’s “sociopathic and abusive” tendencies for a while.

On 8 May, Majors is set to attend court. Here, it will be revealed whether or not his attorney is right in asserting that the available evidence will result in the dismissal of the charges.
