As Variety notes, Majors was arrested on Saturday in Manhattan in an alleged “domestic dispute.” He was 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.

The complaint filed by the unnamed victim claims the defendant did “strike her about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear.” She further claims he “put his hand on her neck, causing bruising and substantial pain.” As per the outlet, the DA’s office says a judge released Majors on his own recognizance and granted a limited order of protection.

Meanwhile, Major’s attorney defended the victim’s claims saying that “Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.” Following the Saturday arrest, his criminal defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry shared in the statement that "We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently."

She further mentioned a video as evidence in favor of the actor. "This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations." Earlier, a representative for Majors also denied the allegations saying, “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
