Jonathan Majors, the celebrated actor recognized for his outstanding portrayals in "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" and the highly anticipated "Creed III," was apprehended on Saturday in Manhattan for allegations of assault linked to a domestic altercation.
The 33-year-old actor was taken into custody at his upscale Chelsea penthouse on Saturday morning. Majors had reportedly called 911 to report a disturbance caused by his girlfriend, but upon arrival, police discovered that she had sustained injuries and had been physically assaulted.
According to a statement released by the police department, the victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to a nearby hospital in a stable condition. Majors was arrested without incident and charged with harassment, assault, and strangulation. However, despite these charges, a spokesperson for Majors has denied the allegations, telling TMZ that they are confident in clearing his name.
Majors pleaded not guilty during a brief arraignment on Saturday and was subsequently released without bail. He is scheduled to appear at a new hearing in May.
Majors has had a successful career in the entertainment industry, including hosting "Saturday Night Live" in November and portraying the villain Kang the Conqueror in "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania." He is also set to star in "Creed III," the latest addition to the "Rocky" series of boxing movies.
