Jonathan Majors, a Marvel actor, has been arrested for allegedly beating a lady following a domestic quarrel.
On Saturday, March 25, the 33-year-old actor was detained on suspicion of assault, strangling, and harassment against a lady in a New York apartment.
He is claimed to have been involved in a domestic argument with a 30-year-old lady, while Majors’ agent denied any misconduct on his behalf.
At before 11 a.m., police responded to a 911 call inside an apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
“The victim informed police she was assaulted. Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident.
“The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition,” a spokesperson for the NYPD said in a statement.
As of Saturday night, he was no longer in police custody, an NYPD spokeswoman confirmed to The Associated Press.
Majors, who appears in the upcoming Creed III, was seen exiting a New York City courthouse after being charged with assault.
The actor was observed exiting the criminal court wearing a baseball cap that said “Freedom Freedom.”
In photographs obtained by the Daily Mail, he was surrounded by six security guards and police officers as he went out of the courthouse.
In a statement given to the Los Angeles Times, a representative for Majors, Carrie Gordon, said: “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
According to a source who spoke with TMZ following the alleged assault, the alleged victim had “visible injuries”, including a laceration behind her ear, redness and marks to her face.

His most recently starred as Kang in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantamania alongside Paul Rudd, and is rumoured to appear in the forthcoming second season of Loki opposite Tom Hiddleston.
Majors’ other credits include the HBO drama Lovecraft Country, and the 2021 western The Harder They Fall.
