Actor Jonathan Majors is facing accusations that he choked his girlfriend during a domestic dispute over the weekend, the Associated Press reports.
Police responding to a 911 call arrested the 33-year-old Marvel star late Saturday morning at an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The victim, an unnamed 30-year-old woman, was Majors’ girlfriend, according to the New York Post, citing police sources.
“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” an NYPD spokesperson said in a statement, according to the AP. “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.”
According to TMZ, the dispute arose Friday night while Majors and the woman were coming home from a Brooklyn bar in a taxi. The girlfriend allegedly saw that another woman had texted Majors and confronted him about it, at which point Majors became upset, took her hand, and slapped her, TMZ reports.
The girlfriend then said that Majors wrapped his hands around her neck.
Majors and the woman spent the evening at different locations and she called authorities Saturday morning.
Police detained Majors without incident and he was subsequently charged with strangulation, assault and harassment. He was released without bail at an arraignment on Saturday evening and has another court hearing in May.
In a statement to TMZ, a representative for the movie star said: “He’s done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
Majors is featured in the recently released films “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
