Major Trouble For Majors?

Jonathan Majors is seeking to clear his name after being accused of assault this past weekend

Actor Jonathan Majors, well-recognized for his crowd and critic-pleasing performances in the recently-released blockbusters Creed 3 and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, was arrested in NYC on Saturday (Mar. 25th) for allegedly assaulting a woman in a cab.

According to the NYPD, a 911-call from a woman claiming to have been attacked by Majors was received, leading to the actor getting arrested by the authorities and the alleged-victim being taken to the hospital.

The official complaint filed by the woman read that Majors had smacked her in the face with an open hand and put his hands around her neck, causing laceration behind her ear as well as bruising and pain around her neck.

Majors has yet to make an official statement on the matter, however his legal-defense team have openly-denounced the accusation against the actor and have claimed that they have evidence ready to prove his innocence.

Priya Chaudhry, Major's attorney, recently claimed that she has submitted evidence to the district attorney "with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently," with the evidence including video footage of the inside of the taxi at the time of the incident, witness testimonies from the driver and others, and two written statements from the alleged-victim recanting her accusation against Majors. Chaudhry also claimed that the woman accusing Majors of assault was having an "emotional crisis" that lead to a physical-confrontation.

On Saturday, same day as the alleged-assault, a judge had Majors released on recognizance, with the actor's next court date set for May 8th.

Majors' arrest compelled the U.S. Army to recently pull their ads that aim to boost recruitment that feature the actor, with the Army Marketing office stating that "While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete."

No statements have been publicly made yet by Disney or Marvel Studios on the whole matter, nor by past co-stars of Majors, including Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson, or Paul Rudd.
