Jonathan Majors was having a great year so far with two major movies Creed III and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – that was his introduction as the next big baddie of the MCU. But it all seems a little shaky now. The Marvel star recently made headlines for assaulting a woman. The actor was arrested on Saturday morning in New York City on charges of harassment, strangulation, and assault.
As per the reports, Majors was arrested after the NYC police received a call from a woman who informed them about the assault. The alleged victim claims to be the actor’s girlfriend.

The NYC police arrested Jonathan Majors on Saturday morning as they were alerted to a 911 call. The actor was arrested for being involved in a domestic dispute. The authorities claimed that Majors was apparently involved in strangling a 30-year-old woman. The woman was assaulted and suffered minor injuries on her neck and head; she was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.
As per the sources, the woman who is the complainant is Majors’ girlfriend. She informed the police that while returning home in a taxi from a bar, the couple got into an argument. The police were told that Jonathan Majors’ girlfriend noticed him texting another woman, and when she decided to confront him and check his phone, the Ant-Man 3 actor got furious. The incident led to an argument, and later on, things got so heated up that Majors slapped her and tried to strangle her. A spokesperson for the NYPD said in a statement,
“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.”
All this evidence was enough for the police to arrest Majors.
