Authorities arrested Jonathan Majors in New York City for allegedly assaulting a woman on Saturday (March 25). Moreover, TMZ reports that sources from law enforcement told them they took him in on Saturday morning on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment. Furthermore, police reportedly responded to a service call in Manhattan, specifically Chelsea, around 11 a.m. ET. According to these reports, a woman claimed that she got into an altercation with the actor, who proceeded to attack her. Their relationship is unknown, and Majors' representative denied these claims of wrongdoing.

Not only that, but the alleged victim displayed injuries such as a laceration behind her ear, reddened areas, and clear marks of impact on her face. Fortunately, she is in stable condition according to reports after officials transported her to a nearby medical center. Moreover, police apprehended Majors and took him to prison after belief that there was enough evidence for probable cause. Still, from what TMZ informs, he is already out of law enforcement's hands.

"He's done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up," the 33-year-old's representative stated to the outlet. Of course, this news should come as a massive shock to those even remotely caught up with movies these days. After huge roles in the latest Ant-Man film and Creed III, he became one of the most acclaimed and admired screen actors of the moment. Not only have his roles impressed both casual and snobby movie audiences, but his charisma made him a favorite in the pop culture world.

For example, he recently showed some love to the rap world when talking about what music inspired him for his role as Damian “Diamond Dame” Anderson in the latest Creed film. Specifically, he honored Nipsey Hussle and Tupac. Given his massive popularity right now and how much people seem to like him, many hope that these allegations are untrue. While it seems he and his team look forward to proving as such, it would be an unfortunate fate for a career with such promise if his actions hurt others. This is still a developing story, so come back to HNHH for the latest updates on Jonathan Majors.
