Actor Jonathan Majors Arrested on Domestic Violence Charges in New York City

(MENAFN) actor Jonathan Majors, known for his roles in "Creed III," "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," and "Lovecraft Country," was arrested Saturday morning in New York City on allegations of domestic violence. The 33-year-old star was taken into custody on suspicion of strangulation, assault, and harassment, according to a statement provided by the NYPD to CBS News.

Officers responded to a 911 call from an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood at 11:14 a.m. A preliminary investigation determined that there had been a domestic dispute between Majors and a 30-year-old woman. The woman, who reported being assaulted, was transported to a hospital with minor head and neck injuries and is in stable condition.

Majors was arrested at the scene of the altercation, and the police are continuing their investigation. A representative for the actor released a statement to CBS News, saying that Majors had done nothing wrong and that they look forward to clearing his name in this matter.

Domestic violence is a serious issue, and Majors' arrest underscores the importance of addressing it. The National Domestic Violence Hotline reports that on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States. This equates to more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.

The consequences of domestic violence extend beyond physical harm and can include emotional trauma, financial hardship, and long-term health problems. It is important for victims to seek help and support, and for society to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions.

In conclusion, the arrest of Jonathan Majors on domestic violence charges is a reminder of the importance of addressing this issue. Domestic violence affects millions of people in the United States and has far-reaching consequences. While Majors' case is still under investigation, it is essential that all allegations of domestic violence are taken seriously and that victims receive the support they need.
