Jonathan Majors was arrested in New York on Saturday morning for assault, strangulation and harassment after a reported altercation with a woman.

A spokesperson for NYPD Deputy Commissioner Public Information confirmed Majors’ arrest and provided the following statement to IndieWire: “On Saturday, March 25, 2023, at approximately 11:14 a.m., police responded to a call to the 911 inside an apartment… within compound 10. Preliminary investigation determined that a 33-year-old man was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman. The victim informed the police that she had been assaulted. Officers took the 33-year-old man into custody without incident. The victim suffered minor head and neck injuries and was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

In a statement to IndieWire, a representative for Majors wrote, “He didn’t do anything wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.

The news was first reported by TMZ.

The arrest comes at a pivotal time for Majors’ career, as 2023 has seen the actor rise to movie star status in Hollywood. After earning rave reviews at Sundance for his role as the obsessive bodybuilder in “Magazine Dreams,” he made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” That film saw him play Kang the Conqueror, a villain that Marvel was building its next Phase 6 around.

Majors is set to reprise the role in several upcoming movies, including “Avengers: Secret Wars” and “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.” A month later, he took on Michael B. Jordan in “Creed III,” a box office juggernaut that only added to the feeling that Majors were on their way to becoming an A-list.

IndieWire has also reached out to Marvel Studios for comment.
