Creed III Star Jonathan Majors Arrested for Alleged Assault

Fresh off a press tour for the box office smash movie “Creed III”, it appears that trouble is coming in fast for rising star Jonathan Majors. On Saturday, March 25th, Majors was arrested in New York because of an alleged domestic violence allegation following a dispute between Majors and a 30-year-old unnamed woman. According to a statement from the NYPD, the woman claims that she endured an assault and sustained minor injuries to her head and neck.


According to a police statement, authorities received an emergency call at 11:14 a.m. on Saturday. Following a preliminary investigation, it was deduced that the “Creed III” star was involved in the dispute and was taken into custody without incident. The alleged victim was taken to a hospital to recover and is in stable condition. Police included several potential charges, including strangulation, assault, and harassment. At the time of writing this article, the actor has been released from police custody.


In a statement released by a representative of Majors, the star has done no wrongdoing: “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”


However, in a surprising turn of events, the accuser has recanted her allegations against the star and Major’s defense attorney Priya Chaudhry has claimed that Majors “is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows”. Chaudhry also claimed that the woman was having an “emotional crisis” at the time of the alleged altercation.


Due to the alleged incident, Majors is beginning to see the effects of this event, with the U.S. Army pulling its TV ad campaign featuring the movie star targeting a younger audience. In a released statement, the Army Enterprise Marketing Office stated that the U.S. Army is “deeply concerned by the allegations surrounding his arrest.” Only time will tell what other events may occur in response to the arrest and precedings of the incident.


Recently, Jonathan Majors has seen increasing popularity in Hollywood, following a string of movie releases such as 2019’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco”, this year’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”, and of course “Creed III”. Later this year, the Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams” is also slated to be released.  Majors also appeared as a host last November on “Saturday Night Live” along with his respective movie roles.
