The woman who accused actor Jonathon Majors of an alleged assault, recanted her allegations on Sunday after his attorney revealed they have video evidence that proves otherwise, reps confirmed.
Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ attorney said her team managed to obtain “two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations,” according to the Los Angeles Times. Majors was taken into police custody on charges of assault, harassment, and strangulation on Saturday in New York after police responded to a 911 call.
New information revealed that Majors called the NYPD to his apartment building on the morning of his arrest because the 30-year-old woman, who is believed to be his girlfriend, was having a mental breakdown, said Major’s attorney.
But the alleged victim told authorities he assaulted her. After the NYPD were called to the scene, the woman was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries to her head and neck.
Shortly after the arrest, Chaudhry released a statement saying the woman “was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to the hospital” and that Majors “did not assault her whatsoever.”
Chaudhry maintains her client’s innocence and is quickly gathering evidence that proves exactly that, including video footage from the vehicle that displays the event in question and statements from witnesses. The evidence is being presented to a district attorney, which Chaudhry expects will be sufficient for charges to be dropped soon.
A judge granted a limited protection order on Saturday night and ordered that Majors be released.
Following the arrest of the Creed 3 star, the U.S Military has removed commercials that feature Majors until his innocence is proven.
“While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete,” told a U.S. Army Forces representative to the Los Angeles Times.
These recent allegations and arrest come to a surprise as Majors’ is Hollywood’s newest “it guy” who has taken over the acting industry by storm. Majors has a scheduled court appearance on May 8, stated by the New York Times.
