Jonathan Majors arrested on assault charge in New York.

Authorities said Saturday that the actor Jonathan Majors was arrested in New York on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.

Majors, the star of the recently released “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania,” was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman, according to New York City police. Around 11 a.m., police responded to a 911 call inside an apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” a spokesperson for the NYPD said in a statement. “Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”

As of Saturday night, he was no longer in police custody, an NYPD spokesperson confirmed to The Associated Press.

Majors’ representative denied any wrongdoing on his behalf.

“He has done nothing wrong,” the representative said in an email to the AP on Saturday. “We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”

Majors is one of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. Following his breakthrough performance in 2019’s “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” Majors has appeared in “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall,” and last year’s “Devotion.” He also appears in the recent Sundance Film Festival entry “Magazine Dreams,” which Searchlight Pictures will release in December.
