*Actor Jonathan Majors who’s been blowing up BIG in Hollywood recently was arrested in NYC this weekend. Why, you ask? According to police he’s being accused of assaulting a woman. But Majors says it’s all BS. Read on to find out why.
Here’s background info on the incident. NYPD authorities confirm the actor was booked Saturday morning on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.
Police say they responded to a call for service around 11am near the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.
The alleged victim, a female, told police that Majors had gotten into a dispute with her and proceeded to attack her. At the time their exact relationship is unknown.
That’s why Majors is calling BS on the woman’s story. Why? Because we now know the woman is the actor’s girlfriend.

Here’s an update on the situation via TMZ that basically verifies the woman’s tale is BS:
Here’s what allegedly happened in the lead-up to this. Per our law enforcement sources, police were told that the alleged victim is Majors’ girlfriend — and, according to her, they got into an argument while in a taxi returning home from a bar in Brooklyn.
Our sources say police were told the girlfriend saw another woman texting Majors, and she confronted him — trying to sneak a peek at his phone. We’re told the alleged victim/GF claims this got Majors mad, and that he allegedly grabbed her hand and allegedly slapped her.
We’re also told the alleged victim claims he put his hands around her neck during this. Our sources say the woman was dropped off somewhere and that JM spent the night elsewhere. It appears the girlfriend went to police the following morning (Sat.) and reported a crime.
As of now, Majors is out of police custody. We’ll see where this goes. We personally recommend that he get a new girlfriend and for the girlfriend to get a replacement for him.
“He’s done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up,” a rep for Majors said.
