According to US media, US actor Jonathan Majors ("Creed III – Rocky's Legacy") was temporarily arrested last night (local time) because of a domestic dispute. The 33-year-old is accused of assault, harassment and strangulation, several US media wrote, citing the police.
The victim was a 30-year-old woman who was taken to hospital with minor head and neck injuries. Majors "did nothing wrong," said the actor's manager, Carrie Gordon, according to US media. She reportedly agreed to investigate the matter.
Shortly before midnight there was an emergency call from an apartment in the Chelsea district of New York, the reports said. Officers then drove to the apartment, where the woman reported that she had been attacked. Majors was arrested without incident. He was no longer in police custody that night, the broadcaster CNN wrote, citing the police.
Majors is considered a rising star in Hollywood. He is one of the main actors in the boxing drama "Creed III", which hit the cinemas in early March. He also recently played the super villain Kang in the Marvel film Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania.
