A lawyer for Jonathan Majors has appeared in the actor’s defense! Priya Chaudhry, a criminal defence lawyer, claims that the Creed III actor is “completely innocent” in the assault case against a woman. He was arrested on Saturday in Manhattan and later released on charges of assault and harassment. According to the New York Police Department, the incident was described as a domestic dispute. The altercation between Jonathan Majors and a woman he knows is likely to explain his arrest, Chaudhry told Rolling Stone. We are rapidly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney in the hope that all charges will be dropped within the next few days. As well as the video footage from the vehicle where the incident occurred, witness testimony from onlookers and witnesses as well as two written statements rebutting the woman’s allegations, Priya Chaudhry disclosed.

Her argument is that all of the evidence proves Mr Majors’ innocence and that he did not assault her in any way. This incident occurred because the woman was suffering from an emotional crisis, for which she was hospitalized yesterday. This is the only reason Mr Majors was arrested since the NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations. It is expected that these charges will be dropped soon. It was initially believed that strangulation, assault, and harassment were possible charges, but he was ultimately charged with two counts of assault in the third degree and attempted assault in the third degree, attempted assault in the third degree, harassment in the second degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, and harassment in the second degree — each of which is a misdemeanour or lesser charge.
Jonathan Majors’ attorney says they have evidence including video footage from the vehicle, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and the alleged victim recanting her story.

U.S. Army Pulls Ad Over Assault Charges Against Jonathan Majors As His Lawyer Claims Video Proves Actor Is Completely Innocent
Jonathan Majors claims he was the victim of domestic violence allegations in New York that led to his arrest. According to Chaudhry, the “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” star is “completely innocent” and is likely the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows, and charges are expected to be dropped. As reported by USA TODAY on Saturday, Majors, 33, was taken into custody after officers received a 911 call from a 30-year-old woman who claimed to have been assaulted. According to the statement, the woman was taken to the hospital. Several charges, including assault and harassment, were brought against Majors, according to a statement released to USA TODAY. As alleged in the complaint, the woman suffered a laceration behind her ear after being struck by an open hand, and bruising and pain when the defendant placed a hand on her neck. Majors’ attorney says she is submitting evidence to the district attorney in hopes of having all charges completely dropped by the end of the week.
It includes video footage taken from the vehicle during this episode, witness testimony from the driver and others who witnessed and heard it, and two written statements recanting these allegations from the woman,” Chaudhry said. As far as all the evidence is concerned, Mr. Majors is innocent and did not assault her in any way. A judge granted Majors a limited order of protection and released him on his own recognizance on Saturday. There will be a court date on May 8. Majors’ attorney said that the dispute occurred because the woman was experiencing an emotional crisis, for which she was hospitalized yesterday. It is only because of this reason that Jonathan Majors was arrested that the NYPD has to make an arrest in such a situation, she said. On Saturday night, Jonathan Majors’s representative issued a statement saying the actor has not committed any crimes. This matter will be cleared up and resolved as soon as possible, according to the statement.
It’s incredible the amount of women with emotional crisis around the world. Poor men are always falsely accused, instead they’re all so pure and innocent ????????❤️Stay strong little Johnny ❤️❤️

This just sounds like text book coverup. Using the age old mysoginistic “woman was having a emotional crisis” lie.
Getting strangled by jonathan majors would definitely put one in an emotional crisis & he’s more famous so a lot of these rep pr nonsesne is to be expected.
