Jonathan Majors' attorney says they have video evidence exonerating him of assaulting his girlfriend
Marvel actor Jonathan Majors’ attorney now claims the actor is the victim of a domestic altercation for which he was arrested.
In a statement on Sunday, Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry said he is ‘completely innocent and is probably the victim of an alteration with a woman he knows.’
Majors, 33, was taken into custody on Saturday morning on assault charges after allegedly beating his girlfriend inside a vehicle.
He was released on his own recognizance, and is expected to return to a Manhattan courtroom in May.
In her statement Chaudhry noted that her team is ‘quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently.’
She also said that her team has video footage from the vehicle where the alleged assault occurred, witness testimony from the driver and others who saw and heard the alleged altercation ‘and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting the allegations.’
‘All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her whatsoever,’ Chaudhry continued, claiming, ‘this incident came about because this woman was having an emotional crisis, for which she was taken to a hospital yesterday.
‘The NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and this is the only reason Mr. Majors was arrested. We expect these charges to be dropped soon,’ she said.
