Jonathan Majors has achieved a victory in the allegations of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.
Following a distress call from Jabbari, reporting an assault, the New York Police Department arrested the Creed III star on March 25 at an apartment in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Majors faced a court hearing that same evening, where he was charged with two counts of assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment, and attempted assault against a woman
Throughout the ordeal, Majors’ representatives have consistently asserted his innocence. His lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, informed Newsweek that the actor was unequivocally the victim in this situation, as evidenced by the police findings of probable cause to apprehend Jabbari at two NYPD precincts.
Chaudhry said that Majors met with the NYPD last week “to present them with evidence of what really happened on that night.”
“Within hours of viewing the evidence, and conducting their own thorough investigation, the NYPD found probable cause to arrest Grace Jabbari for assaulting Jonathan Majors,” Chaudhry added.
“Considering this development, we extend our gratitude to the NYPD detectives for their efforts,” Chaudhry said.
Majors also appeared in court on May 8 and June 20, and according to a Business Insider report, presented himself to the Chinatown precinct on June 21 to give a statement to police about what he claimed had occurred on the night of the alleged assault.
The actor said a “drunk and hysterical” Jabbari attacked him on a street corner in Chinatown on March 25. He alleged Jabbari, a dancer, scratched and slapped his face, causing pain.
Both the Chinatown precinct and the Manhattan precinct that first attended the incident at the Chelsea apartment following Jabbari’s 911 call on March 25 found probable cause to investigate Jabbari, Majors’ lawyers said.
According to the report, Manhattan prosecutors were reluctant to prosecute Jabbari and an “incident card” calling for her to present to the Chinatown precinct for questioning was cancelled.
The district attorney’s office and police have not confirmed the account given by Majors’ lawyers.
Newsweek reached out to the NYPD and Jabbari for comment.
