In what is a stunning turn of events, Jonathan Majors—who was arrested by the New York Police Department in March and charged with assault—told his side of the story to NYPD detectives and according to his lawyer found probably cause enough to warrant arrest his accuser, 30-year-old Grace Jabbari for assaulting the Creed III star. However, no arrest warrant has been issued.
In his June 21 meeting with the NYPD, Majors filed a domestic violence complaint against Jabbari who he says scratched, slapped, dugged her thumbnail into him and grabbed at his face, causing pain and bleeding.
A witness account backs up the actor’s claim that he tried to pull away from the woman during the incident resulting in his torn jacket. The Root is reporting that “in addition to assaulting him, Jabbari also took “his iPhone, a Rolex vintage watch and other luxury items that cost $6,000-$7,000,” and ran up charges on his credit card without his authorization.”
In a statement issued to the media, Priya Chaudry, the 33-year-old actor’s attorney said, “Jonathan Majors is innocent and has not abused anyone. We have provided irrefutable evidence to the District Attorney that the charges are false. We are confident that he will be fully exonerated.”
The case is set to go on trial August 3.
