Jonathan Majors' Lawyer Provides New Evidence Proving Innocence
In a statement shared with The Direct, Jonathan Majors' criminal defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry relayed that the actor "completely denies" the assault allegations against his girlfriend, noting that Majors himself made the 911 call to police out of concern for her mental health:
"Mr. Majors completely denies assaulting the woman. Around 11 a.m. on March 25, 2023, Jonathan Majors called 911 out of concern for the woman’s mental health."
Chaudry shared that Majors' arrest was part of an NYPD protocol that required it under "certain circumstances."
She also mentioned that Majors' girlfriend later sent text messages admitting that she used "physical force against" Majors:
"The police arrived with the paramedics, as is standard procedure, and arrested Mr. Majors due to an NYPD protocol requiring arrest in certain circumstances. On that same day, only 7 and 9 hours later, the woman sent text messages to Mr. Majors admitting that she was the one who used physical force against him."
The attorney continued by saying that Majors' girlfriend "disavowed any allegations" of wrongdoing on the actor's part and confirmed the narrative that Majors initially called the police:
"She also disavowed any allegations that he had done anything to her and confirmed that Mr. Majors called 911 because of her mental condition. These are those messages, redacting the woman’s name for her privacy."
