According to the complaint, the accuser alleges that the defendant struck her in the face with an open hand, resulting in significant pain and a laceration behind her ear. She further alleges that he placed his hand on her neck, causing bruising and substantial discomfort.
Majors was arrested on Saturday in Manhattan for an alleged domestic dispute. He faces multiple charges including assault in the third degree, attempted assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, and harassment in the second degree.
According to the DA’s office, Majors was released on his own recognizance by a judge who also granted a limited order of protection.

His criminal defense lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, is currently gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will soon be dropped.
The representative for Majors denied the allegations and stated that he has done nothing wrong. They expressed a desire to clear his name and resolve the situation.
