in prosecutors jonathan majors The case has uncovered an incident involving London police that was not previously reported, which they believe is relevant to his domestic violence allegations.
Majors was arrested in Manhattan on March 25 and is charged with assault and aggravated battery following an alleged domestic dispute with his then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari.
In a new 115-page filing, which was received DiversityProsecutors say they are trying to obtain a copy of the London Metropolitan Police report from September 2022. While it’s not clear what that report contained, the filing references the medical care Jabbari received at that time. Jabbari is a UK citizen, and Majors was in London shooting season two of the Disney+ Marvel series “Loki” during that period.
The development comes a day before Majors is due to return to court for his domestic violence case. Wednesday’s court appearance is expected to be one of the final pre-trial hearings before the judge makes a decision about whether to proceed with or dismiss the case.
The lengthy filing from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is in response to the actor’s motion to dismiss the case. It does not fully lay out the DA’s case, although it is intended to provide enough detail to move the case to trial.

The filing also alleges that Majors’ legal team leaked and misrepresented court evidence, as well as attempted to fabricate a wanted poster with Jabbari’s photo to police. It also dismisses the idea that the DA has any plans to prosecute Jabbari for domestic violence alleged by Major in a counterclaim, contradicting recent media reports that claimed such action was imminent.
The document also provides new details on the events that led to Major’s arrest. According to the filing, on March 25 she and Jabbari were taking a private car service from a Brooklyn party to their Chelsea apartment. Jabbari, who worked with Majors as a movement coach on Disney’s Marvel tentpole “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” saw a text message on Majors’ phone that read, “I wish I was kissing you right now Would.”
He reportedly snatched the phone from her hand to see who had sent the message. Majors then “began to grab the right side of Ms. Jabbari’s body and began snatching Ms. Jabbari’s right middle finger away from the phone, causing bruising, swelling, and significant pain.” The filing continues that Majors “then grabbed Ms. Jabbari’s arm and right hand and twisted Ms. Jabbari’s forearm, causing significant pain to her finger and arm. “The defendant then struck Ms. Jabbari on her right ear, injuring the back of her ear and causing significant pain.”
After getting his phone back, Major got out of the vehicle and Jabbari attempted to follow the actor. Then “the defendant grabbed her, picked her up and threw her back inside… [and] According to the filing, she was in significant pain, including a broken finger, bruises on her body, a laceration behind her right ear and a laceration to her head.
The filing questions several media leaks that portray Jabbari as aggressive. Since the arrest, Major’s criminal defense attorney Priya Chaudhary has alleged that it was Jabbari who attacked Major, and “not the other way around.” Chaudhary also called the case a “witch hunt” that is “rife with explicit and implicit bias.” Majors has pleaded not guilty to the four charges against him; A fifth charge of strangulation was dropped.
Major’s lawyers previously alleged there was a video showing “at least one bystander” […] A call was made to 911 and an NYPD patrol car responded to the location,” and the defendants were “informed that the NYPD had at least one other 911 call from the scene of the altercation.”
But the state is casting doubt on this portrayal of events. An unrelated taxi was stopped nearby and police were called, the DA’s filing says. “This taxi is not connected to the case in any way,” the filing said. It also alleges that “there were no other radio runs, sprint reports or 911 calls from the scene that night.”
Chaudhary has said there is evidence to clear Major of any wrongdoing, including surveillance video that shows Jabbari “completely unharmed” after the defendant’s alleged attack. But the new filing refutes this claim, stating that “the surveillance video referenced by the defense does in fact show Ms. Jabbari distressed, crying, and asking strangers for help in getting an Uber cab home.”
Majors’ team has argued that the DA is hiding relevant information. However, the filing says the DA uncovered a “substantial amount of discovery” including NYPD memo books, phone records, medical records, signed search warrants and related affidavits for the defendant’s iCloud and phones, surveillance video from eight locations and Witness interview notes included. Nine persons.”
The Manhattan DA’s office declined to comment. Major’s lawyers also declined to comment.
In wake of allegations against Majors, Emmy nominee for HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” dropped their PR team Lede at the company, as well as his management, Entertainment 360. WME still represents the actor. As part of the fallout he has been dropped from the feature film “The Man in My Basement”, although “Magazine Dreams”, a drama about a troubled bodybuilder, is still slated for release in December. He also has a major role as the villain Kang the Conqueror in the current installment of Disney’s massive Marvel Cinematic Universe.
