Actor Jonathan Majors has been arrested in New York on charges of strangulation, assault, and harassment.

New York City police said Majors, the star of Creed III and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, was involved in a domestic dispute on Saturday with a 30-year-old woman. Police responded at about 11 AM to a 911 call inside an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan.

“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” a police spokesperson said. “Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident. The victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.”

Majors was no longer in police custody as of Saturday night, police said.

A representative for Majors denied any wrongdoing by the actor. “He has done nothing wrong,” the representative said in an email. “We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”

This comes as Majors' star has been rising in Hollywood. He has also been earning early Oscar buzz for his performance in the Sundance movie Magazine Dreams. Marvel has largely built its next several years of movies and TV shows around Majors' character of Kang the Conqueror, who is essentially the franchise's new Thanos-level big bad and is expected to be the villain of the next Avengers film, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
