Actor Jonathan Majors was arrested on Saturday in New York on charges of strangulation, assault and harassment.
The star of Creed III and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania was taken into custody after being involved in a “domestic dispute” with a 30-year-old woman, police said.
The woman had minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to hospital, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department (NYPD) said in a statement.
“The victim informed police she was assaulted,” they said.
“Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident.”
Police were called to a Manhattan apartment about 11am on Saturday.
Majors was no longer in police custody as of Saturday night, the NYPD spokesperson confirmed to The Associated Press.

He has also starred in Da 5 Bloods, The Harder They Fall and last year’s Devotion and appears in the recent Sundance Film Festival entry Magazine Dreams.
