Grace Jabbari, the former girlfriend of Marvel actor Jonathan Majors, turned herself in to the New York Police Department (NYPD) on Wednesday night, leading to her arrest on charges of assault and criminal mischief, according to an NYPD spokesperson.
The incident in question occurred seven months ago during a domestic altercation between Jonathan Majors and Grace Jabbari. Both charges against Jabbari are classified as misdemeanors, and she was subsequently released with a desk appearance ticket, as confirmed by the NYPD. Notably, Majors himself had been arrested in March for allegedly assaulting Jabbari.
NBC News has sought to reach out to Grace Jabbari’s attorney for a statement or comment regarding the recent developments.
This week, the Manhattan district attorney’s office stated in a court filing that they would “decline to prosecute any charges brought by the NYPD against Ms. Jabbari related to the belated allegations made by defendant [Majors] regarding the incident on March 25, 2023.” This declaration essentially implies that Jabbari will not face prosecution for any crime related to this case.
In response to Jabbari’s arrest, NBC News has also made efforts to contact the Manhattan district attorney for further commentary.
Just hours before Jabbari’s arrest, a judge ruled against a motion to dismiss the assault case against Jonathan Majors and subsequently scheduled a trial date for November 29.
Jonathan Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, has consistently maintained her client’s innocence, asserting that the actor was, in fact, the one who was assaulted.
At the time of Majors’ initial arrest, the police reported that Jabbari had “sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition” following an altercation with Majors in a taxi. The couple had been in a relationship for several years prior to the incident.
Jonathan Majors, a California native and a graduate of Yale, had experienced a meteoric rise in Hollywood before the allegations came to light. He had notable roles in films such as “Creed III,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” and the critically acclaimed 2019 independent film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco.” Additionally, he is set to appear in the upcoming Marvel film, “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.” The legal proceedings surrounding this case continue to unfold, drawing attention from both the entertainment industry and the public at large.
