Grace Jabbari, the woman who has accused actor Jonathan Majors of assaulting her, was arrested on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, for misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor criminal mischief. She was released on a desk appearance.
Jabbari accused Majors of assaulting her in March 2023, but he has denied the allegations. Majors filed a cross complaint against Jabbari in June 2023, alleging that she had assaulted him.
According to law enforcement sources, Jabbari allegedly scratched Majors on the right hand and slapped him across the face with an open hand, causing a cut to his cheek and ear pain.
Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, has said that her client has security footage that shows Jabbari partying all night after the alleged attack. The footage reportedly shows Jabbari walking normally into an establishment, ordering drinks, dancing, and pushing her hair back with the hand she claimed Majors injured.

What Does This Mean for Jonathan Majors?
The arrest of Jabbari is a positive development for Majors. It suggests that the police and prosecutors believe that Jabbari may not be a credible witness. However, the case is not over yet. It is possible that Jabbari could still be convicted of the charges against her, or that Majors could be convicted of the charges against him.
Majors is a rising star in Hollywood. He has starred in films such as “The Harder They Fall,” “Lovecraft Country,” and “Devotion.” He is also set to star in the upcoming films “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.”
The domestic violence case between Majors and Jabbari has cast a shadow over Majors’ career. However, the arrest of Jabbari suggests that Majors may be able to clear his name.
