Jonathan Majors’ Attorney Blames NYPD ‘Racism’ For Assault Arrest

Lyndon Abioye |

An attorney for Jonathan Majors has blasted the NYPD for the star’s arrest for allegedly physically assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Priya Chaudhry told Insider that Majors had hoped the misdemeanor-assault charges would be dropped by Manhattan prosecutors.

Chaudhry wrote a letter to Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Rachel S. Pauley claiming that Majors’ arrest was “racist.” She also claimed that the officers involved questioned how he could afford to live in a luxury triplex penthouse.

“Even though Ms. Jabbari admitted to drinking to the point of throwing up, taking sleeping pills, and having no idea how she woke up in a closet with a cut on her head and injured finger, the police jumped to the conclusion that Mr. Majors (the young, tall, strong, rich Black man) must have ‘done this’ to Ms. Jabbari,” she wrote.

Speaking to Extra, she added, “Within a few weeks of these false allegations, we provided the District Attorney with evidence of Mr. Majors’ innocence. Last week, we delivered additional compelling evidence to the District Attorney, clearly proving Grace Jabbari’s assault on Jonathan Majors and not the other way around. This evidence includes videos of Ms. Jabbari’s frenzied attack on Mr. Majors and his running away from her. We also provided photographs illustrating the injuries she inflicted on Mr. Majors and photos of his clothing torn as a direct consequence of Ms. Jabbari’s violent actions.”

Majors is due back in court next on August 3.
