Following the alleged altercation she was taken to a local hospital and is currently in stable condition.

Meanwhile the actor was cuffed and taken to jail right away, as police ‘felt there was enough evidence for probable cause.’ 

Cops were called to the scene around 11AM, near the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. 

The Santa Barbara born entertainer is reportedly now out of custody. 

Meanwhile the NYPD released a statement to TheWrap that read, ‘A preliminary investigation determined that a 33-year-old male was involved in a domestic dispute with a 30 year-old female. The victim informed police she was assaulted. Officers placed the 33-year-old male into custody without incident.’ 

The news comes on the heels of a number of blockbusters the actor recently starred in, including Creed III opposite Michael B. Jordan, as well as Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. 

The actor was also present at the Oscars earlier this month, and served as one of the many presenters. 

Majors took to the stage with his co-star Michael B. Jordan to present the award for Best Cinematography.
