A representative of Majors later issued a statement to IGN, claiming the actor was innocent of any wrongdoing. "He has done nothing wrong,” the statement reads. “We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up."

The charges against Majors may carry significant legal consequences. Strangulation, assault, and harassment are all serious crimes which can result in significant penalties including fines and jail time. The arrest is also likely to have an impact on his career, potentially affecting his ability to secure future roles or even work on existing projects.

The news about the arrest comes in the context of a growing awareness about domestic violence and abuse. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one in four women and one in nine men experience severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime. Domestic violence is a serious issue that affects millions of people each year and it remains critically important that anyone who experiences abuse is able to get the help and support they need.
