The incident began when she and Majors got into an argument while returning home from a bar in Brooklyn. The alleged argument occurred in the backseat of a taxi.

A spokesperson for Majors said. “He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.” Police responded to a 911 call from a location in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan at about 11:14 a.m. Saturday, where a woman, said she had been assaulted by Majors. Upon a preliminary investigation, It was determined that the woman was injured in what appears to be a domestic dispute.
