Opening statements begin in Jonathan Majors assault trial in New York

NEW YORK (AP) — Opening statements began Monday in the criminal trial of actor Jonathan Majors, who was charged last spring for allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend during an argument. Majors was arrested in March on charges of misdemeanor assault and harassment after allegedly striking his then-girlfriend in the back of a car. His attorneys have maintained that the woman, Grace Jabbari, was the aggressor. The arrest has effectively stalled the career of Majors, a breakout star in Creed III who was being set up as the next great supervillain in the Marvel multiverse. Majors did not speak as he entered the courtroom on Monday.
