Majors, 33, was taken into custody following a 911 call made from an apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, according to a statement from the New York Police Department.

An attorney for Majors, Priya Chaudhry, said the actor is “completely innocent” and was “provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.”

“We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently,” Chaudhry said in a statement Sunday.

That evidence would include two written statements from the woman recanting the allegations, the attorney claimed, as well as video footage from a vehicle where the incident purportedly occurred and testimony from the driver and other witnesses.

In the wake of the allegations, the US Army announced it is pulling two recently released recruiting ads featuring Majors, saying in a statement it was “deeply concerned.”

“While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete,” the statement from the Army Enterprise Marketing Office said.
