With the trial regarding Jonathan Majors being accused of domestic battery, it seems that the tables are turning. It’s being reported that the trial has been pushed back and NYPD is now looking for the accuser, who is currently out of the country.
According to Insider, the domestic assault trial against the “Creed III” actor has been pushed back until September 6 due to prosecutors not turning over evidence promptly. Majors’ defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry said that they waited until Wednesday, which was the day before the trial, to turn over a two-terabyte hard drive of evidence.
On Thursday, the prosecution also stated that they are gathering more evidence.
Chaudhry also stated that now the New York Police Department is looking to arrest the accuser, Grace Jabbari when she gets back in the United States.
Last month, Majors filed a domestic violence complaint with the New York Police Department against Jabbari. The incident, which occurred on March 25, 2023, in New York City, has placed his once-lucrative career on hold while this case is pending. Although Majors alleges that his ex-girlfriend Jabbari assaulted him, NYPD police officers did not take action against her.
His attorney had plenty to say in defense of the actor.
“One hundred and thirty-one days ago, authorities unjustly cuffed Jonathan Majors in his own home, hauling him off to jail based on the word of a woman now hunted by the NYPD. Bravely, Jonathan Majors laid bare to the NYPD the relentless, alcohol-fueled abuse he suffered at the hands of Grace Jabbari, an enduring nightmare in their relationship,” according to a written statement she released. “Now, as soon as Jabbari sets foot back in New York, the NYPD stands ready to arrest her.”
The district attorney’s office has access to evidence that supports Majors’ allegations, including surveillance video of the altercation and pictures of his injuries, Chaudhry stated to Insider previously. In May 2023, Chaudhry publicly stated that this case was racially motivated against her client, revealing she handed over substantial evidence that prosecutors should have looked over to see that what had been reported was inaccurate. She said the DA’s office was changing how they were approaching the case to match the changes in Jabbari’s allegations.
Jabbari initially stated that Majors attacked her, broke her finger, twisted her arm, and hit her in the ear — all charges that Majors disputed.
