Jonathan Majors’ assault trial is set to begin today (Nov. 29) in New York. The disgraced actor faces misdemeanor assault and harassment charges related to an incident in March involving his then-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.
Majors walked hand-in-hand with actress Meagan Good as they entered the courtroom. He carried a Bible into the courtroom.
Good had her arm around his shoulders during the jury selection process, a source tells The Messenger.
A judge will hear a motion filed by news organizations to unseal documents that describe previous incidents of violence allegedly committed by Majors.
Sources tell Deadline.com the documents contain information on potential past incidents involving the actor.
Majors, 34, was arrested the night of March 25 after officers responded to a 911 call in Manhattan for an alleged domestic dispute in an Uber. He has pleaded not guilty.
Jabbari told officers Majors twisted her arm, choked her and hit her with an open hand. She was treated at a hospital for bruising, swelling, lacerations and a broken finger, authorities said.
Majors later filed a counter-complaint, claiming Jabbari bloodied him as he tried to restrain her from hitting him when she thought he was texting another woman.
Prosecutors declined to charge Jabbari after she willingly flew to New York from England and turned herself in to police in October.
“The matter is now closed and sealed,” the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said in a statement in October.
Majors faces up to one year in jail if convicted. His acting career is in ruins.
