This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, testimonies from the driver and others who saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman retracting these allegations. All the evidence proves that Mr. Majors is entirely innocent and did not assault her in any way. Unfortunately, this incident happened because this woman was having an emotional breakdown, for which she was taken to hospital yesterday. The NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and that is the only reason Mr. Majors was arrested. We anticipate that these charges will soon be dropped.
