Details of the attack
TMZ reports that the police were informed of an incident involving Majors and his girlfriend. The altercation began when they were travelling home, after she noticed another woman was exchanging texts with him and attempted to peek into his phone. This made her boyfriend become enraged, causing him to grab her hand before slapping her in the face. Furthermore, according to witnesses, he also put both hands around her neck during this assault.
