Jonathan Majors' Driver Testifies He Didn’t See The Actor Hit His Ex-Girlfriend

Majors’ domestic violence trial is beginning to wind down.

Jonathan Majors’ domestic assault trial is coming to an end as the sole witness to the alleged altercation at the center of it testified in Manhattan Criminal Court on Monday (December 11).

According to the New York Post, Naweed Sarwar, the driver of the black SUV the famed actor was in with his then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari, told the jury that he didn’t see Majors strike Jabbari on March 25 as he was looking “straight ahead” at the road.

Additionally, Sarwar had “a feeling the girl had hit the boy…because of the way that she was fighting, and the sounds produced,” though he did not describe what led him to believe that it was Jabbari who hit Majors during the car service ride from dinner in Brooklyn to Manhattan.

Sarwar did note that he saw Majors push Jabbari back inside the car when it pulled over in Chinatown after the scuffle, which is the one part of the incident that was captured by surveillance.

“He was trying to throw her in the car,” he testified. “He was saying, ‘Leave me alone. I have to go.'”

During the trial, Jabbari testified that the incident erupted when she snatched away Majors’ phone after she discovered evidence that he was allegedly cheating on her. During cross-examination by Majors’ lawyers, Sarwar testified that no blood could be found inside the back seat of the vehicle after the then-couple exited the car.

Dr. William Chiang, who treated Jabbari at Bellevue Hospital after the alleged assault, testified on Monday that she had a broken right middle finger and a cut on the back of her right ear that was “consistent” with her narrative that Majors attacked her.

That said, the physician also noted that in many cases, someone who sustained a blow to the ear and head area where Jabbari says she was struck would have been bleeding immediately.

Majors has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and harassment charges. He’s also denied any wrongdoing.
