The trial against Jonathan Majors continued on Tuesday, with two New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers taking the stand.

During the officers’ ensuing testimony, per TMZ, it was revealed that Majors made the “initial call” to authorities. In that call, he’s now revealed to have reported what was described at the time as "an overdose and suicide attempt" involving Grace Jabbari, who has accused the actor of assaulting her during the March 2023 incident.

Jury now shown body camera footage from Majors' apartment in the Chelsea Mercantile building.
NYPD Sgt. Benson explains he was first “checking the nightstand for any pill bottles or remnants of pills…the initial 911 call we got was a female had overdosed and attempted suicide.”

However, one officer testified on Tuesday that they did not see evidence at the scene of an overdose or attempted suicide. Also on Tuesday, jurors viewed body cam footage of the day in question.

He went over to talk with her + other officers in closet. Jabbari said "That she was struck in the head several times and that the defendant had grabbed her by the throat."

Majors has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him in the case. In several statements issued through a rep, it has been alleged that Majors was attacked during the incident.

"From the beginning, we have said Jonathan Majors is innocent and provably the victim here," lawyer Priya Chaudhry said in a statement sent to media outlets back in June.

Opening statements in Majors’ trial began at the top of last week. If convicted as charged, he faces up to a year behind bars.
