Majors was let out of police custody shortly after his arrest, and his lawyers have denied any wrongdoing, casting the 33-year-old actor as being the true victim of the altercation.
His lawyers also claim to have video footage from the vehicle where the incident happened, which would support their account, along with witnesses who can back the actor up.
They also said that the woman, who was known to Majors, has recanted her allegations, and that they expect the charges against the actor will be dropped.
