"There's a tape that shows what really happened", Gooding Jr. said.

Cuba Gooding Jr.is expected to surrender to NY police sometime in the next few hours for questioning in an alleged groping incident, several media outlets report.

Page Six reported on Monday that Gooding, 51, was at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in Midtown Manhattan around 9 p.m. when the alleged incident occurred.

The actor plans to turn himself in and be booked on a misdemeanor charge of forcible touching, according to a report published Wednesday by TMZ.

TMZ caught up with Gooding late Tuesday as he was about to board a flight back to New York City from Los Angeles, where he said he is "absolutely not" guilty of what he's been accused of.

"I was at a club, I left, I met a bunch of people, said hello and took pictures and, you know, you have to have faith in what people say".
