Cuba Gooding Jr. to turn himself in to NYPD on groping allegations

Cuba Gooding Jr.’s Lawyer Defends Him After He’s Accused Of Groping A Woman Chuck Hodes FOX

Cuba Gooding Jr. was charged with forcible touching of a woman, Fox News confirms.

The woman said Gooding was "highly intoxicated" and explained that they got into an argument after he inappropriately touched her and she resisted, according to Page Six.

"There's not a scintilla of criminal culpability that can be contributed to Mr. Cuba Gooding Jr.", Heller said. But it certainly doesn't help Gooding's case with the alleged Magic Hour groping incident, which was reported to police on June 9.

Gooding was set to turn himself in to police for the more recent case, but his lawyer said he's reconsidering after video emerged that allegedly shows he did nothing wrong. "It is not uncommon for people to come out of the woodwork when these things happen".

Heller reportedly reached out to Manhattan's Sex Crimes Unit, but hasn't heard back from them.

Gooding was involved in another bar-related incident in New Orleans in 2012.

Martinez, preparing to play Scotland in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Tuesday night, insists Hazard has made the right move. Eden is an example to all of a player who can go back to all his old clubs with his head held high.

"He will be arrested for forcible touching, but the charges will be determined by the ADA", a law enforcement source said of the allegation.

He told TMZ that he was at the bar partying with friends but didn't touch anyone. Gooding's lawyer said security video will exonerate the actor.

"I trust the system, let the process speak for itself", he said.

Previously released video posted on social media shows Gooding at Magic Hour on Sunday night singing the Journey hit "Faithfully" and posing for pictures with fans.

The bar, on the roof of the Moxy Hotel south of Times Square, features a mini-golf course and sweeping views of the Empire State Building and other Big Apple landmarks.

Heller says he plans to "vigorously defend" the Boyz n the Hood and Jerry Maguire actor. His signature line, "Show me the money", became a popular catchphrase. In 2016, he was nominated for an Emmy for playing OJ Simpson in the miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson.
