Cuba Gooding Jr. Arrested & Charged for Alleged Groping



NEW YORK, NY – JUNE 13: Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is seen after turning himself in to the New York police on June 13, 2019 in New York City. Gooding was charged with a misdemeanor count of forcible touching for allegedly groping a woman at a night club. 

Hollywood star Cuba Gooding Jr. has been arrested and charged with forcible touching, a misdemeanor, after a 29-year old woman filed a police report claiming the Oscar winner grabbed her breast at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Manhattan on Sunday.

CNN reports that Gooding Jr. voluntarily surrendered to the NYPD for questioning on Thursday.

His attorney Mark Heller, in a press conference said his client has been cooperative with police, adding that he’s analysed more than 2 hours of video from the night and nothing shows Gooding Jr. commit a crime.

Gooding Jr. has also denied the claims, calling on his fans to trust the system to exonerate him.

A law enforcement source told CNN that the victim said she was with friends when she was confronted by a male patron whom she described as Gooding Jr.

“The male allegedly groped her breasts. The victim later told cops she protested at the unwanted touching and they argued about the encounter,” the source added.

The woman called 911 and reported the incident.
