Hollywood prolific actor, Cuba Gooding Jr. was arrested on Thursday on allegations of forcibly touching a woman. The actor turned himself into authorities at about 2 p.m., where he was arrested for the misdemeanor charge Detective Martin Brown told The Washington Post.
According to police, Gooding, touched a woman without her consent on Sunday night in Midtown Manhattan. She filed a police report.
The address provided by police is where the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge at Moxy Times Square is located. Gooding’s lawyer, Mark Heller, told the Associated Press that video from the bar showed his client did not commit a crime and “there is not the slightest scintilla of inappropriate conduct on his part.”
A spokesman for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office declined to comment.
Gooding denied the accusations when approached by TMZ on Wednesday.
I trust the system and the process,” he said.
“There’s a tape that shows what really happened. That’s the most important thing.”
