Cuba Gooding Jr to turn himself in over groping accusation

Cuba Gooding Jr Groping Allegation

The charge stems from an accusation that the actor groped a woman on Sunday at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar, a claim that Gooding Jr. has denied. "I met a bunch of people, I said hello, I took pictures and ... you know, you have to have faith in what people are saying ... now I'm giving the process the chance to show what happened, what went down".

A woman says she was at a bar near Times Square Sunday night when Cuba Gooding Jr. groped her breasts.

The NYPD's Special Victims Division is investigating the alleged incident.

According to reports, the pair got into an argument after the alleged incident and it was broken up by security.

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.

Asked if "there was any groping involved", Gooding said "no, nothing". In that case, a bartender said the actor was agitated with patrons who wanted photos with him and that he pushed her when she asked him to leave.
