Cuba Gooding Jr Turns Himself In After Groping Allegation

A woman told New York police that the actor grabbed her breast at a nightclub on Sunday night.

Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in to a New York police station, days after a woman accused him of groping her at a nightclub.

Police had been investigating a possible charge of forcible touching, an NYPD spokeswoman told HuffPost on Monday.

Gooding was seen leaving in handcuffs later in the day:

The 30-year-old woman filed a police report saying that on Sunday night, a “highly intoxicated” Gooding grabbed her breast, leading to a confrontation that was broken up by security, according to the New York Post.

Gooding’s lawyer denied the allegation.

In 2012, three women accused Gooding of sexually harassing them at a bar in New Mexico, including grabbing their breasts and buttocks. He denied their claims as “bullshit” at the time.
