Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. intends to turn himself in to New York City police after a woman accused him of groping her at a Manhattan bar over the weekend, NBC News reported on Wednesday, citing Gooding's representative.
Heller said Gooding had "no knowledge" of the alleged 2008 incident, which falls outside the statute of limitations for any potential charges.
Gooding did not discuss his case as he left court, instead offering well wishes to David Ortiz, the Boston Red Sox star hospitalized after he was shot Sunday in the Dominican Republic. Gooding was charged with a misdemeanour count of forcible touching for allegedly groping a woman at a night club. "It is not uncommon for people to come out of the woodwork when these things happen".
Cuba Gooding Jr., who won an Oscar for his role in Jerry Maguire, has more recently appeared on Broadway and London's West End as lawyer Billy Flynn in Chicago. Police say the alleged victim #2 claimed she met with Gooding at the Butter Restaurant in Midtown, and he supposedly grab her butt during the encounter. In 2012, the "American Horror Story" star was accused of shoving a female bartender in New Orleans, but the woman later decided not to press charges. "I trust the system, and the process speaks for itself", Cuba stated.
