Hollywood actor, Cuba Gooding Jr has been arrested after he turned himself in to face allegation of groping a lady.
The actor was accused few days ago by a lady of groping her when they were having a social time at a night club in Manhattan, New York.
The 29-year old woman said the actor was highly intoxicated when he groped her at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on 7th Avenue in Midtown. She said she then got into a heated argument with him which had to be broken you by security.
Speaking to press on Wednesday, Cuba Gooding Jr. denied the allegations.
“I trust the system and the process,” he said. “There’s a tape that shows what really happened. That’s the most important thing.”
His lawyer Mark Heller recently claimed that the actor did nothing wrong as seen in a surveillance video which captured the whole evening from the night club.
According to Heller, the video shows no touching, no hugging and nothing inappropriate between the two.
However, a source in the NYPD who has seen the video claims it goes in line with the woman’s narration.
‘I saw the video and there’s no doubt he touches her breast,’ the source said. ‘We’re not going against the victim. The video corroborates what she said.’
‘It’s a quick thing,’ he said of the alleged groping. ‘He’s drunk, he’s all over her. He puts his hands on her lap then touches her breast.’
‘You don’t notice a reaction immediately,’ the source noted, but said the woman did call 911 to report the incident.
