Cuba Gooding Jr. will turn himself into the NYPD on Thursday and will be arrested for allegedly groping a woman, he tells TMZ. He insists he did nothing wrong, and that there should be video to prove his innocence.
Gooding was en route form L.A. to NYC when he spoke with TMZ. A woman is accusing Gooding Jr. of groping her breasts at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Manhattan. He claims he was there partying, but did nothing untoward.
Sources tell TMZ that Gooding Jr. will surrender at the Manhattan Special Victim’s Unit, alongside his lawyers, Peter Toumbekis and Mark J. Heller. He’s expecting to be fingerprinted and have a mugshot taken. But he trusts the system, and the evidence, he tells TMZ.
