Actor Cuba Gooding Turns Himself In To Police After Groping Charge, Denies Sexual Assault Allegations
Actor Cuba Gooding has been accused of sexual assault in a Manhattan bar this weekend. Gooding is planning on turning himself in to the New York City Police Department.
A TMZ video of Gooding at the Los Angeles International airport shows Gooding denying the claims. “I trust the system,” he says in the video. He’s also heard saying there was a tape from that night that shows what “truly happened.” When asked if “there was any groping involved?” he answered “no, nothing,” and continued to deny the claims by answering “absolutely not,” when asked if he was guilty.
However, the video footage appears to show Gooding assaulting the woman, who remains anonymous. Gooding appears to be groping her breasts.
The decision on whether Gooding will be charged lies with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. Vance was recently involved in a similar case that launched the #MeToo movement when he decided not to charge movie producer Harvey Weinstein when numerous allegations against him.
