Cuba Gooding Jr. surrenders after groping allegation lawyer says he’s ‘frisky

Gooding's lawyer, Mark Heller, said security video from Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge showed "not the slightest scintilla of inappropriate conduct" on his part and will exonerate him.

Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in to NY police to face an expected charge of groping a woman in a Manhattan bar over the weekend - an allegation he denies.

The woman who was allegedly groped by Cuba Gooding Jr. says she was trying to help the actor while he was very intoxicated.

Heller said Gooding had "no knowledge" of the alleged 2008 incident, which falls outside the statute of limitations for any potential charges.

"I trust the system, and the process speaks for itself", Cuba stated.

In 2012, a group of women claimed he fondled them in a New Mexico bar, but Gooding Jr.

"Responding cops searched the area for Gooding but did not find him", continues the site. "And I am frankly shocked the prosecutor would consider a case like this".

It was believed that the Premier League side wanted closer to £115m for Hazard , but it seems they have made a decision to sell for less.

Heller said he contacted the Manhattan District Attorney's Office Sex Crimes Unit but had not gotten a return phone call.

"I have known Cuba for nearly 30 years and his conduct towards women is always respectful", he says.

In a video posted on TMZ.com, Gooding denied that he had groped anyone.

Police issued a misdemeanor battery warrant for his arrest, CNN reported at the time, but the bartender eventually dropped all charges.

Police sources that spoke to TMZ said the woman brought Cuba a cup of water while he was in the middle of karaoke and partying because she assumed he was drunk.

The bar, on the roof of the Moxy Hotel near Times Square, features a mini-golf course and sweeping views of the Empire State Building and other Big Apple landmarks.

Gooding, a native of New York's Bronx borough, rose to fame after starring in Boyz N the Hood in 1991. His character's signature line, "Show me the money", became a catchphrase.
