Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. revealed he plans to surrender Thursday to NYPD over allegations he groped a woman Sunday at a New York City bar.

Gooding was accused of groping the 30-year-old woman around 9 p.m. Sunday while he was "highly intoxicated" inside Midtown's Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on Seventh Avenue, the woman claimed. Gooding Jr. has maintained that he's innocent and claimed there is video evidence to prove it.

"There's a tape that shows what really happened - that's the most important thing", the "The People v. O.J. Simpson" star told TMZ. "I believe in the system and let the process speak for itself". After the alleged incident, the woman reportedly got into an argument with Gooding that had to be broken up by security and he was seen leaving the nightclub shortly after.

There's also a built-in "Game Assistant" that can boost performance when playing games and limit distractions. The HTC U19e isn't a follow-up to the HTC U12 Plus though, as it targets the upper mid-range price bracket.

Cuba Gooding Jr.is expected to surrender to NY police sometime in the next few hours for questioning in an alleged groping incident, several media outlets report.

Asked if "there was any groping involved", Gooding said "no, nothing". "The victim later told cops she protested at the unwanted touching and they argued about the encounter".

The woman later called 911 and reported the incident around 1 a.m. The unnamed female bartender told police Gooding Jr. stopped by the Old Absinthe House in the French Quarter and soon became angry with other patrons who recognized him and wanted to take pictures with him. The bartender later dropped all charges, according to reporting from CNN.
