Cuba Gooding Jr. hands himself in to NYPD following sexual misconduct allegation

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

In 2012, a New Orleans bartender accused Gooding of pushing her after she asked him to leave the establishment.

"I trust the system", he told a videographer.

He faces one misdemeanor account of forcible touching in an incident that occurred on Sunday when an unidentified woman said Gooding touched her breasts at the bar.

Gooding denies the allegations. However, his attorney Mark Heller told TMZ on Wednesday night that upon viewing surveillance video from the bar in the new case, he was unsure if Gooding would turn himself in, because it proves "absolutely no criminality taking place on the part of my client".

"The NYPD takes sexual assault extremely seriously and urges anyone who has been a victim to file a police report so we can perform a comprehensive investigation, and offer support and services to survivors", police said in a statement on Monday (Jun. 10).

The Manhattan District Attorney's office declined comment.

'There's a tape that shows what really happens and that's all.

He told TMZ that he was at the bar partying with friends but didn't touch anyone.

Asked about the reported allegation on Monday, NYPD spokesman Detective Martin Brown said, "We don't really have anything official to say about it other than that there's been an allegation and that it is now under investigation".

Videos posted on social media show Gooding at the Manhattan bar singing the Journey hit "Faithfully" and posing for pictures with fans.

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

Gooding, who broke through with the 1991 film "Boyz N The Hood", won an Oscar in 1997 for his supporting role in "Jerry Maguire". His signature line, "Show me the money", became a popular catchphrase. He also recently scored an Emmy nomination for his performance as O.J. Simpson on FX's "The People v. O.J. Simpson".
