Cuba Gooding Jr. charged with misdemeanor forcible touching

According to the New York Times, a woman told police that the 51-year-old Oscar-winning actor touched her breasts at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge on 7th Avenue in Manhattan.

Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. was charged on Thursday with forcible touching after a woman accused him of groping her at a Manhattan bar last weekend, New York City police said.

The 51-year-old Oscar-winning actor has been accused of groping a woman's breast at a bar in NY on Sunday evening.

Heller said he doubted the accuser would show up at court hearings and suggested prosecutors should charge her with perjury if she testified in court and her allegations were contradicted by video.

After reviewing the security video, Heller said he was hesitant to let Gooding surrender but chose to go through with it.

In a video posted by TMZ, Gooding denied any inappropriate conduct and said he trusts the legal system.
