Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. Charged with Sexual Assault

From CBS News:

Cuba Gooding Jr.'s lawyer said Thursday security video will exonerate the actor from allegations he groped a woman at a New York City night spot. Video from Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge in Manhattan showed no criminality on Gooding's part, his lawyer Mark Heller told The Associated Press.

"There is not the slightest scintilla of inappropriate conduct on his part," Heller said. Gooding, 51, smiled and waved when he turned himself in Thursday to investigators in the New York Police Department's special victims division. A 29-year-old woman told police the Oscar-winning "Jerry Maguire" star grabbed her breast while he was intoxicated around 11:15 p.m. Sunday. Gooding denies the allegations. He is expected to be charged with forcible touching and will enter a not guilty plea, Heller said. Speaking to reporters, Heller said the woman who made the allegation is seen on the video following Gooding around, and at one point, she was asked to leave him alone. "That individual must have been unhappy about being rebuffed, and apparently went and made this false complaint," Heller said.
