Cuba Gooding Jr. surrenders while denying allegations

According to a report from CNN, Cuba Gooding Junior will probably speak with the New York Police Department following allegations that he groped a woman in the early hours of the morning on Sunday night in Manhattan, New York.

"I was at a club, I left, I met a bunch of people, said hello and took pictures and, you know, you have to have faith in what people say".

Gooding, the Oscar-winning star of Jerry Maguire is expected to face a charge stemming from an alleged incident over the weekend at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge, lawyer Mark Heller said.

Ottawa passes legislation that bans whale and dolphin captivity in Canada
The passage of the law has been lauded by animal-rights activists, who have campaigned against dolphins in captivity for decades. The Vancouver Aquarium announced previous year that it would no longer house cetaceans and has one dolphin left at its facility.

The unidentified woman claimed that she went to get water for Cuba who was "highly intoxicated" and he groped her breasts, leading them to get into an argument that had to be broken up by security. Gooding revealed that he will turn himself into the NYPD's Special Victim's Unit on Thursday, the same group of investigators who are handling the case. He also said "absolutely not" when asked if he was guilty. In 2012, a male bartender in New Orleans claims Gooding Junior pushed him. "There's a tape that shows what really happened - that's the most important thing".

Six years later, he won an Oscar for his role as a professional football player in Jerry Maguire.

Gooding was nominated for an Emmy Award previous year for playing O.J. Simpson in the FX series "The People v. O.J. Simpson" and recently appeared on Broadway and London's West End as lawyer Billy Flynn in "Chicago".
