Cuba Gooding Jr., is accused of drunkenly groping a woman’s breast in a New York bar Sunday, says he’s innocent and will turn himself in to the New York sex-crimes detectives Thursday.
Nothing happened, Gooding, 51, declared to a paparazzo at the Los Angeles International Airport as he prepared to board a flight Tuesday night.
In a video of the interview posted by TMZ, Gooding said he was at the bar, met people, took pictures with fans but rejected any suggestion he touched someone inappropriately on purpose or by accident.

I believe the girl who accused Cuba Gooding Jr. of assault 100%. He was at my friends birthday party last year & made unprovoked lewd remarks to several girls (including to me) & stuck his hand up a girls romper when she asked for a photo (she was upset). https://t.co/hFDGie3Myb
