Cuba Gooding jr. Was arrested on Thursday, because he allegedly touched a woman in a nightclub last Sunday. He was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.
The 51-year-old Oscar winner reported himself earlier in the day, and the New York police now confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that he is currently in custody.
The actor was out on a Sunday night at a club in Manhattan when he was talking to a woman. The thirty-year-old woman says the actor has touched her breasts. According to her, Gooding Jr. was heavily influenced at the time.
The woman says she said something about the actor’s cross-border behavior and that the two then got into a fight. Security had to be added to appease the fight. Camera images show that Gooding Jr. left the club shortly after the 9:00 PM incident. The woman still called the police around 1 am.
Gooding Jr. is best known for roles in films such as Jerry Maguire , for which he won an Oscar and was later seen as OJ Simpson in American Crime Story.
