Cuba Gooding Jr.’s attorney, Mark Heller, tells us he has viewed surveillance video from the bar and says it shows “absolutely no criminality taking place on the part of my client.”
Heller says he’s contacted the Manhattan D.A.’s Office Sex Crimes Unit but has not gotten a return phone call. He is trying to find out if they’ve seen the surveillance video. Heller says he can’t believe they would seek to arrest Cuba … if they’d seen the video.
He says it’s up in the air right now as to whether Cuba will turn himself in Thursday, as they’d planned, now that they’ve seen the video.
The outlet’s original report stated that Gooding was going to surrender to police for the misdemeanor charge of forcible groping.Follow @â€˜magicbaltimoreâ€™
