Cuba Gooding Jr. kinasuhan sa panghihipo
Sumuko na sa New York police ang Oscar winner na si Cuba Gooding Jr. dahil may isang college student na nag-akusa sa kanya ng panghihipo.
Ayon sa naturang college girl, biglang hinawakan daw ng 51-year old aktor ang kanyang dibdib habang nasa loob sila ng Magic Hour bar.
Sey naman ni Cuba na walang gano’ng nangyari at naniniwala siya na mapapatunayan ang pagiging inosente niya.
“I trust the process and the system. There’s a tape that shows what real-ly happened. That’s the most important thing.”
Kinasuhan ang aktor ng one count of misdemeanor forcible touching. Sa report ng TMZ, tumawag ang victim sa 911 pagkatapos siyang hipuan sa dibdib ni Cuba.
Ayon sa attorney ni Cuba na si Mark Heller: “I reviewed more than two hours of footage from Sunday night and there is no evidence of a crime.”
Ayon sa report: “The actor appears to reach over to place his hand on her thigh, and then moves his hand toward her chest. She puts her hand on his.
The pivotal question is… does she push his hand away or allow him to kiss her hand? A second video shows the woman approaching security about a half hour later as Cuba and Claudine kiss on a nearby couch.”
Nag-plead “not guilty” si Cuba and he was released without bail. Ang courtdate ay naka-set on June 26. (Ruel Mendoza)
