Cuba Gooding Jr charged in New York over claims he groped woman in bar
OK, good. Allegation made, needs to be tested, court is one of the methods of doing that. We should indeed – fame notwithstanding – be equal in whether we have to face that test of the evidence.
Cuba Gooding Jr. turned himself in
OK, good. Turns up on request to start that testing process. No need to drag him in.
The 51-year-old Oscar-winning star of “Jerry Maguire” denies the allegations and pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse charges at a night court arraignment.
Arraignment. Just getting names and numbers booked into the system so that the testing process can start.
He was released on his own recognizance
“We trust you to turn up again for the next stage.”
Gooding, in a dark blue suit, smiled and waved as he walked into a police station Thursday afternoon to meet with special victims investigators. Inside, they took his fingerprints and a mug shot before leading him out in handcuffs.
Later, Gooding sat on a wooden bench in the front row of an austere courtroom, his hands cuffed behind his back
That’s just ludicrous. Voluntary surrender, released on own – and handcuffs inbetween?
Power mad tossers.
