Cuba Gooding Jr has pleaded not guilty to forcible touching and sexual abuse after a woman accused the actor of groping her.

The 51-year-old Oscar-winning actor was arraigned on Thursday after turning himself in to police.

He smiled as he entered the courtroom in handcuffs and led by two officers.

A 29-year-old woman told police Gooding placed his hand on her breast while he was drunk on Sunday night in a bar in New York City.

Gooding’s lawyer said security video will exonerate the Jerry Maguire star.

“Mr Gooding has not acted inappropriately in any shape or form,” he said.

“Nothing in the video could even be considered ambiguous, and I frankly am shocked and horrified that this case is being prosecuted.”

Gooding’s next court appearance will be on 26 June.
