Video has emerged of the moment Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. allegedly made contact with a woman’s leg and breast in a New York nightclub. The legal team for Gooding, who was paraded in handcuffs on Thursday by the NYPD after he was charged with forcible touching, claim the tape exonerates Gooding.
