Cuba Gooding Jr. just showed up to the NYPD's Special Victims Unit in Harlem, New York to face charges he allegedly groped a woman at a nightclub.

The "Jerry Maguire" star arrived in a suit and tie and waved briefly to fans and media as he made his way inside.

It is expected he will be charged with forcible touching, which is a misdemeanor.

His attorney, Mark Heller, told the New York Daily News, "Nobody is happy to be in this position, but I can tell you he’s feeling extremely confident and has great trust in the legal system. He has no concern he’ll ever be convicted. It’s just a terrible ordeal."

According to the NYPD, a 30-year-old woman accused the "Jerry Maguire" star of grabbing her breast while they were at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in Manhattan on Sunday night.

The woman told police Gooding Jr. was "highly intoxicated" at the time, reports Page Six, and the two got into an argument after the alleged incident that had to be broken up by security.

The Blast obtained video taken Sunday at the Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in NYC where the alleged incident happened.

In the video, Cuba is seen speaking Portuguese into the camera with an attractive woman by his side. They look to be having a good time, and she later wrote, "Nice to meet you man. You’re amazing."

Later, Cuba could be seen (and heard) belting out the lyrics to Journey's "Faithfully," while sipping on what appeared to be a cocktail.

A second accuser claims that the "Jerry Maguire" grabbed her buttocks at a restaurant in Midtown, reports The New York Daily News. The outlet added that depending on when the incident occured, he might not be charged for the incident if it happened beyond the five-year statute of limitations for this type of sexual assault.
