Lawyer Mark Heller said, Gooding, the Oscar-winning star of “Jerry Maguire” is expected to face a charge stemming from an alleged incident over the weekend at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge.

A 29-year-old woman told police Gooding groped her while he was intoxicated Sunday night.

Gooding, denies the allegations.

He told TMZ that he was at the bar partying with friends but didn’t touch anyone. He said there’s a video that shows “what really happened.”

The lawyer expected Gooding to make a statement to the media before getting booked.
