AceShowbiz - A previously unknown allegation of sexual misconduct against Cuba Gooding Jr. has been dismissed due to a lack of evidence.
The Oscar winner has been accused of groping over a dozen women in public, but a new case alleging the star grabbed a woman's bottom at a party in Los Angeles has been dropped, with law enforcement sources telling TMZ they didn't feel they had enough evidence to charge the actor with a crime.
The alleged event is believed to have taken place some time in the past 12 months, and was reported to the police who turned it over to the L.A. City Attorney for misdemeanour sexual battery. However, the City Attorney rejected the case in August because of a lack of evidence.
Cuba's attorney Mark Heller told the publication: "Cuba doesn't recall this case. He's out every night of his life. He meets so many people. He interacts with so many people - he can't remember all the people he meets".
The "Jerry Maguire" star appeared in court in New York on Tuesday, October 15, for an arraignment on four misdemeanour counts of forcible touching and third degree sexual abuse. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
Cuba is due back in court on 13 December.
