Gooding Jr. was arrested and charged one count of forcible touching. The charge stemmed from an encounter on June 9 at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar and Lounge in which a woman accused Gooding Jr. of groping her breast.

Gooding Jr. has denied the allegation and his lawyer has pointed at surveillance video as proof that the “Boyz N The Hood” actor didn’t grope the woman.

The new indictment will remain sealed until the hearing Tuesday.
