Cuba Gooding Jr. surrendered to police on Thursday, after he earlier fled from a New York City nightclub where a woman accused him of touching her inappropriately. As Fox News reports:

Cuba Gooding Jr. entered a "not guilty" plea on Thursday to two charges: forcible touching and sexual abuse in the third degree, Fox News has confirmed.

The actor entered the New York City courtroom in handcuffs around 6:47 p.m. He smiled a few times but looked nervous. When the arraignment started, he approached judge Jacob Moses and never said a word.

The judge read the charges and Gooding Jr.'s defense attorneys -- Mark Heller, Elizabeth Heller and Peter Toumbekis -- entered the plea and asked for the process to be expedited.

The judge set June 26 as the next court date and released the actor without bail.

Gooding seems confident he can beat the charges in open court.
