NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP)-- Cuba Gooding Jr.'s trial on groping charges began this Thursday and the prosecutor announced in court that an additional charge has been lodged against him.

No word on what the exact charge is.

The actor is accused of placing his hand on a 29-year-old woman's breast and squeezing it without her consent at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge near Times Square on June 9.

The woman told police she believed Gooding was intoxicated.

Gooding later requested to have his case thrown out, but was rejected and faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
