Video of Cuba Gooding Jr’s Alleged Groping Emerges

As we reported earlier, Cuba Gooding, Jr. was accused of grabbing a woman’s breast at bar. Now TMZ has unearthed the security footage from the alleged incident.

Okay, so we definitely see Cuba put his hand on her leg and chest there, right? But there’s a disagreement about context.

A few seconds later his hand moves up to her breast, and the accuser puts her hand on his. What happens next is open to interpretation — she either pushes his hand back toward him, or he pulls her hand to his mouth and kisses it.

This doesn’t really give us much in the way of context, honestly. Here’s some more from later in the video.

We’ve blurred her face to protect her identity, but she appears to say, “Yes, he did.” She repeated that after the security guard shook his head. It’s unclear if Cuba heard their conversation, but he got up, stumbled and then walked right past the accuser and left.

So Cuba was clearly drunk and horny here, right? We’re all seeing that? It doesn’t look good to me, but it looks good to Cuba.

As we reported, Gooding was arrested Thursday and booked for misdemeanor forcible touching and sexual abuse in the third degree. His attorney, Mark Heller, told us Wednesday he saw “no criminality” on Cuba’s part in the video … something he repeated after the arrest.

I mean, sure, but if you grab someone’s boob and they’re not happy about it, that’s not great. Cuba probably didn’t remember what was going on, he was drunk and I think he grabbed a dude’s dick, did you see that? Anyway, were I him, I probably wouldn’t be as stoked about this video coming out as he seems to be.
