Cuba Gooding, Jr. had a rough go of it for a few years there. After an Oscar-award winning performance in Jerry Maguire, he had some pretty unremarkable roles in movies like Snow Dogs, Boat Trip, and Daddy Day Care. However, with his current role as O.J. Simpson in American Crime Story, things are looking up for the 48-year old actor. So good, in fact, that he recently spent a weekend in Miami at the popular clubs LIV and Story.

Things got a little out of hand for Cuba, unfortunately, as he spent nights in both nightclubs with his shirt off, performing unrecommended stunts in front of hoards of people with cameras on their phones. First, at Story…

“He hopped on stage shirtless during DJ Kaskade’s set and started spraying the crowd with a CO2 cannon. He was dancing up a storm,” says Page Six‘s source. “He ripped off his shirt and hopped on top of the DJ booth and went crazy. He was having a good time.”

That was apparently on Saturday. Then Sunday rolled around, and this happened at LIV…

Yep, Cuba tried to eat someone’s phone. You can almost see the thought process going: “Oh, what’s this? This looks good. That’s mine. Om nom nom… nah, nevermind. Here you go!” It’s comical.

He even got ahold of a CO2 cannon at Kaskade!

Clearly, this man was in town to party.
