Police in New Orleans have issued an arrest warrant for the actor Gooding Gooding Jr. after he was accused of shoving a female bartender this morning.
The New Orleans Police Department say a misdemeanor battery warrant was issued after cops received a complaint that Cuba got physical at The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street around 2:00 AM.
A witness at the bar said Cuba got upset with some bar patrons who recognized him and had been taking pictures. Cuba began cussing at the people … that’s when a female bartender approached the actor and asked him to leave.
Witness says Cuba didn’t go quietly. He shoved the bartender against a wall. 911 was called but no arrests were made at the scene. Cops are now under orders to arrest Cuba on sight. Cuba is currently in New Orleans to film “The Butler” with Oprah.
