Cuba Gooding Jr. Wanted For Assaulting Bartender In New Orleans
An arrest warrant has been issued for Cuba Gooding Jr. after the Oscar-winning actor allegedly shoved a female bartender early Tuesday morning in New Orleans, Celebuzz has confirmed.
“There has been an arrest warrant issued for [Gooding Jr.] for municipal battery,” Remi Braden, the Director of Public Affairs for the New Orleans Police Dept., told Celebuzz exclusively. “Apparently he pushed a bartender twice at the bar.”
“He was apparently getting rowdy when people were trying to take photos, and he got aggravated,” Braden continued. “The bartender tried to calm him down, at which time he allegedly pushed her, and before he left the bar he pushed her again.”
“When he left, it was either the bartender or her boss immediately called the police.”
“We are currently looking for him.”
Gooding Jr., who became a household name after his Oscar-winning performance in Jerry Maguire, is in New Orleans filming the new Lee Daniels movie The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and Jane Fonda, among others.
