New Orleans police say an arrest warrant has been issued for actor Cuba Gooding Jr. after an incident at a Bourbon. The “Red Tails” actor allegedly shoved a female bartender Tuesday morning.
Gooding was apparently getting rowdy when people were trying to take photos, and he got aggravated. The bartender tried to calm him down, at which time he allegedly pushed her, and before he left the bar he pushed her again.
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.
