Cuba Gooding Jr.: Wanted By Police For Battery

by at . Comments

Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. is a wanted man after he allegedly shoved a New Orleans bartender twice in an altercation early Tuesday.

Gooding's attorney in NYC, Peter Toumbekis, contacted New Orleans police on behalf of his Los Angeles-based client yesterday, authorities said.

So what went down, allegedly, in the Big Easy?

Police issued a battery arrest warrant after a female bartender told them the actor entered a Bourbon Street bar with a group and became "very aggravated" after other customers recognized and asked for photos with him.

When the bartender approached Cuba Gooding Jr. and asked him to calm down, the actor pushed her away with an open hand, she told police.

One of the bartender’s coworkers then called 911 about 3 a.m.

The bartender allegedly told Gooding the police were on the way and he needed to leave. Police said Gooding pushed her again and left the bar.

Yikes. Here's hoping this gets squared away.
