Believe or not, Cuba Gooding Jr. is a WANTED MAN!
An arrest warrant has been issued for the actor after he allegedly pushed a female bartender, not only once but twice for asking him to leave the bar, Celebuzz reported.
“There has been an arrest warrant issued for [Cuba Gooding Jr.] for municipal battery,” Remi Braden, the Director of Public Affairs for the New Orleans Police Dept., told Celebuzz exclusively.
“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.”
A spokesperson for Gooding was not immediately available for comment.
Now that’s not good news at all!
The actor is currently in town filming the new Lee Daniels movie The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and Jane Fonda, among others.
Cuba Gooding Jr. won a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his role in the 1996 movie “Jerry Maguire.”
