Warrant issued for Cuba Gooding Jr.’s arrest lifted after he spoke to NOLA Police Department.
Cuba Gooding Jr. is too old to be arrested for fighting in a bar. New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant for “The Red Tails” and “Jerry Maguire” star after an altercation at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street early Tuesday morning. Gooding is accused of shoving a female bartender.
TMZ: The star, 44, became agitated and started swearing when bar patrons who recognized began taking photos, a witness said.
When the female bartender approached the actor and asked him to leave, he allegedly pushed her up against the wall.
Police are now under orders to arrest Cuba on sight. The star is currently in New Orleans to film The Butler, about a White House employee who serves eight Presidents over the course of three decades, with Oprah Winfrey and Lenny Kravitz.
Shame on you Cuba Gooding Jr. if you assaulted a woman. What is this? Mid-life crisis?
