cuba smilingCuba Gooding Jr. is in hot water with the New Orleans police after shoving a female bartender early Tuesday morning. The incident happened sometime between 2 and 3 am yesterday at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The 44 year old actor became upset when other patrons recognized the Academy Award winning actor and began cursing at them as they took photos of Gooding. A female bartender approached Gooding, asking him to calm down or leave and the actor shoved her back. A coworker of the bartender then called 911. The bartender informed Gooding that the police had been called and were on their way. When she again asked him to leave, Gooding pushed the bartender again before finally leaving the bar.

No arrests were made at the scene, but the New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant for Gooding on Misdemeanor Battery charges. Police are now in contact with Gooding’s attorney, Peter Toumbekis of New York. Toumbekis has said that Gooding is now taking the necessary actions to fix these matters, and that more comments on the incident will be made at a later time.

Not only were his hands all over the women’s chests and backsides, one even got upset and jumped on his back because he tried twisting her nipples. This type of behavior does not fit with the normal image of Gooding we see. Most people have a hard time believing these accusations because he seems like such a nice guy. But if enough people begin coming forward with more of this disgusting behavior, it will become more and more believable.

Gooding is currently in New Orleans filming the historical drama, “The Butler” with Oprah Winfrey and Liam Neeson. Gooding is best known for his role of Rod Tidwell in the 1996 movie, “Jerry Maguire” where he played a professional football player. Gooding is currently married to his high school sweetheart and has 3 children.

UPDATE: All charges brought up against Cuba Gooding Jr have been dismissed.
