Cuba Gooding Jr. shoves bartender, faces arrest in New Orleans




The New Orleans PD is looking for Cuba Gooding Jr. after the actor allegedly shoved a bartender who asked him to leave. He's gonna need a lot of help from Oprah Winfrey on this one.

TMZ says Gooding, who is in town to shoot The Butler with Winfrey, was at the Old Absinthe House about 2 a.m. Tuesday when other customers started taking his photo. Understandbly, he was upset when a female bartender told him he was the one who had to go. He allegedly pushed her into a wall before she told him the cops were on the way. Then he shoved her again and left.

Apparently the NOPD issued an arrest warrant for Cuba, and have plans to take him into custody on sight. It shouldn't be too hard to find him; just look for all the lights and movie cameras.
