Cuba Gooding Jr. Wanted by Police

An arrest warrant has been issued for Cuba Gooding Jr. after he was accused of shoving a female bartender. New Orleans cops received a complaint that the Oscar award winning actor got physical at The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street around 2:00 AM. After the "Jerry Maguire" star entered the French Quarter bar with a group of people, he became angry, spewing curse words at some bar patrons who began accosting him about taking photographs. When the unnamed bartender reportedly tried to calm him down, he retaliated by allegedly pushing her twice with an open hand against a wall. By the time the police arrived, Gooding and his entourage had left the bar.

With the New Orleans police looking for Gooding, it shouldn't be hard to find him, as he is currently in town shooting a film with Oprah Winfrey titled "The Butler."
