Remember Cuba Gooding Jr? He’s the actor that you may not remember because he hasn’t exactly made any major films in a while. But you could remember him from doing backflips when he won his Academy Award back in 199xxxx (we really can’t remember).
Gooding has appeared back in the news for reasons that might not exactly help his career all that much. The actor is wanted for allegedly shoving a bartender on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The incident took place early Tuesday morning and the female bartender is out for legal blood.
Gooding was at The Olde Absinthe House when he wasn’t happy about a tourist who was trying to take his picture without permission.
“Gooding soon became very aggravated with them,” the New Orleans police said in a statement.
When the bartender came over to tell Gooding to calm down, he allegedly “pushed her away with an open hand.”
That’s when hell broke loose and the woman called the police. After the bartender told Gooding that the police were coming, he allegedly pushed her again and fled. He is now wanted for municipal battery.
Gooding was in New Orleans to film “The Butler” with Oprah Winfrey.
