Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. got into some trouble with the police in New Orleans earlier this week because of an incident at a local bar. An arrest warrant was issued for the actor after he reportedly shoved a female bartender twice after becoming enraged that patrons at the bar wanted to take his photo. The bartender at the bar has decided to drop the charges of battery against Gooding.

The incident took place at The Old Absinthe House, which is on Bourbon Street, and it took place on Tuesday morning when he was asked to vacate the premises. “It is our understanding the employee involved in the alleged altercation has chosen to drop all charges against Mr. Cuba Gooding Jr.,” a spokeswoman for the bar said in a statement. “While we continue to investigate this matter internally, we are hopeful that this will put an end to the matter.”

A spokesperson for the city, Ryan Berni, said, “The witness indeed has indicated that she is likely to drop the charges. If she does, and after prosecutors review the evidence, a determination will be made as to whether to dismiss the charges.”

Gooding was in New Orleans to film his new movie, ‘The Butler,’ which is about a butler who works in the White House and serves eight presidents.
