New Orleans police issued an arrest warrant for Cuba Gooding Jr., the Oscar Award-winning actor, after he allegedly pushed a bartender at a French Quarter business early Tuesday morning.

Police said Gooding, 44, was at a business in the 200 block of Bourbon Street about 3 a.m. when other customers began to ask to take pictures with him. Police did not specify what business Gooding entered.

The bartender told police that Gooding became “aggravated” with the other customers and pushed her away with an open hand when she approached him and asked him to calm down, said New Orleans Police Department spokeswoman Remi Braden.

Another employee called 9-1-1 and then told Gooding that the police were on the way. Gooding then pushed the bartender a second time and left the bar.

Gooding faces a charge of municipal battery, Braden said.

Gooding is in town for the filming of the movie, “The Butler.”
