Cuba Gooding, Jr. Headed to Court Following Bar Scuffle

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for Vanity Fair(NEW ORLEANS) -- Cuba Gooding, Jr. no longer has a warrant out for his arrest, but New Orleans police department spokesperson Frank Roberson told ABC News the actor will appear in court Friday morning and is expected to plead no contest after allegedly pushing a female bartender.

Gooding’s publicist said the Red Tails actor, “his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding.”

A warrant for Gooding’s arrest was issued Tuesday. According to New Orleans police, Gooding allegedly pushed a female bartender on Bourbon Street after becoming aggravated by a group of fans. When she informed him that one her co-workers had called 911, he allegedly pushed her again and walked out of the bar.

Cops obtained an arrest warrant for Gooding for municipal battery.

In March, a group of women accused Gooding of groping them at a New Mexico bar. The actor characterized the allegations as “bulls**t” to TMZ.
