Cuba Gooding Jr. has run into a little bit of trouble while shooting Lee Daniels‘ The Butler in New Orleans. And he’s wanted by police.
“The New Orleans Police Department tells TMZ … a misdemeanor battery warrant was issued after cops received a complaint that Cuba got physical at The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street around 2:00 AM.
A witness at the bar tells us … the “Jerry Maguire” actor became upset with some bar patrons who recognized him and had been taking pictures.
We’re told Cuba began cussing at the people … so a female bartender approached the actor and asked him to leave.
But the witness says Cuba didn’t go quietly … and shoved the bartender against a wall.
Someone called 911… but no arrests were made at the scene.
Now, cops are under orders to arrest Cuba on sight.”
The Butler features an all-star cast that includes Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams, Jane Fonda, David Oyelowo, Jesse Williams, John Cusack and more.
