August 2 , 2012
An arrest warrant issued for Cuba Gooding Jr. has been lifted after the actor met with police on Wednesday following an incident where he allegedly pushed a female bartender in New Orleans.
Police spokeswoman Remi Braden said Gooding would be summoned to appear in court at a later date.
"There is no warrant. Mr. Gooding, his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding," Gooding's publicist Nancy Kane said in a statement.
The incident took place in the early hours of Tuesday at a bar along the city's Bourbon Street. The bartender told police that Gooding pushed her after becoming agitated with customers asking to take photos.
