Updated at 1:45 p.m. ET: The New Orleans Police Department told CNN: “Mr. Gooding and his attorney met with police officials this morning. At the meeting’s conclusion, Mr. Gooding was given a summons to appear in municipal court. The matter is now being handled in the court system."
The New Orleans Police Department has issued a warrant for actor Cuba Gooding Jr.'s arrest after allegations that he was involved in a fight in the city's French Quarter during the early hours of Tuesday morning.
According to a statement from police, Gooding was at a Bourbon Street venue called the Old Absinthe House when, police said, he became irate and pushed the bartender twice.
The bartender, an unidentified woman, told police that Gooding stopped by around 3 a.m. accompanied by a group of people, and he soon became "very aggravated" with other bar patrons who had recognized him and wanted to take photos with the actor.
The bartender told police that she approached the "Red Tails" star and asked him to calm down, at which point Gooding is accused of "pushing her away with an open hand."
One of the other employees at the bar called 911 as the bartender involved told Gooding that the police were en route and asked him to leave. She has also accused Gooding of pushing her again as he was leaving. The bartender was not injured, police said.
Gooding was presumed to be intoxicated, police said, and a misdemeanor battery warrant has been issued for the Oscar winner's arrest.
CNN reached out to Gooding's representatives for comment but they had not responded Tuesday afternoon.
How pitifull, this happens everynite somewhere during this country. folks can do something if thiers associate degree oppurtunity for gratis cash. Cuba, be carefull, your within the south. Plus, Cuba has no path of violence associate degreed he is an awing actor. P.S. once somebody works in an exceedingly bar, they have to wear thier massive woman panties. the entire issue is ridiculus.
This all started because people got upset that, Heaven forbid, a celebrity wanted to be a regular person for a night and hang out with his friends. If they would have respected his requests to leave him alone then he probably wouldn't have reacted the way he did. Then by the time the bartender jumped in to try to calm him he was already irate because people wouldn't leave him alone. He shouldn't have put his hands on her because a lot of women get beside themselves with indigination when someone gives them even the slightest touch of hand, and they call it assault. He tried to leave and she stood in his way. If she would have moved on her own then the situation would have resolved itself, but then she cried foul when he tried to move her. Everything got blown way too big from what it should have been. Some celebs like the constant attention and some just want to be able to be "normal" for a little while. I know this is way beyond what some can comprehend and it is pie-in-the-sky, wishful thinking but I think we should recognize and be respectful of that; understand that there is a difference between when they are working/happen to appear somewhere and when they are not working/being human and regular. Yeah, too much to ask for. What was I thinking? *rolling my eyes*
HA – I love reading all the comments. Amazing how some of you go over the top and don't realize how ignorant your words are. Thanks for the laughter. Especially in the morning – better than a good cup of coffee.
The only comment worth reading is this one.
bartender should be executed
bla bla and bla.................bla fluke e cuted bla bla
well, why do da brothas always have problems punching, pulling, hitting women? it seems that every day we read about some famous brotha gettin' in trouble for this sort of thang. one might expect that they would appreciate women more as it is almost always the woman who raises the children singlehandedly. why is there such disrespect for women and gays in the black community?
All's I can say to that ........ is AMEN Brotha !!!!
Mark- apparently you have never seen ONE episode of Cops, wherein a redneck (often not black) exhibits the behavior you describe. Race has nothing to do with it.
You're not black. Not sure why you're trying to sound like a white version of one.
Why can't you say black person, instead of brotha? Why do you have to make this about race, and not about fame. Wake up!
Oh please. White men are famous for killing their women and trying to hide it. Give me a break.
Why is it whites always try to write like they're talking black when posting comments about a black issue. Dorks, just as many whites act just as stupid when intoxicated.
excuse me but the article used the word brushed aside I believe... If the bartender was in my way and impeding my exit (unlawful restraint by the way since she's not a police officer) I might brush her aside too. They may be claiming its "battery" but if she wasn't hit or harmed I doubt it will stick.
Anyone who has ever been in a bar at 3am knows that shoving happens.
An ARREST WARRANT was Issued because Someone SAID that a guy PUSHED them the night before? Are you KIDDING?
The whole thing was dropped. But I agree with you. Are we a country of crying wimps all looking for that quick lawsuit everytime we are put out of our comfort zone just a little bit? Looks that way. We have lost so much.
There are masochistic people who would enjoy being assaulted by a celebrity. There want to be subdued and be physically dominated. To normal people who do not wish to be subjected to such deviant desires, they say that such normal people are quick to exploit a lawsuit situation.
Shoulda stayed out of the guy's face. She wasn't injured, this is just another loser trying to hit the lawsuit lottery.
Great, wonderful Cuba...Say it ain't so.....
Here's the issue. These starts are just as accountable as we are. If we did the same thing, we would go to jail too. Dont overlook the fact that none of us were there. I have been a bartender in the past, and it is custom to try to control your bar and the patrons in it. Usually if someone is irate, you dont approach the person on your own, but the approach is made. Im not saying tha it was handled correctly, but the response that MR. Gooding displayed was not right either. Heres the thing....you are a public figure. You know that you are under the microscope, and that you are going to get hassled for your autograph or picture. My buddies in my military unit had a similar response from Mr DeCaprio. We need to stop putting these actors and actresses on a pedistal. They are overpaid Thespians, that need to act like regular human beings. Fly Right Cuba.
This isn't the fault of the bartender, this blame lays-on the blood-sucking lawyers, who would be the real benefactors of a lawsuit, and our legal-system, which allows the bloodsuckers to do their dirty-work. The bartender is just an opportunist.
No trial, just hang him from the nearest dead tree. Strange fruit indeed!
Idiot!!! why don't we hang you from the nearest tree. If you are not a sucker and not afraid. Leave your address.
This whole ordeal is crap first of all anyone who knows anything about bars it is not up to a Bartender to approach people like that it is either up too the Manager of the bar or bodygaurds if there is any. She was not physically abused and for those who say she was your full of it too he pushed her away. With Cuba's popularity it would not surprise if he was not hounded as soon as he sat at the bar to begin with. Really people come on this story really seems someone is out to get some money.
What a silly statement to make! Of course a bar tender might approach an irate customer and tell them to calm down. There is no "one way" these things are handled. We don't know the whole story at this point, but it certainly seems to me that the version here is likely closer to the truth, than "someone is just making up some crap about a celebrity
Just because its ok in your mind for a daughter or wife to be pushed around that way doesn't mean we all think so. Your posting speaks volumes about your total lack of character.
Uhm, Ant Champ, youdo know that, legally, shoving someone is assault, right? You CAN be charged for it.
guys give cuba a break.
just like sweet little preyer
Okay, I am going to say this, and I'm going to say it once: NO man has the right to put his hands on a woman, EVER... I don't care what his reasons were, or what his state of sobriety was... He had NO right to put his hands on her... Period...
If that is true, then it is just as true that no woman has the right to put hands on a man, any man. You dont approach an person who you know is a celebrity and try to belittle or dominate him. If he was making a scene because of your customers bothering him, it is better for your establishment to tell the customers to back off and let him alone. Getting into someones face is not right, I dont care if you are the queen of england. If he had to push her away, then she was too close, period.
Just make sure the comment about men should never lay a hand on a woman, goes both ways right...We are all equal..Women should never lay there hands on a man..
Sooo... home girl takes a bat to your face and you shove her off? no? Better yet- she is beating your child and then you shove her off? still nothing? Fine fine- she is raping you anally with a strap on and you shove her off? nope? NEVER? damn- I guess you are a better person than I am. Idiot.
I don't care if she's got a knife, a gun, has taken a hostage, or is assaulting children: woman are so super delicate and special that unwanted physical contact is automatically TERRIBLE at all times.
You are truly one of the good people left on this planet full of sheep. Thank you.
BIG MOUTH ON A COMPUTER ... THATS IT.
we got it?
cut your cnn studly stuff you have not even opened you mouth to the person.
My son is a bartender and the stuff that people do after they have had a few drinks is just incredible so I totally support this woman. Just because you had a few beers does not give you the right to be abusive to other people, especially people trying to make a living. Gooding needs to go overboard to clean this up and he will come out okay.
nobody received a punch..one too many taters were in my face..which will not happen again because they will go to tater heaven....
Who ever said a bartender had brains? If they did they wouldnt be a bar tender! Thats the next thing to being homeless.
if you drink on Bourbon your an idiot anyway. may be cause i lived there but tourists act like they're on Mars in the Quarter. it's all a big hustle, like a carnival with real estate. lots of money for the cops though cause they know the tourists have cash' if I was Cuba i'd have my own quarter bar. course you got to put up with Cage too. they open and close every week
If he can't screw that white hoe he can always punch her
BE CAREFUL TOUGHY– THAT DAY I WASN'T READY...THIS TIME I'M PREPARED...IF THIS IS YOU OR COURSE.
IT BETTER NOT BE YOU–
THERE WAS NO PUNCH..TATER AND THE TATETTES GOT INTO MY FACE..NEXT TIME EVERYBODY GOES TO TATER HEAVEN.
now yer talkin'.
Nah – she'd probably just pop a cap in his ugly-ass black mug.
Just another worthless "groid. No loss.
maybe he should stop hating white people because they have given him pretty much everything he has.
Looks like Cuba isn't as Gooding as we were lead to believe.
Good evening folks. Everyone is invited to visit – thestarofkaduri.com
Why is this article still in here? Case settled this morning. No content control I guess.
This story is still here so all the Chick-fil-a fans will have something else interesting to read that doesn't tax their minds too much. First it was gay marriage and now a black man has had the audacity to push a woman bar tender not once but twice. What kind of Xtian would do that? What is the world coming to?
Can't wait to see the mug shot and laugh, laugh, laugh.
"show me the handcuffs!" hahahaha
we also have money protection..even for boyfriends and girlfriends...not an issue
if she's cashing in...that's your fault that's why we have prenups
The problem I have is the govt considering a push or shove as a physical fight. What's next?
You don't understand how placing your hand on another person is physical??? And the "Government" you are referring to is the local Police Department. Better go check your bath tub. I think your batch of meth is ready.
"He looked at me the wrong way! I've been violated! Lock him up!"
I just read that beginning today, Louisiana police is being directed and controlled by the US government because of all the corruption there, especially in N.O. Could this be a test? I have seen bar fights and there is far more than pushing with an open hand. I think the bartender is trying to cash in. Dumb b*%&ch
So that's what CNN calls a bar fight....a lil push...smh
Just another overpaid B movie actor
No its what the allegation was as informed to them by the local police. You are putting it on CNN as that is not what the article says. If you have a predisposed negative opinion of CNN why are you here?
we gotta make money..get outta here
you have not point we hear from again and we hit another state.
66 years old ... like riding a bike–
wanna try another state? we have meetings get the stepping
keep moving..you sound hysterical.
I'm willing to bet the situation was a lot less physical then it is being told. I bet the push was more of a "get out of my way" type of maneuver. Hands on, and slowly move the person out of the way. I don't think it was a full on push. Grow a pair lady, I hate people who try and make money the easy by suing instead of working for it. She's down in the dumps, and wants free cash.
The point is that you should never put your hands on anyone.
Actually to have a Bourbon Street bar call 911 on you usually requires something pretty dramatic. I see people get thrown out by the bouncers just about every night. I see people get harassed by the police out on the streets in the quarter just about every night. But in my entire life I've yet to see a bartender on Bourbon actually call the cops. Dont get me wrong, I'm certain they would if they felt it necessary. Its just that the bar is set WAY high as far as whats considered over the line behavior in New Orleans.
i hope its not u boo. xo
IT MIGHT BE ABLE TO HOKE AFTER ALL. BOCA BABES ARE HERE ANYTIME FOR A "FAVOR".
YOU LOOKING FOR ME?
If I was Sarah Palin, I'd drive around the neighborhood until I found someone running a wood chipper. Then I would jump in. And then the world would be a better place. Simple.
Stay on target!
I'm going to side with Gooding on this one.
you treat an idiot like she's an idiot .. its not rocket science..your treat a fry like a fry.
You treat a woman like a woman...not all women are the same
Snowdogs wasn't that bad of a movie...
if the bar patrons were annoying Cuba, why did the bartender confront Cuba instead of the obnoxious barflys? Hopefully they'll drop these charges. Drunken stupidity is second only to gang violence as pastimes in NO.
That is my question as well. Why did Cuba Gooding Jr. become the villain. The people bothering him could be considered paparazzi like.
Umm.. Jeb.. I'm sure you're smart enough to remember that he's a celebrity. What did he expect walking into a crowded bar? He has fans, and those fans probably never ever saw him in real life till that night. I'm sure they're not fans anymore though. The report states that the bar patrons were just wanting some photos with him, is seems to me like he was grossly intoxicated. The fact that he was pushing a female bartender alone shows me that he was just acting like an a $ $.
She won't get a dime, he won't see any parts of a jail and this will be old news in about 3 days. I guarantee you there's more to this story and just because someone is famous doesn't give you the right to invade their space or for them to take insults because they won't take pictures with you. I worked for a record label for 6 years and you wouldn't believe the crap that childish Americans (YES... I'm American) will try and sue stars for. Suing a band because you lacerated your finger while trying to unwrap their new CD? Really? Next idiotic story please...
I also worked in the TV/music industry, and I've seen/watched entertainers make a$$es of themselves repeatedly. So it can and does go both ways.
I couldnt agree with you more. Ive been in the business for quite some time now and you'd be surprised the non sense people would do if they figured they could get a dollar out of ya pocket.
if i had to listen to some of the cd's coming outthese days i'd slash my wrists
Price for popularity.
Bartender is sure hoping for a fat check...
As my mamma taught me ... "Nothing good ever happens when you're out at 3am".
Guess his momma didn't tell him that. Neither did Tony Parker's... :\
that depends, ive had much fun with the ladies at 3 am
Run forest run!!!
He's probably hanging out with Wesley Snipes
Do you think Wesley Snipes also gay?...but for sure Wesley is bound to go to Jail for defrauding the IRS.
All those actors think that they are above the law and nothing can hurt them!
It is a holywood thing to come out of the closet and announce to the world that he/she is gay. Perhaps, Cuba was kind of chicken and cold feet to tell the world about it. So, he went to bar and so drunk that he could not tell the difference that he went to wrong bar (bar for straight people)?...who knew. What was he up to at 3 AM with no bodyguard and only with a male partner?....
I don't think you could be more of an idiot if you sat down for a day and tried to write it out. All this for a push? Please!
What the heck are u talking about?
Did you even read the article?
Too bad an IQ test isn't a requirement before posting.
SHOW ME THE LAWSUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Show me the bail money
This is not news and the New Orleans Police Department should not waste their time issuing a warrant for his arrest.
This is a joke and if he was not famous nobody would be issuing a warrant over such a petty issue.
correction, if he as nobody NOLA PD would have beat darkyinto a coma while yelling stop resisting
?? Really? You get pushed twice with no injuries and you call 911? She should be arrested for making a prank 911 call. Why are liberals always looking for the easy way to steal money. Pathetic humans are liberals.
How you can make this a political issue amazes me. How do we know if the bartender was a liberal or a conservative?
Get politics out of your mind for once. It is 100% unrelated to this issue.
You're an idiot. If the man was being uncooperative, they have every right to call the police. And what the hell does this have to do with being a liberal or not? The law is what the law is, and if you haven't noticed, Louisiana is conservative as hell, so I'm pretty sure if this was a "liberal" law, it would be long gone by now. And as if liberals are the only ones who call 911 over petty stuff. Give me a break.
Matt, it's wing nuts like you that need a boogey man called "liberals" to appease some angst within. You are lost without having some dark force to rile against. Unforunately, it is precisely this that defines conservative thinking nowadays. It's an imaginary battle between good and dark forces born out of ignorance.
Matt.....very well said. I agree that the conservative/facist/christian mindset NEEDS to have a "them"...a boogeyman to blame all their problems on. These people can be the laziest/dumbest carbon-blobs on earth, but they need to have a scapegoat to blame for their miserable-excuses-for-lives.
And the republicans exploit that cowardly trait. They sell a plaform of FEAR HATE and RACISM. And the conservatives suck it up while ignoring the fact that the repbublikan-party only exists to serve the rich-and-powerful.
I wish he'd give me a good shove... if you know what I mean...
the "Red Tails" star .. HAHAHAHAHAHAh
Agreed. If you're going to reference one of his films, make it a decent one.
Would you still say the same if it were Ben Affleck, the "star" of Pearl Harbor...
Get your check book ready Cuba.
why are you putting yourself through this
I clicked on the article for the simple reason of scrolling the comment section and taking a drink everytime I saw an iteration of the phrase "Show Me the Money".....damn i ammm geettiingg verrry druuunkk
Pushing someone is assault and battery. Period.
Can't an actor just get angry? So what... he "pushed" the loser bar girl. So WHAT? That's what I say. Let's toast!
Pushing someone is self defense when everyone's in your famous face. Sue the obnoxious barmaid. That will shut her up.
He's not a great actor (IMO).. he got a great role. Now he's going to show her the money.
Did he go to Gay Bar and looking for some action?
Why? Do you feel like you missed an opportunity?
there's a bar in the Quarter that ain't gay? (Matassas was the only real non-gay bar i ever saw there ) the only people in the girlie shows are tourists and those girls are 90% bi hoes just workin hard for the money
401, retirement stocks any indirects there?
He's rich and he pushed me with an open hand! Call 911! This is my shot to get out of debt!!!!!!!!!!!!!
who is this..do not respond.
accounts 401, stocks?
Johny Utah.. i'm there all the time? i work right there! ha
INDIRECT COMMENTS RELATING TO IPS..DOES THIS PERSON HAVE A JOB? MAKING SURE NOT ONE RIGHT?
What a punk. He gets mad and pushs a womwen, because she asked to to calm down. People on here would be singing a different tune if they were the ones being pushed around for asking for a picture.
I'm confused.... according to most comments the bartender is in the wrong here? Just because she works in a bar she shouldn't get her legal protections? How about Cuba comes to some of you commenters offices and gives you a good shove? Or how about not Cuba but ANY random person? This should be acceptable? Just because someone is trying to earn a living working in a bar does not mean they should have to deal with someone, ANYONE handling them in some type of aggressive manner. I'd say with the majority mindset her no one is very far from [any skin tone] trash.
He got 99 problems but a bi*ch aint one!!!
Why cant they just leave Wayne Brady alone.....
This is ridiculous. I seriously doubt if he did any physical harm to that bartender. All of this stuff comes with the territory of being in the public eye. This is New Orleans at 3:am people. I'm sure a lot worse things have happened. Leave that man alone and stop trying to tarnish his name!!!
Just keep in mind, the CIVILIANS in Louisiana are mostly polite, gentle, and will give you the shirt off of your back. In order to protect those peace loving and party minded people, the Louisiana law is very clear that you must ACT like a person of character, ie: a lady or a gentleman. Most Louisiana natives can handle the booze. If you come to Louisiana and cause trouble, don't think you are gonna get away free and clear.
Poor guy can't go out and have a drink without being assaulted by people...then he gets a warrant for pushing. What a stupid system we live with.
Relax, people, it's New Orleans! All he will have to do is pay a modest bribe to the police department and all will be well again.
The news about alcohol is just getting worse every time I look. He is great in my book but put some booze in him or anyone else and they turn into Monsters. Men and Women. We really need to look at this and ask ourselves do I want to be drunk and possibly kill someone? Or if I really want to get F'd up and not run off in my car and kill someone I can always turn to the NON killer Cannabis which so far in it's history has caused no death or has killed anyone. Facts people that is what it is all about. THE FACTS
Too bad people focus on the harm tobacco does instead of alcohol . It would take YEARS for me to kill someone with my smoking but it only takes seconds for some alcoholic POS to kill a family in one car wreck .....go figure .
I am now dumber for having read your comment. Thanks for that.
dont dis my beer. just cause youd rather smoke pot doesnt mean you get to dictate how i party.
Seriously!? they issued a warrant?? money grubbin beeyotch! i hope charges are dropped... i was pushed into a truck a couple times while pregnant by my father... Michigan 5.0 wouldnt pick him up because i didnt have marks, though it triggered early labor... but law enforcment will issue a warrantfor a man with an ocsar for pushing a bartender? tell me his bankroll isnt a motivating factor!!! poor man almost kills a fetus while sober and its fine but cuba cant get drunk?
You got pregnant by your father?
Pushed into a truck by your father while pregnant? How white trash are you??
That's what I thought. "They issued a warrant for that?"
Hey Robyn... that's the way it works: you cause trouble and break the law, a warrant is issued NOT BY THE POLICE, you knave, but, by a magistrate, usually a justice of the peace. Perhaps you should read up on your criminal procedure! And yes, in Louisiana, it is illegal to TOUCH another person without their consent. If he pushed her, well, that is even more aggregious. Think about it, most old world 'Cajuns carried "ticklers" and someone shoving a lady in a public place would get a "taste" of the tickler.... That had to be stopped, so, the "LAW" was created. It is part of "civilized" society... perhaps unlike what you find in your "Michigan" state.
Booze gets the best of us...it's poison, rehab time!
I have returned to monitor all comments. I am the almighty Jebus Christ!
I love how cnn reported this story promptly ..yet hasn't mentioned a word of the recent affair of the white trampire. Typical.
an arrest warrant for assault out on a popular actor is a bit different than an over-reported hollywood affair between some stupid kids
Neither issue deserves any attention. The only thing that matters at all is the waste of taxpayer money for pushing. The rest is trivial trash. I do not care who they are. They put pants on 1 leg at a time like the rest of us.
The bartender should be arrested for wasting taxpayer money for such stupidity. Someone pushed her twice without harming her so she wants the taxpayers to spend tens of thousands of dollars to arrest, bring to trial, and convict the person. Kids push each other around all the time.
I can see it now.
Teacher ..... Johnny pushed me. Have him arrested.
It was never stated that the bartender pressed charges or that she intends on suing him. The city filed charges against him for the fact that he did assault (no matter how slight the incident seems) another person.
New Orleans doesn't play with celebrity blahblahblah. We don't care who you are, just mind your manners (see: Russel Brand incident from earlier this year & Nicolas Cage incident from last year). The bartender didn't want a pic with him, patrons did.. she was just telling him to chill out because it is her job to squash problems before they become fist fights. & the most ridiculous part of it all is that he was in a BOURBON STREET bar (which is where the tourists go) .. if the OSCAR AWARD WINNING ACTOR wanted anonymity then he should of stayed out of the busiest, most packed part of the city. Sheesh.
Seems like the only thing on the bartenders mind is "SHOW ME THE MONEY"!!!!
Where's Zimmerman when you need him??
He should be arrested for all the terrible movies he'd been in lately.
Coz The Boys In The Hood Are Always Hard
You Come Talkin That Trash, We'll Pull Ya Card
Knowin' Nutin In Life But To Be Legit'
Dont Quote Me Boy Coz I Aint Said shiznit
You have got to be kidding me. They want to bring criminal charges on someone because they pushed someone twice while doing no damage or hurting anyone. This is the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard of. No wonder our jails are so full. We consider pushing to be a hardened crime like murder and want anyone who pushes another to be labeled as a felon and destroy the rest of their life.
What a bunch of pansies and crybabies people have become.
Just looking for a payday. Last time I checked, arms length is my personal space and I like to keep it clear.
Nope just looking to cash in for free money....once charges are brought even if dropped opens up the cash drawer. If I were the owner I'd fire that bartender. First bartender shouldn't be mixing it up with patrons that's what the bouncer is paid for!!!
What a stupid reason to issue a warrant, let alone turn this into news. Cuba Gooding Jr should have taken a page out of Tom Cable's book and punched her in the face for the reaction that this has caused.
cuba gooding? who is this guy
ahhh.. missed me...i was at class in the afternoon–all you had to do was ask.
calm down now. a great day is ahead!
exactly....world at your feet dude...cut back on the VT's and have some fun with the fans!
This idiot acts like that even when he's not intoxicated. Must be a mental deficiency.
The real eliteists that wish to be treated differently? Hollywood, and they get taxed less as a corperation too. If they have money to throw away on an Obama reelection then they have money to get taxed away.........lots of it. Tax the hell out of Hollywood.
Sure, then people that don't work can get more handouts. The US generates plenty of revenue without anyone having to pay anymore. How about we just balance our budget and stop the outrageous spending habits of the government???
vote republican do ya? you must make over 260,000 not the measley 250,000 we have heard about. and of course you do not plan to reach retirement age . no social security for you
They must've told him how good he was in Shadowboxer.....hahahahaha
SHOW ME THE MONEY! That's what the bartender is saying now. Clearly, she is emotionally unable to perform her functions as a bartender after this horrific incident. She needs a lifetime of bartender wages. No tips, though. 20 grand ought to cover it
oh now faith..we fellas have been down this road a couple of times in our lives also... he/it will be ok
Sad how people take a situation and run with it i'm sure other patrons were there to be a witness to what happened but a warrant really!
how come you didn't ask me a vito we would have showed up? LOL
nobody invited me?
Booze is making him age quickly. Stupid drunk.
Just because he is in the public eye doesn't mean he is public property. He also needs to drink with friends or join a private club so not to be bothered.
3:00 in the morning bartender, drunk as hell and had a fight with a lookalike and want to get paid. what a ripoff
i love a delicious peach before and after breakfast.
shut up tooch–
was the woman wearing high pumps? just curious.
leave the guy alone is not a human name...
i dont' like cuba gooding
I'm willing to bet that the bartender was getting his in face and acting like she was doing something useful and trying to 'handle' him and he got angry. He should have practiced more self control but being pushed away is no reason to call the cops. If he pushed her a second time, she probably deserved it. It isn't like he punched her in face or slapped her silly. Media is just blowing this out of proportion.
Another Hollywood knucklehead thinking he's above the law and decency.
Arrest him and mug shot him so we can laugh at the has-been.
Yeah he's washed up huh, oscar and cash must be a horrible career........
If this had been anyone else no charges. Would have been filed. I'm a bartender and dealt with worse. Yawn. Next?
The bartender was not injured
One doesn't have to be hurt to suffer battery you goof. Go back to school.
you sound like a real racist, black militant.....and a punk......
SHOW ME THE WARRANT!
Bad Radio. Baaaaad Radio.
Why? Are you his bed buddy?
This article didn't make any sense until it was revealed that the bartender was a woman. The only time Cuba can kick azz is in a movie. Or against a woman as revealed here.
Cuba,you Uncle Tom now you see how much they hate you?
I hate him too Black Milf. Seems inner chimp came out.
you sound like a real racist, B.M.
I'm not a racist,i'm a realist.
Famous and in movies = people will recognize you and want an autograph and or a picture ! If you want a private life and not to be bothered by people when you're out in public, don't become a famous entertainer. It doesn't take a nuclear physicist to figure that one out.
BUNCH OF LOSERS ARE STARTING A FIGHT WITH THE MAN, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY CAN CAN SUE HIM AND JUST LIE.
LET THE MAN HAVE HIS DRINK AND LEAVE HIM THE F888K ALONE.
Thanks for the eyewitness report.
i heard he took a poopy on white chick once and ate it off of her. or was that Chuck Berry. oh well, they're all the same. knee grows that is.
Are Russians considered white? Pretty dangerous country. Georgia and Uzbekistan are pretty bad too. Many middle eastern countries and asian countries are extremely dangerous. Central America has a very high crime rate. There aren't a lot of black people in those countries, they are brown, yellow, white, red, mixed. The racism crap is old, talk about something else because it's not even funny anymore.
Blacks are the worst though
Just let the man have his drink and quit messing with him
Haha thats the only bar on Bourbon street I went too cool!
I call publicity stunt. Cuba needed an image makeover – Looking pretty soft after doing the movie Boat Trip. He and Ice Cube are close to signing a deal for Boyz in the Hood 2. I hear Chris Brown will be signing on to do the sound track and has a cameo.
aLLEGEDly struck out at the female bartender.
What we have here is a failure to communicate. The warrant is for misdemeanor battery. Not being black, not being drunk, not being a celebrity, not being in New Orleans, not being in a southern state in general, not for denying a bartender his celebrity favors (it was another bar customer hassling him and he struck out at the female bartender when she asked him to cool down). MAYBE the police know something the writer of the article omitted and have reason to put out the warrant, maybe they don't. Either way, they'll duke it out with his high price lawyers and call it a day. Save yourselves so much hand-wringing and just read the freaking article before you start flinging poo.
Just stay out of bars and his crap won't happen
Typical rich idiot that comes to New Orleans, gets drunk, and doped up and stars beating women. Go home and beat yo mama!!!!
nice Dallas Cowboy jab there..
F the saints and that baby Jonathan vilma!
Agreed on that,Joe.They are sinners,not Saints.They didn't get smacked hard enough as far as I'm concerned by the league.In last years playoffs,the 49ers did a good job of it,though.Keep crying Johnny boy,here's another towel.Only problem is nobody is listening.
I heard he once took a pooh in his girlfriend's shower and pushed it down the drain with his big toe. Oh, never mind...that was me.
Hey,aren't you a member of the Blackfoot Indian tribe?
All I have to say is most of you idiots need to learn how to spell???
Yet you start a question with "All I have to say is" LMFAO
I would love to see an anti-paparazzi law. You must have the celebrities consent to photograph them. End of story!
This is why I love Miami. I've seen celebrities left and right and they are never bothered here. Why you ask, because nobody cares. This is how people should treat celebrities. I've seen Shaq, Wade, Madonna, Pdiddy, Jlo all within a few feet of me..did I think for a second of bothering them..NO..why..because I don't care and I don't want people bothering me. Live and LET LIVE. I've been in clubs a few feet from major A list and the only time I bothered one was for borrowing his candle from a table to light a cigar. Rules to follow...never ask for a picture, never ask for anything, smile and say hello, wave or just be nice and then ignore. Don't take out your iphone, don't stare, just relax they are just like you except richer and more famous.
Yes Tammy...respect them like they are royalty. Or just ignore them...
Americans seem to think that celebrities are their property. I have seen first hand many times how they act around them. I feel nothing but sympathy for the celebrity and disgust for the leaches who act like complete morons around them.
Wow. Generalize much? Nice job painting this episode as how 'Americans' act. I'm sure where ever you are from, no one has ever asked to take a picture with someone. To do so is to act like a moron in your world? How sad you must be.
Actors crave fame and go through withdrawal when their careers hit the skids. They want adulation and privacy...the two don't mix.
cops must be a bunch of empty-headed imbeciles. arrest someone for pushing someone? and i wonder what the evidence is. just because she said it? ha, i recall obama visited this city a few months ago. well, he pushed me. being pushed by the leader of the free world was so traumatizing that i can no longer function normally, i will be needing a million bucks from the dnc, the black panthers, muslim brotherhood, or whoever it is that funds obama.
That is classified as an assault, technically. Celebrity, so money is involved. Woman, so bias is involved. Do the math.
Then you can turn around and give that money to a shrink who can help you get your head screwed on right.
gotta laugh. The Absinthe? been tools for 50 years I know of personally.. proud of it they are.
Uhm being in the move, "Red Tails," ain't making him a star. That movie was pretty bad, just saying.
The human head weighs 8 pounds!
I hope they find Gooding before he kills again. Sheesh. Hollywood celebs!
SHOW ME THE MONEY-
Congratulations bartender who may or may not have a name, you invented a way to get yourself that 15 minutes you always wanted.
So in other words, what you're saying is it's ok for Gooding to act like a drunk jerk and push people around (something you or I would be arrested for) but it's not ok for this woman to report it because she's looking for fame? People like you, Caiha, are what's wrong with the world today. Accepting behavior like this is NEVER ok. Letting celebs slide is the reason why their egos are as big as they are.
I work at a popular GROCERY store in HELLesto CA n hate going out n public becuz U run into customers who feel the need to approach n talk to me! Now I avoid leaving the house on my days off! Give him some respect n leave him alone when he's out. Public doesn't own him!
Police said he was presumed to be intoxicated? Look . . . he probably was and we here can say it . . . but hey NOPD . . . can you at least pretend like you know the law and that you're supposed to presume people are innocent until proven guilty instead of just telling the whole world you presume he was publicly intoxicated? That's far more ridiculous than Cuba's night getting ruined by a mob.
If there were witnesses and/or video evidence,what more proof would they need?
Not a crime to be intoxicated in public in New Orleans. Not a crime to walk down the street drinking a beer unless its in a glass bottle. Not sure why they mentioned he was intoxicated other than simply to mention it. No one will be arrested in Louisiana, particularly New Orleans, more particularly the Quarter, even more particularly on Bourbon, ever so more particular INSIDE A BAR on Bourbon for being publicly intoxicated. Its not an issue at all.
I don't follow celebretards. Who is Cuba Gooding Jr.? Is he popular with the young people?
You obviously don't keep up with 'Google' either. It's popular with the young people. Go back to bed, Gramps.
Funny, Gramps here has worked with computers since 1980, managed to find the inter-web let alone CNN and make a post. Maybe if we stopped worshipping entertainers who are in the 1% the problems of the world which are reaching critical mass might be heard and real life issues affecting real life people could be solved. Now where's that walker? It's past my bedtime :p
I'm sure the bartender is looking for a free ride, New Orleans is a toilet and should be flushed out to sea.
Yes, but that's a racial issue and wouldn't be P.C. to talk about.
I think God tried to do that a few years back..... they rebuilt
New Orleans is still quite a mess in many places. Just not the ones to attract tourists.
The violence for some reason is really taking over. In the wake of The Colorado Massacre of course. How many more actors will act out with violence?
GO CUBA!!! He'll have a good legal team. Also she must have wanted to know how it is to feel someone famous and black. Smile
Hello folks. Everyone is cordially invited to visit ... thestarofkaduri.com
Well, at least he didn't punch her in the taco like Matthew Fox did to that bus driver.
Presumed intoxicated. A new one for WWB. Walking While Black.
Most people would guess someone bar-hopping at 3AM is intoxicated, not WWB. If the reported version of events is accurate, you might call it "walking while behaving like an asz hole"
Does it get boring throwing out blind accusations of racism or is it embedded into your DNA? I am a bit suprised however that New Orleans PD has nothing better to do than rush a one day warrant request through on such a minor case. Money, Money, Money...I smell lawsuit!
This is in reply to redpotz. I don't feel like Mr. Gooding was being an asz hole as you put it. The man was out for the night to have a good time but people would not leave him alone! He has every right to his peace & quiet and privacy! Celebrities do not owe regular people anything! They do their job, which is acting, singing, etc. And when they are out in public, the public should have enough decency to let them be. Celebrities should not have to give up their dreams or their careers just because everyday people live such boring lives that they need 2 minutes worth of excitement by pestering someone for an autograph or a photo. I've never read a law that indicates that famous people HAVE to give in to the publics every demand! Maybe Mr. Gooding was having a bad day and that whole situation just set everything off! We don't know, we were not in his head! That bartender is after her measley little fame and fortune! Good luck to her! Lol.
It he was native I imagine he would've prob been thrown in jail.
Two pushes = a fight?
SHOW ME THE HANDCUFFS!!!
Cuba was mad because no fried chicken is right... Maybe some chitlens would have helped calm him down...
Your racist and ignorant comment might be considered a joke if it were funny.
awful, ignorant comment.
Quite an ignorant comment but chittlens are quite tasty when prepared properly :)
Check the statistics stupid, white people consume a vast majority of the chicken and watermelon in this country. It would be obvious to you if your racist tendencies would not cloud your intelligence.
I tended bar for over twenty years in New Orleans and can tell you that when this bartender approached a drunk from the customer side of the bar, she was looking for trouble. Perhaps she's seeing a great big settlement in her future.
More like an epic fail in her future....
Old Absinthe House is a very small bar. The bartenders are tucked behind a nice big bar and the customers are of course on the other side. Aside from the popcorn guy over in the corner, there shouldn't be ANY interaction with the bartenders and the customers that doesn't take place over the bar. This is blown out of proportion and is absolutely an attempt to get a big settlement!
@ Connieo I agree I have been a bartender for years. There are many reasons not to get out from behind the bar /vice versa.She is looking for a pay-off She saw Cuba and then she saw $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
More like Cuba Badding Jr, am I right folks?
I hate his sry azz
If I had a kid he would look like cuba Gooding jr. Cuba is black so why isn't the Obama gustapo on this bar shutting them down? Geez
Oh, gosh....people really know how to wear a one-liner in the ground. Get some new material.
Because he is not racist like you.
Anyone that has ever had an incident report written on them knows that if the best they could do is "he pushed her with an OPEN HAND" then in reality he didn`t do anything. He probably didn`t wNt to be bothered and, at some point, even for a celebrity, that`s a reasonable expectation.
And cut all the race_related talk. He didn`t have to pursue this chick; trust me, it`s more likely she pursued him.
may be he is influence of liquior.
maybe you do too?
If they're going to arrest him for battery... why not the others for harassment? this incident would have never happened if those folks wouldnt have started it
the man cant even live life without being bothered.
Drunk at a bar in New Orleans? What will they think of next?
Someone wants some money....
well said moneypenny
Must be a republican no respect for the common folk
It's democrats who have no respect. Steal, cheat, beg free money, smell bad, have few teeth, lots of tattoos, little brains, lots of piercings.
Another pathetic troll. Educate yourself before you post minimum wager.
Ridiculous..why does every situation turn into a republicans vs democrat debate....clearly dude was being harassed....They are human just like the rest of us...granted they are rich and famous but the the manager should have stepped. Drunk and being surrounded by people...sooner or later someone is gettin pushed.... Besides you right wing nut jobs have other issues to worry about... Like finding big foot....searching for Obama's African roots....oh and trying to destroy America....yea that sounds about right wing
I guess that means the bartender is a liberal. Out to get something for nothing from people that actually go out and earn a living.
Classic case of bar workers gold digging
I saw Obama, hes very nice like an old man. When he went to take it with the light for some people and reason. I hope you and them forgot to not have a liscence for the toad of amsterdam and living mexican coca colas! Thanks for listening
Can you say Money Grab!!!
I was in a bar once when members of the who walked in: John entwhistle and Roger Daltrey. The place was a hole in the wall. When recognized they were cool and said hi but indicated they wanted to be left alone. We all respected that and left them alone. The key word here is RESPECT. What happened to it?
I'm not saying its right that he pushed the bartender at all but people need to know when to leave people alone. We don't own celebrities. If we see them in public we need to give them their space if they are willing to engage beyond a "hi" then it's up to them.
Respect, courtesy, manners, and common sense went the way of the rotary phone I'm afraid.
Fight?!?! he pushed her. about the only thing a Dude can do that is NOT violent to a female to get her to back off.
rather have him hit her like yall used too?
is this one person portraying 160 bloggers? gotta love it!
What do you say to a female bartender with two black eyes? Nothing......she's been told twice already...
Goooooooo Cuba! The other argues initiated confrontation no one was injured this is a lot of BS ABOUT NOTHING. I know and have bumped into a few famous people and always give em space and don't point em out. When people are out they just want to be normal people. Sometimes when we go out its to relax and we don't want to be bothered. Simple as that leave him the ef alone. Go fight real crime New Orleans PD.
Contrary to what is posted here, the public does OWN people, in the entertainment industry, and whose salary they pay. The public provides them with the lifestyle and the money, and then they want privacy from the very public, who financially support them.
Being hounded, when out in public, has been status quo for famous entertainers, since the time of silent films. If one wants the fame and the lifestyle, then one must be ready to accept the huge price that comes with it; namely, loss of privacy. Why, I'll bet that Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, or Dr. Robert Jarvik don't have the throngs of public followers that entertainers have. I would also venture a guess that if Aung San Suu Kyi were to appear in public, she would be humbled at someone asking for her autograph. Blackburn, Jarvik and Aung San Suu Kyi have given more to the world than any second-rate entertainer (I consider ALL of them second-rate) has ever given or would ever be able to give to the world. So, let's keep it in prospective.
Also, the issue is the alleged pushing of the bartender. In a crowded bar, I'm confident that there are enough witnesses to either dispute the bartender's version or to fry Gooding's a _ _. One of the biggest lessons that I continually teach my students is "keep your hands to yourself". If Gooding did what he is accused of doing, perhaps, Gooding was absent the day they taught that in his schools.
Battery is the act of "beating" your victim. The judicial system (fat judges and lawyers) way of milking the public for that million dollar retirement. As for the bartender, she is just mad she did not get her photo with the stars.
I see some phantom injury and mental anguish in the bartender's future.
some one's tryin' to get paid.
I'm a old white guy, I served in vietnam,A lot of my buddy's were black guys. They were good men, and brave I love those guys and they love me, to this day. What people that hate don't understand is that your hurting yourself more then those you hate. I like fried chicken and watermellon myself, it's good stuff.
Right on, brother...
Anybody else see this coming with the bartender....Show me the money!
It give me hope that least one American see the gathering fascist gynocracy. And of course he's being immediately hunted by law enforcement. Just like Chris Brown. Coincidence that they both black????
oh please... Chris brown beat that rhianna chick pretty badly or didn't you see the photos? I suppose you think it was all part of a "get the black man" lynch mob. What's the old saying about it's better to be quiet & be thought a fool than to open your mouth & prove them right...
Another drunk, unemployed African gets violent. This is news?
That's right Mammy. If he was white he would be in a theatre killing people.
What an ignorant ass statement ...Mammy!
And Charlie Sheen is such a role model to all the white innocent pukes like yourself.
Mammy you and juanito would make a beautiful couple. I know you are both male. Picture that - enjoy.
err... I think he's from New York
Go back to the hole you came from. You racist bi tch
Maybe he should claim self defense. That way he is guaranteed not to get charged.
Play on, playa. Sometimes you gotta keep a trick in line so they know who daddy is.
You're a pig.
I'll second that. Obviously you think it's ok to push any woman. What a slime ball. I don't agree that Cuba should be charged with battery. However he should get a fine or something. I don't think the bartender will win any large settlement. I think the police over-reacted. Now join the 21st century and get a life that doesn't include pushing women (or men) around!
Real crime is being commited in New Orleans, and they have nothing to do but issue a warrant for something like this. This proves that the police make money harrasing Non-criminals. He'll pay a fine, and they get ot continue receiving their costly pensions.
Remember the good old days, when you actually had to HIT someone to be charged with assault and battery? We've become such a society of whimps. It's like telling the teacher that you were pushed and waiting for the "assailant" to be sent to the principal's office. Let's stop the presses and point out an APB! There's a "pusher" on the loose!....
No matter what the players race my brother Cuba has a problem a very similar incident occurred here in New Mexico last year I recall common denominators are Cuba in a bar having a confrontation with a women...and for the record I have been black all my life
Really? For your entire life? Wow
Really??? An arrest warrant for pushing? He pushed her twice? There has to be more details than this?? So you
push someone while sober is that a misdemeanor battery too or is it just when someone is drunk? Someone earlier called
this bullying........ seriously people, all people need to chill out. Oh one more question. Did she get hurt, was she touch inappropriately? I bet she got touch inappropriately....
at least now he will know to punch that bicch next time.
*correction to comment* and NOT become an attacker
the hell with louisiana bunch of rasists fu54848ks last mont a was on my way to texas from florida to my mothers funeral and this rasist piece of dirt cop on a ragity piece of dirt pickup truck pulled me over for speeding and gave me a ticket and when a tod him my story he started laughin rite on my face and yes he was white
Did you read the article? Another bar employee called the police, not the bartender.In Louisiana you can't shove; considered battery.And they will arrest women for it just as quick as they will men.Guess they figure you can make a point without physical altercations.Just sayin...
It doesn't matter what color a man is, he has no right to lay hands on any woman in an aggresive manner, even if that woman is aggressive or a bully. If he is a real man, has honor and decency, it is his responsibility to walk away from said woman and become an attacker! and for people to stand around and let any assault on a woman take place and do nothing to stop it is shameful! Being a bartender or server does not give anyone the right to assault that server! that kind of thinking is ridiculous! Color is not important. What matters is people in this country are losing their humanity. It's sad and disgraceful. I pray for the souls of all involved.
And you are assuming the story is true. Maybe she put her hands on him instead, we really do not know.
Nonsense! No man should take crap off of anybody, even if it is a bully of a woman. She deserves to get knocked out just like anybody else dumb enough to touch another. I am a woman, but despise other women who make such absurd claims. Welcome to the 21st Century, sweetheart.
The bartender sounds like an idiot, so she is another embarrassment to the female gender. If a patron (famous or not) is being harassed, then the appropriate action is to approach the people who are harassing him. To tell Cuba to "calm down" is ridiculous.
Sounds like a non story.
@ Reality Check. U must keep busy trying to get all the statistics on blackfolks business. How do u ppl know this bartender is even white. Oh yeah the police came before she could say the N-word. Get a freeking life.
Kitty... Reality check is just stating the facts. And those facts aren't just "blackfolks" business. They're everyone's business. And the N word wasn't in play at all. What are you bringing it up for?
America....you won some medals today at the Olympics. I live in Canada – so I saw it happen LIVE. NBC sucks. and CNN refused to post my last comment......will they post this one?
feeling so sad for the yanks this week...........saw phelps win his 19th LIVE this afternoon........so sad you guys have to put up with bobby and ryan.......
Canada you guys suck in sports
Juanito. Canada sucks at sports not in sports. Just saying.
Oh you must be a Newfie.The rest of Canadians are smart people.
Cuba who....another victim of the Oscar curse. Jerry Maguire sucked anyway.
Like Cuba's father once sang, "everybody plays the fool, sometime"
Maybe he would have stayed around for questioning if the bar's staff had not asked him to leave
Oh come on now. If you are going to be tending bar at 3 am in the FRENCH QUARTER. You need to know how to take a push. No harm, no foul. And, you can't arrest somebody for being rude.
If she wanted him arrested for being drunk, she should have just held her peace until the police officers showed up. By now, the alcohol is out of his system, and it's a case of pushing with an open hand? She wasn't hurt, so why a warrant Don't you have to have EVIDENCE to get a warrant for an arrest.
My advice to the bartender: Learn self defense, then maybe you won't be afraid a little push, and can even block something stronger.
Sounds like an uppity bartender to me.
We all get angry way too fast. I admit this as well. What has become of us? The economy? The divorce rate? Our rights? What is up with the tempers? Finger pointing? And I am to blame also. But Im just saying. Whats Earth going to look like...how are people going behave....will become of the diversity here in the year 2030? Its getting ugly. What are we going to leave behind for our children's children? We need to put down the gloves and go home and eat dinner. I love y'all. Sorry Jordan – youre right.
Come on get real bartender.
So if women cause so much drama...... and men cant lift a finger without women calling mommy and daddy.....and as soon as mommy and daddy arrive, they automatically take her side and issue a warrant for arrest for the man....... and people of different cultures blame each other for something they arent even a part of but this has become another avenue to release blind hatred...... isn't this life just so sad? My brothers and sisters, where is the love? Only during Christmas time? Only when the Detroit Lions win the superbowl? Im white and at times I wish I was no color at all. We all heard of Martin Luther King. We are all one. We need to start acting like family. We are all in this life together.
Before I clicked on the story, I thought he might be wanted for questioning in the disappearance of his career.
This is absurd. A guy pushes a woman away from him. Doesn't even push her down and the police want to arrest him. Man this country is becoming one big stinking crunt.
I would call the cops too if I saw this dude. I mean, have you seen any of his movies ??? Instead of being straight-to-video releases, most of them should be straight-to-the-garbage-[pail releases.
I just hope he doesn't smell as bad as his movies in person...
Hey "Black" hahahaha Im white and I agree ...... hahahahah. Lets regroup and focus on real matters at hand. Lets get it on with Iran.
Hahahahahahahahahahaahhaahahahahahhahaaahahahaaa ........ why do women stink up the world so much?????
Can you stop and think it could be only your wife
Keep your panties in texas fool...the white trash is just looking some money and a interveiw from cnn...white trash:)
Keep your panties in texas fool...the white trash is just looking some money and a intreveiw from cnn...white trash:)
See? Just goes to show you all ..... stars are just the same as all of us ..... we are all @ssholes. They are not God. They are not perfect. They are not immortal. They are not almighty. They are @ssholes too. Hell .... look at Mel Gibson. He hates women just like most of us do. Women are dumb, stupid and sensless. Stay in the kitchen!!!!
So Doctor... you hate women - that's cool I guess... You sure sound angry though. I am curious though, do you like men?
Excellent Steph! What kind of a Doctor are you Clown! That's what most MD's are about anyway..not caring about women, kids, or even themselves! Vaccinate yourself!
It sounds like you're a single gay man ( so you think your mom is stupid)
Why are blacks so aggressive?
Why are YOU so stupid?
It's the chicken and waffles( or maybe the watermelon) you see that is being racist :p
Just checked the comments following the Fred Willard story to see if anyone (Doctor) posed the question, why are white males so perverted? Didn't find that question. Funny how Cuba Gooding Jr.'s situation is representative of all blacks while Fred Willard's situation is an isolated case involving an individual. Hold on to that self-righteous sense of arrogance Doc.
Don't forget the Kool aid too
I really don't care about all the stories but I do love the comments
Little Juan is that adjective for height or depth? You cannot blame the blacks for your small penis or brain.
"he soon became 'very aggravated' with other bar patrons who had recognized him and wanted to take photos with the actor."
In his defense, it was probably because they were all shouting, "Hey look it's the Allstate guy!"
I miss the good old days when all of this was just part of a night on the town. You didn't have people calling the cops or freaking out and spilling to the press over a couple of shoves. People are such pansies these days.
Cut down on the booze Cuba and next time let your body gaurds handle the situation.
He left, so what reason do the cops have to make an arrest when no1 was injured!! So sick of cops sticking their noses where it doesn't belong just so they can extort more people.
He touched a female, they rule the world now ya know?
I am sick of the actors who make tons of money off movie goers for doing such a easy job then being a jerk cause fans want to have a picture taken with them. They are NOT gods!
Jason = clueless. If the warrant had not been issued then you or someone as clueless as you would be crying about him getting special treatment.
Sounds like she touched his arm to get his attention and he shrugged her off as to say don't touch me. I seriously doubt Cuba is just going around pushing folks...he's Radio for crying out loud...
i really hate when white people try to defend the moon crickets
Robert Blake. Phil Spectre. Mel Gibson. All white guys who harmed women. Has nothing to do with race. Black men may be predisposed to like watermelon and fried chicken. But white men seem to have it in in their DNA to be serial killers and Columbine/Aurora mass murderers. And how many black guys are ever arrested for Phucking kids? Like Mr. Sandusky or Catholic priests? Meanwhile even as i am typing this another white guy...John Travolta...is fondling the bawlz of some terrified massage therapist.
What cracks me up abourt racists like you who spew on about white people is tah you are probably the first one to whine and play the race card the minute you don't get your way
Well sir, if you want to keep sterotypes going, then you must consider that , "blacks" molest too many children, they shoot their guns (that they never clean and never have more than a few bullets at a time for) at whatever moves as well.
However, they do not call police, and they will not "snitch", even on pedophiles because they see repoting a crime as worse than rubbing on a defenseless child. So, more is committed than seen, we just do not have it written down.
These are your rules, just wanted to put in all of your, "information", since you left quite a bit out.
What's so wrong with liking fried chicken,well it is high in fat and cholesterol,but it tastes so good and watermelon is delicious and good for you,and my white,Hispanic and Asian friends love it.
RICK DA RULER,
You too the hammer and hit the nail right on the the head with it. It's amazing how white ppl can only see the crimes that black males committ, when some of the worst crimes in this country have been committed by white males, just like this recent movie theater mass killing.
But you have white ppl still trying to justifie this guys actions = calling him a kid when this man is 24 years old. I'm not gone be surprised when he is diagnoised as mentally ill, but let him had been a black guy, he would already be labeled another violent black thug.
how is this categorized as news? he pushed somebody away, "NO INJURIES" this is not a story
If you ain't white, you ain't right
HAHAHA!!! White, black, brown, yellow, red, whatever, this is not a story. That bartender probably wants some $$. She wasn't injured. Soon we will see an update, regarding a law suit. Classic.
"SHOW ME DA MONEY" thats what that lil bartender will be saying soon.
He is black and rich RACIST eat your poor heart out and take a pan to the intersection
Did your mom teach you to keep your hands to yourself :p
Hello folks. Everyone is cordially invited to visit – thestarofkaduri.com
Is it a porn site
like your moms!!!!
I'm anxiously awaiting a "Snow Dogs" reboot. Maybe with Chris Tucker this time around.
@CJ17,don't you wish you could make all that money lol?
Racism is at its peek with some jealous people. Being black and rich is not an offence and for any racist hiding behind the computer or smart phone and airing out garbage is whimpy flat jealosy. Guess the guy that shot and killed people in colorado, for the fact that he is white makes the crime ok. Losers with no education turns to be racist
Only 57% of blacks graduate compared to 79% white
Yeah, it's a black thing
Speaking of education, where did you learn to spell?
Every race and I mean EVERY, has bad apples. Not one race is pure.. To say that all blacks are bad is grossly untrue and to say that whites don't have their issues, is being blind. There's good and bad in every race.
blackarrival 20 plus % of the community but 70% of all prisons
Yeah, it's a black thing for the most part
What an ass he is. Why are bars open at 3 am? That's just asking for trouble. The famous are not immune to bad behavior. We see it every day in the news.
the bars are open 24hrs here, we know how to control ourselves. Why do you close your bars early?
You know how to control yourselves? LOL. Your crime rate says NOT!
I don't think this has anything to do with him being a black guy - he just kind of sounds like a D*CK to me. You can't be a "star" and then get bent out of shape when the people who made you get excited about seeing you. Oh well. If I where the bartender, I probably would not have called the cops. That seems to be a bit of an overreaction in my opinion and I am a woman too.
Can I frisk him??
You are a famous actor. When you walk into a bar people will want to take pictures. It goes with the territory. If you don't want to be bothered stay at home. I also think the bartender took it too far.
It will all be Okay in the End. Cuba Gooding is a Real Macho Man. He is a Winner.
He pushed a woman TWICE and you think its ok? Maybe black women dont mind that treatment but white women wont stand for it. I hope he goes to jail.
money and his lawyer will get him off, just like pushing white woman will
You are Not Very Nice. Thanks for being a racist.
Didn't Obama admit to pushing a young girl?
You can't be serious...Nicole Simpson, Brett Butler, Charlize Theron, Taylor Armstrong, Christina Aguilera, etc. And these are just some of the celebrities. White women won't stand for it? Please.
Terri what do black women have to do with this? And by the way his wife is white. So he is accustomed to living with a white woman, she was his high school sweet heart and they married.
Do you know what a racist looks like, look in the mirror.
For your info. Cuba"sellout" Gooding Jr. dont even date black women so you can keep us the he-ll out of it. If black women taking so much abuse why are so many white women truning up dead at the hands of their significant others ?
Lol maybe it just means black people are better at not getting caught when they kill their women
Face it. Fans and tourists can be a horror.
Hip hop generation has crippled America ! It's not cool to be a drug dealer like the song claims
In the back of her mind she's thinking, "Show me the money!". She's a bartender, not a bouncer. She was out of line.
...wow. how is that even relatively illegal? And I like how a race card gets thrown into play on these comment boards. Completely irrelevant to the story.
What do you know stfu sean.
If someone got arrested everytime they pushed or touched an interferring bartender, the jails would be filled. She's trying to gain some fame, and maybe money, at this dude's expense. Can't handle the heat, get a different job. Why was she stepping in when it should have been the Bouncer's job? Something is off in this tale.
I agree about the comment that she's looking for fame. Bartenders are regularly pushed by intoxicated patrons and unless they get punched they usually just toss the drunk people out. No police, no battery warrants, etc. Dealing with intoxicated dumb a$$es is part of their job.
More free publicity and all charges will be dropped.
I feel sorry for Cuba Gooding. After growing up in the hood and watching is best friend die in front of you, what do you expect? He grew up around bloods and crips in an urban jungle, even his other friend, pookie was killed. He got lucky with a football scholarship and got out the hood after playing for Arizona, but that wasn't easy either. But he was still a good dad at the same time. So bottom line is, when you grow up like that in the hood n stuff and all that pressure and violence, what do you expect?
@Christian get to church or at least get more creative ya suck.
For some reason people seem to think celebs are above the law... NOT! IF HE DID PUSH THIS WOMAN HE NEEDS TO BE ASHAME OF HIMSELF, IF I WASN`T HURT I DONT THINK I WOULD HAVE CALLED THE POLICE, UNLESS IT REALLY GOT OUT OF HAND, PEOPLE HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS, FAMOUS OR FROM COLOCRADO MOVIE THEATER!
it is because he is black!!!! This is very racist
It's so annoying how black people like to play victim and play the race car. "It's because he was black" no it's because he's ghetoo, and that happens to come in all shapes, sizes and COLORS!
What is "Red Tails"? Another hate and fear mongering anti-white film? What a load of crap. Two pushes makes a fight?
Its just a little film about this event you may have heard of; wwII
Red Tails was not anti white,everything is not about white people okay?
No, it's a film about the Tuskaloosa Airmen, courageous pilots in WWII, who happened to be the first blacks allowed to train as military pilots. During the war they performed admirably, saving the lives of many bomber crewmen.
The film wasn’t about WWII. It took place durning WWII. I was also a horrible remake of a good movie.
cuba needs an AA meeting a.s.a.p. & he needs to stop being a bully. shame on cuba!
black males[majority] make a hobby of beating women. what rock have you been keeping your head under??????????????my local rag has posted over 15 assaults,and almost as many murders by bm,s against bw's since january this year...if it looks like a duck.........................
they are all preditors period! Rich, poor. Famous or infamous
and white males have are notorious mass murder and pedophiles. I would rather hit than some creep raping my child or killing innocent people sitting in a theater including a 6 yr old. Dah!
It’s funny you see that as your other option lol. You must be black.
I told him to lay off the bath salts and come to the Scientology meetings...
I've always find him very annoying, but surprised he did this...
Cannot believe they want to arrest him for this. Can believe this woman would want to settle out of court.
I imagine he will likely turn himself in after he wakes up and gets over his hangover and finds out he's wanted by the police.
Could have happened to anyone but because he's an actor itt makes the news. I sure hope he doesnt pee in the alley....whoahh!! Front page!!!
That's why this is called the "entertainment" section. Actors are entertainers, so when one of them do something, it ends up on this section! Anything else you need lessons on now?
That's his "Quam"
Oooo,petty people what does his color or his occupation have to do with this?I've seen people of all creeds and colors go off on public workers,grow up.
It's the real him! Money can't hide his DNA
I wish he would push me! I hate phony ass wannabes . He will need that thick wallet when he falls on his ass
Does a little money make him tough? Or the fact he had money groupies with him !
Show me the money
pushing women?? snubbing the people that made him his money so he could go into bars,snub the people that made him his money as well as pushing ladies around....???? the color speaks for itself.
mudd, it's not a black or white thing , it's the fact he doesn't know how to be a man. He is a ghetto wannabe
Because white men never get drunk and push a woman or any person in a bar. Lol whatever
Pushing women is not out of line. If women are going to act like men then they can be treated like men.
@Reality check,reality check Cuba's from the burbs not the ghetto you jealous dick.
Because of that fact many women (particularly the french quarter bartender type, hardly worthy of being called a "lady") think they can act tough and push a guy around hiding behind the I'm a woman thing. Some girls simply need put in their place from time to time. If you are unaware of these bully women you are simply uninformed.
not a b/w thing??? horse sh–. it most certainly is.....
MUDD, Stay in school.
i guess american means racist . nevermind where you and your family came from. lets just hide behind hate and what does it get you ? everybody you practice racisim toward is more than likely twice more educated surely a better person . simply because he or she has found out the world does not belong to them.
Tending bar through college I can honestly say that I was "assaulted" almost nightly...at least by this woman's standards. As someone above said...grow a pair honey or else get out from behind the bar because rough treatment from drunks is practically part of the job description.
im sure some do, but black men seem to be out later looking for white girls !
Not that I'm teaching you anything you didn't all ready
billie bob- your name says it all!!
How's life living with your mom
would you expect anything less from a black?
I guess if he was white he would have put on a batman costume and shot them all dead. You racists are complete morons.
Perpetual stupidity doesn't suit you.
Well you wouldn't expect one to go into a movie theater and shot and kill 12 innocent people just out to see a movie
AMANDA, your comment reflects "less"
what do you see when you look in the mirror, hope your insecurity improves
dont worry obama will get him off the hook
He would need to hire someone to load the guns, can't kill a group of folks with a 40 ounce
Her version. His version. And the truth.
What a no talent has been!
Mitch – I guess you missed the part about Gooding being an Oscar winner. What movies have you acted in? That's right, none.
Cp in FL A man with millions who is an a$$hoL* is no less an a$$hol* because of the millions. Same goes for oscars. If you're a beer muscle punk wih an oscar you are a still a beer muscle punk. You have to realize you're famous and people would love a photo with you. I understand it's annoying but..... Tell them you're having a private party for a friend, maybe tomorrow.
CP in FL.......Different Mitch.
Show me the money!
DONT MESS WITH TRE STYLES!
Wow, this girl needs to grow a pair if she plans on continuing to work in a bar. Does she file a police report on every annoying patron? Nope... only the recognizable star who didn't actually feel like taking a picture of her. You're in the service industry honey, do your job.
Exactly, that's the scenery, people get pushed around ON ACCIDENT all the time. I guess that has never happened in a bar with a drunk person before. Haha
She only files reports on those people who push her around, I would assume. Working in the service industry does not allow others to push you around.
Show me the money ........drinking 101 : keep your hands to yourself !!
The dude had liquid courage in him. So he wanted to try and act tough!
How pitifull, this happens everynite somewhere in this country. People will do anything if thiers an oppurtunity for free money. Cuba, be carefull, your in the south. Plus, Cuba has no trail of violence and he's an awesome actor. P.S. When someone works in a bar, they need to wear thier big girl panties. The whole thing is ridiculus.
Being in the South does not have one thing to do with the altercation. Let's wait until police reports come out.
HAHA what a light weight! How embarassing!
Sheeeit, you best get the man his absinthe.
he was jus mad cuz dey didn't have not fry chickin & watmellun
bi*ch shoulda known better than to f with cub man. Boyz from da hood.
