Court Summons Issued For Cuba Gooding, Jr. After Arrest Warrant Dropped
Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding, Jr., 44, has been summoned to appear in court on Friday morning to address allegations that he committed municipal battery at a bar in New Orleans on Tuesday.
It was initially being reported that New Orleans police had issued a warrant for Gooding's arrest after an incident in which he allegedly became irritated at fans trying to photograph him and ended up in a skirmish with the female bartender, whom he allegedly pushed twice, reports ABC News.
The warrant, however, has since been dropped. "There is no warrant," wrote Nancy Kane, Gooding's publicist, via email, reports the Washington Post. "Mr. Gooding, his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding."
A court summons has been issued instead of the warrant for Gooding, who recently starred in George Lucas-produced Red Tails and is now in New Orleans to film the upcoming The Butler, a flick about a White House butler who serves under eight American Presidents, also starring Liam Neeson, Alex Pettyfer, Minka Kelly, John Cusack, Nicole Kidman, Robin Williams, Melissa Leo, Liev Schreiber, Alan Rickman and James Marsden.
Gooding is expected to appear in court on Friday. The Butler will hit theaters in 2013.
