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.” Gooding’s lawyer did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
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 of 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.
