Cuba Gooding Junior - Cuba Gooding Jr Summoned To A Court Hearing On Friday Over Alleged Municipal Battery


Cuba Gooding Jr has had a warrant for his arrest dropped, in an update to earlier reports today (August 1st); however he is now expected to appear in court on Friday over the allegations, widely reported earlier in the week, that he'd committed municipal battery.
The Washington Post reports that, on Tuesday, the New Orleans police force had issued a warrant for the arrest of the actor following an incident at a bar called the Big Easy in which he allegedly became agitated by fans who wouldn't leave him alone. The agitation manifested itself, apparently, into him going on to shove a female waiter. However, according to Gooding Jr's publicist Nancy Kane, there was in fact no warrant. "There is no warrant," she said tersely. "Mr. Gooding, his representative and the New Orleans authorities met this morning and are moving swiftly to resolve this misunderstanding."
The actor apparently met police about the issue on Wednesday regardless, though, and will now come back for a more formal addressing on Friday at 9am in the morning. It's important to note that he has not been arrested or charged with any crime at this point, indeed, if the hearing on Friday shows that the whole thing has been a misunderstanding, the whole matter will likely be dropped. That's something that'll come as a relief to Gooding, who is only in New Orleans to work on his new film 'The Butler'.
