New Orleans Bartender Not Pressing Charges Against Cuba Gooding Jr.

Bartender not filling charges against Cuba Gooding Jr

We might press charges for wearing that outfit though! LOLz!

After causing an uproar at a Bourbon Street bar in New Orleans this past Tuesday and allegedly assaulting a bartender, Cuba Gooding Jr. may be getting off scot-free.

Despite telling the police that Cuba shoved her not once, but twice during the altercation, the bartender is NOT pressing charges.

A spokeswoman from the Old Absinthe House told sources:

"It is our understanding the employee involved in the alleged altercation has chosen to drop all charges against Mr. Cuba Gooding Jr. While we continue to investigate this matter internally, we are hopeful that this will put an end to the matter."

Although he met with police after a warrant was reportedly issued for his arrest, Cuba apparently sorted things out.

Still, his arraignment on the charges is scheduled for Friday. No word on whether or not he actually needs to show. It sounds like the misdemeanor charge of municipal battery will disappear real soon.

Regarldess, pushing women is a BIG no-no! Let's hope Cuba learns from this mistake so we don't hear about any more similar incidents in the future.

    I saw Cuba in New Orleans! He was very nice. Bourbon street is a disaster. I am sure this story is fabricated.

    I saw Cuba in Miami a few month ago. I was in the club LIV with my two girlfriends friends and he was touching us inapropiadly, at first I smiled and pushed his hand away but he wouldn't stop bothering us, so I asked him for "respect" and he flipped! he said, "You have to respect me!" got very aggressive! Telling me to get the F out of there, and other crazy things to the point that I feared for my safety.
    I'm sure the bartender got a buch of Money in exchange to drop the ALL the charges.

    Someone needs to get this guy a movie to salvage his career before he goes full-on Kirby Puckett.

    Isn't it strange CGJr's charges were dropped and RBs charges will stick. I actually don't think either one of them deserve more than a warning. When you have a tourist type place it gives the appearance of a shake-down operation where dropped charges appear to be a commodity ; there are "real" assaults and real robberies and in my opinion neither situation rose to that level.
    But hey- I don't live there!
