Police have issued an arrest warrant for Cuba Gooding Jr. after an altercation at a New Orleans bar in the early hours of this morning, according to TMZ.


The Jerry Maguire actor is allegedly accused of shoving a female bartender at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street around 2am.

The star, 44, became agitated and started swearing when bar patrons who recognized began taking photos, a witness tells the website.

When the female bartender approached the actor and asked him to leave, he allegedly pushed her up against the wall.


Police are now under orders to arrest Cuba on sight.


The star is currently in New Orleans to film The Butler, about a White House employee who serves eight Presidents over the course of three decades, with Oprah Winfrey and Lenny Kravitz. 


He was last spotted on set on Friday where he appeared to be in good spirits. 


A spokesperson for the actor had no comment.
