An arrest warrant has been issued for actor Cuba Gooding Jr after an alleged incident at a bar.

Police in New Orleans said in a news release that a bartender told officers that Cuba became upset with other patrons who asked him to take photographs with them.

The bartender told officers that the Hollywood star pushed her after she asked him to calm down, and again after she told him he needed to leave and police had been called.

Cuba left the bar before police arrived. Police issued an arrest warrant on suspicion of municipal battery.

The Jerry Maguire star's publicist declined to comment. The actor is in New Orleans filming The Butler, a movie about a White House butler who serves eight American presidents.
