Posted Tuesday July 31, 2012 2:33 PM GMT

He’s usually a pretty amicable celebrity, but Cuba Gooding Jr. had a rough time in New Orleans last night (July 30), and now there’s a warrant out for his arrest.

According to a report, the “Jerry Maguire” actor was partying at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street when he began arguing with fellow guests around 2:00am.

And as things escalated, Gooding allegedly ended up pushing a female bartender, causing her to call the police.

While no one was hurt, Cuba now has a warrant out for his arrest on charges of misdemeanor battery. He’s in the Big Easy to film “The Butler.”
