Cuba Gooding Jr. is a wanted man: the New Orleans Police Department have issued a misdemeanor battery warrant after receiving a complaint that the 44-year-old actor pushed a female bartender at a Bourbon Street bar early Tuesday morning, TMZ reports.
According to reports, the Oscar-winner got into a heated argument with fellow bar patrons who were trying to take his photograph at The Old Absinthe House.
He was then asked to leave by a female bartender. Things reportedly turned physical and Gooding Jr. allegedly shoved the female staffer who had asked him to vacate the premises.
Gooding Jr. is in New Orleans filming The Butler, the story of a White House butler who served eight presidents over the course of 30 years.
BOSTON – A man who was severely bitten in the ankle and calf may have been attacked by a shark Monday afternoon while body surfing off Ballston Beach in Truro.
Several witnesses said they saw a shark fin about a third of a mile off the beach at about 3:30 p.m. before the attack.
The man, said to be in his 40s, was taken off the beach by rescue personnel with significant wounds to his left leg, witnesses said.
Witnesses told police they saw the shark’s dorsal fin rise up out of the water and saw a shark circle the man and then briefly pull him under.
One described it as a scene out of “Jaws.” The man had been body surfing with his teenage son.
Beach-goers heard his screams and helped pull him to shore. Doctors, who happened to be on the beach, helped control the bleeding.
The beach will be closed Tuesday, an employee told NewsCenter 5.
The man, whose name hasn’t been released, was conscious when he was loaded into an ambulance. Witnesses said the man had a deep wound — down to the bone — on one leg.
Beachgoer Marshall Simpkins said he arrived on the scene when the man was being put into the ambulance.
