According to reports and witnesses, Cuba Gooding Jr. pushed a bartender early Tuesday morning. There is now a warrant out for his arrest.
Cuba Gooding Jr. was at The Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street in New Orleans having a few drinks when people in the bar began to take pictures of him. He then got really upset and started yelling profanity at the people within the bar. When a female bartender asked him several times to leave the premises, he pushed her. He then shoved her again.
Although an arrest wasn’t made that night, Gooding now has an arrest warrant for a misdemeanor battery charge.
Not only will being convicted of a misdemeanor battery charge be hurtful to Gooding’s criminal record, but it could be bad for his career. His actions may hinder him from finding jobs, considering he has begun to tarnish his reputation. This doesn’t just happen to those in the entertainment industry, but to people of all career choices.
Being accused of a crime isn’t just unlawful. It can hinder your life in many ways. You will face serious legal punishment as well as possible embarrassment. It can make it difficult for people and employers to see you in a positive light, which can affect your chance of finding jobs or being promoted should anyone find out.
