Misdemeanor battery charges have been dropped against Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. related to a bar altercation in the New Orleans’ French Quarter.

City spokesman Ryan Berni said an arraignment hearing was held Friday but there was no one to press the complaint. As a result, he said, the city moved to drop the charges.

“This ends the case,” Berni said.

Police say the bartender told them that Gooding became upset after patrons started asking him to pose for photos with them at about 3 a.m. The bartender told investigators that Gooding pushed her after she asked him to calm down and again after she told him he should leave and that police had been called.
