NEW ORLEANS, USA (AP) — Misdemeanour battery charges related to a bar dust-up in New Orleans' French Quarter have been officially dropped against Academy Award-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr.


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.
