Gary Coleman: Arrested for Domestic Violence

by at . Comments

There may be different strokes for different folks, but violence is never an answer, Gary Coleman.

The diminutive former sitcom star was arrested on one count of domestic assault (a misdemeanor) in Santaquin, Utah this afternoon. He was picked up due to a warrant stemming from a prior incident.

Coleman was held on $1,725 bail and released a day after his arrest. Police would not report the name of the alleged victim, but Gary and wife Shannon Price have had many problems over the years.

The couple actually appeared on Divorce Court in 2008 and Price was arrested for domestic violence in July of last year. We'll keep our eyes on this story as it progresses.

** UPDATE: Coleman's lawyer has emphasized that his client was not arrested on a new charge:

"During the course of the investigation, a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear was located for Gary Coleman. Mr. Coleman was taken into custody and booked at the Utah County Jail without incident. The arrest warrant is unrelated to the original [call]."
