Coleman Settles Suit With Fan In Reckless Driving Case

GARY COLEMAN has reached a settlement with a disgruntled fan who accused the DIFF'RENT STROKES star of running him over with his truck.
The actor was slapped with a personal injury lawsuit from Colt Rushton, who alleged he was assaulted after trying to take pictures of Coleman and his wife, Shannon Price, as they left a Utah bowling alley in 2008.
Rushton claims he took a few shots before a member of the former child star's entourage confronted him, telling him he would have to pay for the privilege of photographing the actor.
Rushton declined the offer and alleged Coleman then struck him in the chest before climbing into his truck and driving into him.
According to, the suit was dismissed on Tuesday (12Jan10) after Coleman, Price and Rushton came to a settlement agreement.
The terms of the deal have been kept confidential.
