Coleman Speaks Out Following Arrest

Actor GARY COLEMAN has spoken out after his release from a Utah jail, following his arrest for allegedly attacking his wife SHANNON.
The former child star was arrested and jailed on Sunday (24Jan10) after police were called to his home, but no criminal charges were filed.
Upon arriving at his home, police discovered a misdemeanour failure to appear warrant for Coleman from an unrelated incident and took him into custody.
Coleman has now posted $1,725 (£1,080) bail and was released on Monday (25Jan10).
The Diff'rent Strokes star has spoken out to explain the reason for his missed court date appearance - he was allegedly absent because he was in hospital undergoing an operation.
He tells RadarOnline.com, "I was in the hospital getting minor surgery."
Coleman's father, who picked up the star from the prison, revealed to the website the actor had received heart surgery.
But Coleman reportedly insisted he didn't "want to spread that around," because he fears his condition will prevent him from getting work.
But the 41 year old is relieved he is free from his jail cell: "I'm happy as a clam... I just want to come home."
He is due to appear in court on 8 February (10).
