Gary Coleman Arrested

'Different Strokes' actor Gary Coleman was arrested this weekend on a domestic violence charge.

The American actor - best known for his role as Arnold Jackson in the US sitcom - was being held yesterday (24.01.10) for a misdemeanour count of domestic assault in Santaquin, Utah.

His bail was set at $1,725, as he also had an outstanding warrant for a prior incident.

A source told website RadarOnline: "He's been booked. He's in the jail right now."

The victim of the assault has not yet been revealed, and a police source

wouldn't say if they had specifically sought to arrest Coleman or if they had picked him up after a chance encounter.

Former child star Coleman, 41, has, however, had a rocky marriage to actress Shannon Price, 24, whom he wed in secret on August 2007.

Their marriage has been beset with public and private arguments, and they appeared on US TV show 'Divorce Court' to discuss their problems.

Price was arrested on domestic violence charges in July last year after an incident with her husband. She had locked the 4ft 8ins actor out of their house and police said his bedroom was trashed.

Coleman was also arrested in Utah in 2008 after a man claimed he'd tried to run over him in a car park after he tried to take a picture with him. The case was reportedly settled out of court.
