January 24, 2010

It can’t be: Gary Coleman arrested for domestic violence? That’s right, and it’s not his first time in cuffs either. Read about it here, and see photos and video.

He’s apparently been having a bad year so far. As you may know, the former Different Strokes star was rushed to the hospital earlier this month after what appeared to be a seizure. Now, just barely three weeks later, he was arrested and booked for a domestic violence charge.

It all went down in Santaquin, Utah, where he was taken into custody Sunday afternoon. TMZ reported that he also had a warrant issued for a previous incident that he hadn’t cleared up yet. As of press time, he was being held on $1,725 bail.

Are you surprised? Me, neither. That’s because it’s not the first time we’ve heard of Gary Coleman arrested. In fact, he has priors dating back to 1998, when he allegedly punched an overzealous fan who was making fun of him.

His first arrest related to domestic issues occurred in 2007, when he and his wife were getting a little too passionate during a public argument. That incident earned him a disorderly conduct charge. Yet again in 2009, he and his wife were both cited for disorderly conduct, but that time she was taken in on suspicion of domestic violence.

I’m personally a huge fan. I think he’s hilarious—especially when he was a cast member on the show Surreal Life. He’s probably one of the most recognizable former TV stars. It’s just hard to imagine him getting physical with anybody, but I guess the lady he supposedly slugged would tell you otherwise.

I’ll be interested to see how this one turns out. The story is still developing…
