Gary Coleman arrested on an outstanding warrant in Utah

Gary booking Gary Coleman -- and we assume his penis as well -- was arrested Saturday night and remains behind bars today.

Police in Santaquin, Utah, outside Salt Lake City, were called to the former child actor's home on a report of a domestic disturbance, but no evidence of a crime was found; he was taken into custody, however, because of an outstanding failure-to-appear warrant from 2009.

All this after Coleman, less than two weeks ago, settled a personal-injury suit with a man who said Gary tried to run him over with his truck in a bowling-alley parking lot. And it's not the first time the police have been called to Gary's place -- his wife, Shannon Price, was taken in last year and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and disorderly conduct.

Anyone out there going to step up with Gary's $1,750 get-out-of-jail-on-bail bond? After all, that comedy club guy did post $60,000 for Andy Dick over the weekend.

This is really sad..and so is the picture.

How do you help people like this! You may think it doesn't affect you but you're wrong. So much darkness and pain affects us all. We don't need fuzzy-headed, do-gooder approaches but we do need sensible, mature people seeing this for what it is...troubled, wounded members of the broader community that, when ridiculed and abandoned, will continue to shred the social contract and inflict pain and hurt on everyone.

We need to change our attiudes or they will change us...and narrow the distance between us and the Gary Coleman's of the world.

Patricia- you are very depressing- lighten up.

hey...gary coleman could ask george clooneys "haitian relief fund" for a handout to make bail...what's $57 million minus $1750? just an idea.
