Gary Coleman arrested on an outstanding warrant in Utah

January 25, 2010 |  9:23 am

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.
