Little Gary Coleman is in big trouble. The “Diff’rent Strokes” actor spent the night in Utah County Jail on Sunday after domestic violence allegations. The identity of the victim and the details of the incident have yet to be released, but Coleman is currently being held on a bail of $1,725. The bail is for an outstanding warrant Coleman obtained when he failed to appear in court in 2009 for a separate domestic violence charge.

Coleman is married to Shannon Price, and it would not be surprising to find that she is the alleged victim. In 2007 and again in 2009, Coleman was cited for disorderly conduct after altercations with Price. Coleman was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in the 2009 incident.

The former child star has had a rough go of it in the past few years. In 1998 he was charged with assault after punching a woman in the face. He has had a string of incidences with his wife, Price. In 2008, Coleman was charged with disorderly conduct and reckless driving after he allegedly hit a man while backing his truck out of a bowling alley parking lot.

Coleman, who’s famous for playing Arnold in the '80s sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes,” hasn’t been doing much lately. He’s made a few cameos in largely unseen movies. His biggest accomplishment this decade was coming in 8th place in the California gubernatorial elections of 2003. He beat out the adult film actress Mary Carey, who came in 10th place, and the watermelon-smashing Gallagher, who came in 16th place. Congrats, Gary.

He currently works as a security guard, which makes sense since he has quite the intimidating stature. Then again, he seems to have no problem getting physical with people. His 4’8” height is merely a strategic ploy.
