Gary Coleman Arrested in Utah

(AP)
SANTAQUIN, Utah (CBS/AP) Former "Diff'rent Strokes" actor Gary Coleman was arrested in Utah after police received reports of a "civil disturbance" at his home, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

Records obtained by the paper show the 41-year-old was booked into the Utah County Jail Sunday on "suspicion of domestic assault." But according to a press statement by Santaquin police, Coleman was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court in a previous case.

Santaquin police officer Shawn Carter said early Monday that he didn't have details on the warrant or know if Coleman was still being held. He said more information would be released later in the day.

The actor was arrested in Utah in 2008 after a man claimed Coleman tried to run over him in a parking lot when he tried to take a picture with the former child star. The case was reportedly settled out of court.
