Little Big Man: Gary Coleman Busted on Domestic-Violence Warrant


America’s safe for now because Gary Coleman is behind bars. The little guy with big problems is in the slammer in Utah, picked up on a domestic-violence warrant.

Details not known, but last reports say he was still in jail despite a piddling bond. The warrant may involve the Diff’rent Strokes star’s wife, Shannon Price. They’ve long tussled. See their appearance on Divorce Court above. Other videos here.

I can’t wait to seem him as Travis Bickle.

So far, the best role for this way-past-his-prime-time actor has been as a star of The Surreal Life.

But if they ever make a Taxi Driver sequel, he’d be perfect: “You talkin’ to me, Willis? You talkin’ to me?”
