SANTAQUIN, Utah (AP) — Actor Gary Coleman has been booked into a Utah jail after police received reports of a civil disturbance at his Santaquin home, according to news reports.

Utah County Jail records show the 41-year-old former “Diff’rent Strokes” actor was booked Sunday on suspicion of domestic assault, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

But the paper said the Santaquin police wrote in a press statement that Coleman was arrested on a warrant alleging he failed to appear in court in a previous case.

KSL-TV says that as of Sunday night Coleman’s $1,725 bail had not been posted.

The Santaquin police and the county sheriff’s office did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.

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 child star. The case was reportedly been settled out of court.
