Gary Coleman is out of jail and back in his Utah home, thanks to the kindness of a fan. Jarrod Clarke, a local businessman and 'Diff'rent Strokes' fan who had never met Coleman, posted the $1,725 bail, Radaronline.com reports.
"I felt bad for the guy," Clarke told Radar. "I grew up watching him and I know he has had a hard life. To see that sad mug shot, for only $1700, I thought it was the least I could do."
Coleman, 41, was arrested Sunday on an outstanding domestic violence warrant. He told Radar he had missed his court date because he'd been in the hospital getting surgery, though he didn't want to say what sort as he thought it might prevent him from getting acting work. He was booked into the Utah County Jail and released late Monday, looking frail in a wheelchair but "happy as a clam" to be headed home.
His wife, Shannon Price, 24, was arrested in July for domestic abuse. She allegedly broke items belonging to Coleman without causing him physical harm. Both Price and Coleman were busted for disorderly conduct at a local bowling alley in 2008.
