But Gary Coleman was indeed arrested several times.

He was the child star of "Diff'rent Strokes", making as much as $100,000 a show at his earning's peak.

His catch phrase: "What chu talkin' about Willis?" was one of the show's popular running gags?

However, as an adult Gary had several legal problems.

He successfully sued his adoptive parents over misappropriation of his trust fund and won a 1.25 million dollar judgment in 1993.

In 1998, he was charged with assault while working as a security guard. He claimed he felt threatened by a fan seeking an autograph and punched her in the face a few times.

There were disorderly conduct and reckless driving charges growing out of an auto accident that followed a fight in a Utah bowling alley in 2008. He was fined $100 after pleading no contest to disorderly conduct.

In 2007, there was a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge in Provo, Utah after a public argument with his wife, Shannon Price. It foreshadowed a 2009 incident in which Gary and Price were involved in a domestic dispute and she was arrested…

…on suspicion of domestic violence. Both parties were cited for disorderly conduct.

And in January 2010, Gary was arrested on a domestic assault warrant and booked into the Utah County jail. He was released the next day.

Gary died at age 42 and controversy followed him to the end of his brief life.
