Yesterday, Gary Coleman finally had his day in court:
Pint-sized Gary Coleman has pleaded no contest to charges stemming from a bizarre blowup at a fan outside a bowling alley. A judge ordered the 40-year-old former star of “Diff’rent Strokes” to pay a $100 fine Tuesday after he pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge.
According to court documents, Coleman, his wife and his bodyguard were going bowling in Payson, about 60 miles south of Salt Lake City, when Colt Rushton took a few photos of him with his cell phone camera and took a few more of Coleman’s truck in the parking lot. Rushton’s lawyer says Coleman’s wife took Rushton’s cell phone, a scuffle ensued and then Coleman ran into Rushton with his truck as he was backing out of the parking lot.
Gary’s lucky they didn’ throw his little crusty ass into the slammer, but can be sure that $100 fine sent Gary back a few with those shallow pockets of his. Poor fella.
