SANTAQUIN, Utah — Actor Gary Coleman has been arrested on a warrant for failing to appear in court, police said.

The 41-year-old former "Diff'rent Strokes" actor was booked into the Utah County Jail Sunday, said Santaquin police officer Shawn Carter.

He said early Monday that he didn't have details on the warrant or know if Coleman was still being held. He said more information would be released later in the day.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Utah County Jail records show he was arrested after police received reports of a disturbance at his Santaquin home.

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.
