Gary Coleman Wheeled Out of Jail
Diff'rent Strokes star Gary Coleman told cameras he doesn't like jail and doesn't want to see it again after emerging from a Utah prison in a wheelchair. INSIDE EDITION has more.
"I don't like jail, I don't ever want to see it again," 1980's sitcom star Gary Coleman told cameras.
The Diff'rent Strokes actor left jail in a wheelchair. He was finally bailed out after spending 27 hours behind bars.
Coleman told RadarOnline he was busted after missing a court date in connection with a domestic violence arrest. He said he couldn't go to court because he had minor heart surgery.
"Well I don't want to spread that around 'cause I don't want too many people worrying about that because then they won't hire me for work," he told RadarOnline.
His father-in-law told INSIDE EDITION that Coleman didn't have the cash for the $1,725 bail. It turns out two freelance journalists paid it for him.
Coleman's finances have been a shambles for years. He even famously took a job as a security guard and was caught on tape jumping on someone's car.
Coleman left jail in a wheelchair because he underwent dialysis for a kidney condition while behind bars.
"I'm just taking it easy today because I'm tired and I want to go home," said Coleman. He also said his experience in jail was miserable.
