The Latest in Gary Coleman's Death: A Restraining Order Against Shannon Price

INSIDE EDITION has learned that Gary Coleman had a restraining order issued against his ex-wife Shannon Price just months before his death, claiming she was out to destroy his property.

Gary Coleman secretly took out a restraining order against his ex-wife, Shannon Price just three months before his death.

The documents, obtained by Radar Online, were only recently discovered because they were filed under the names John Doe versus Jane Doe. Gary painted a disturbing picture of Shannon Price, writing, "Both during and subsequent to the marriage, there have been incidences of domestic violence."  Gary also claimed that Shannon "has shown a tendency to damage, destroy and steal my property and I believe she will continue to do so in my absence and while she is trespassing in my home."

Gary filed the papers last February while he was in the hospital recovering from heart surgery. He accused Shannon of using his hospitalization as an opportunity to move back into his Utah home without his permission. Gary was granted the restraining order, but he never served it on his ex-wife.
