NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former child television star Gary Coleman spent the night behind bars after being arrested at his Utah home on domestic violence charges, according to Utah County jail records.

Police in Santaquin, Utah, where the former "Diff'rent Strokes" actor has a home, said they arrested Coleman on Sunday on a previous warrant after responding to a phone call reporting a disturbance at his residence.

"During the course of the investigation we found a failure to appear (on a) misdemeanor warrant and we simply booked him into jail," Sergeant Kris Johnson of the Santaquin Police Department said on Monday.

Details of Sunday's disturbance were not available. But Utah County jail records showed Coleman, 41, was being held there on domestic violence related charges in lieu of $1,725 bail.

It was the latest in a series of brushes with the law for Coleman, who married Shannon Price in 2007.

He was cited for disorderly conduct in 2007 after a heated argument with Price, and the following year the couple appeared on the TV show "Divorce Court" where they aired their marital difficulties.

Price was arrested last July on suspicion of domestic violence and disorderly conduct after another noisy argument with Coleman.

Johnson said no charges have yet been filed in the latest incident.
