    My man Gary Coleman is at it again. Here is his latest courtesy of AP.

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ Gary Coleman has pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from a September incident at a bowling alley.

    The 40-year-old former star of "Diff'rent Strokes" was ordered to pay a $100 fine in a Payson court Tuesday. He also pleaded no contest to a reckless driving charge, which will be waived if he doesn't have any other violations within a year.

    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 Coleman 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.
     
  2. I'm ashamed to admit that I've given this story even one minute inside my "think machine" but why does Gary Coleman need a bodyguard if these situations are going to go down like this? Save the money for the lawyers.

    I thought this was going to be another thread about someone getting around the checkout line at Wal-Mart.

    I thought it was going to be about Dustin Pedroia and his new contract.

    Yes, as long as he's using the Toronto Yellow Pages and wearing those special blocks on his shoes.

    To be honest, I saw "Gary Coleman" and "bowling alley" and thought it was gonna have something to do with dwarf bowling. Fooled again!!
