“I’m just a Good Samaritan, I guess,” said Jarrod Clarke, who put up the $1,725 for Coleman’s release. “He just had a sad [mug shot] picture.”
Coleman was released at 4:43 p.m. Monday after 27 hours behind bars. Santaquin, Utah police arrested Coleman on Sunday after receiving reports of a “civil disturbance” at his home.
Once there, police found Coleman, 41, had an arrest warrant issued for him. Santaquin City Attorney Brett Rich said the warrant is related to a domestic violence charge filed against Coleman in the city justice court on Aug. 26. Coleman is expected to appear at a hearing in Santaquin Justice Court on Feb. 8, Rich said.
Clarke said he has never met Coleman but is a lifelong fan of “Diff’rent Strokes,” the television show that made Coleman a famous child actor.
