Gary Coleman allegedly hits pedestrian after an argument!

Actor Gary Coleman was involved in a car accident in Utah in which a 24-year-old pedestrian suffered minor injuries, after police say Coleman and the 24 year old got into an alleged argument.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Coleman, 40, was backing out of a bowling alley in a town about one hour south of Salt Lake City around midnight Friday when his truck hit another car and a pedestrian identified as Colt Reston, the Tribune quotes police Lt. Bill Wright as saying. Reston was taken to a hospital where he was treated for minor injuries, Wright said.

Witnesses told police the actor became irritated after Reston photographed him and the two argued in the bowling alley before moving outside.

Wright said neither Coleman nor Reston were cooperative at the scene and added that there were "indications" that alcohol was a factor in the incident. No citations were issued.

The "Different Strokes" actor made headlines earlier this year when he and his wife Shannon Price agreed to appear on the TV show "Divorce Court" in hopes it could help resolve marital issues.
