Police: Gary Coleman hit man with truck in Utah
As anyone who saw Marilyn Mansons video for Heart-Shaped Glasses knows, the 19-year-old actress is kind of going through a rebellious phase right now. (She and the singer, nearly 20 years her senior, have graphic, blood-soaked sex in the video). But she may come around. Drew Barrymore was into being a bad girl when she was 19, and look at her now: reigning queen of the romantic comedy. (LAT / AP)
The actress was a solid gold money-making machine as tween Lizzie McGuire, but her film ventures have mostly tanked. So unless her singing career takes off, young Duff seems to be heading down the Melissa Joan Hart path. She may keep working, but it will be in obscurity. (AP / Getty Images)
Best case scenario Lindsay Lohan ends up like Elizabeth Taylor, another child star whose operatic life played out in the tabloids. At least Taylor has her diamonds and the adoration of the gays. Worst case scenario, Lohan ends up like Dana Plato from Different Strokes. Dead. (Getty Images / Warner Bros.)
Life is looking promising for this young actor who came of age on the family television show Even Stevens. Leonardo DiCaprio came of age on a television show too. Could LaBeouf follow in DiCaprios footsteps? Only time and Martin Scorsese will tell. (Getty Images / AP)
Precocious and curly haired, Raven Symone grew up before our eyes on The Cosby Show and later on her show Thats So Raven. Shes currently pursuing a singing career, but if that doesnt work out we think she should look at Shirley Temples post acting career. Symone has enough presence to handle herself in all sorts of diplomatic endeavors. (LAT / File)
We can say for sure that after 2010, when the final Harry Potter film is completed, Daniel Radcliffe will never have to work another day in his life. What we cant say is whether hell even be able to work another day in his life. Mark Hamill has had a tough time of it ever since his iconic turn as Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” films. Will Radcliffe suffer the same fate? (Warner Bros. / Lucasfilm)

Actor Gary Coleman hit a pedestrian with his truck after arguing with him in a local bowling alley, police said.
Payson police Lt. Bill Wright said Colt Rushton and Coleman got into an argument in the early morning hours Saturday over pictures Rushton had taken of Coleman inside the bowling alley. He said the argument continued outside, and that Coleman hit Rushton and a car as he was backing out of a parking space.
Neither man was issued a citation, and Wright said it wasn’t clear whether Coleman hit Rushton on purpose. He said neither man was giving authorities much information.
“We’re currently trying to sort through those issues,” Wright told the Deseret News of Salt Lake City. “We’ve been able to establish there was an argument between the two, due to pictures Rushton wanted to take. He took some of Gary Coleman, and (Coleman) wasn’t happy about it.”
Rushton was taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries and released.
Neither Coleman nor Rushton could be reached for comment Sunday. Neither had a listed phone number that could be found.
Wright told The Salt Lake Tribune there are “indications” that alcohol was a factor in the accident. He was unavailable for comment Sunday.
Coleman, who starred in the television sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” from 1978 to 1986 as the character Arnold Jackson, pleaded no contest in California in 1999 to disturbing the peace after he punched an autograph-seeker he claimed insulted him.
Payson is 52 miles southeast of Salt Lake City.
