Charges Against Gary Coleman

Actor Gary Coleman has been formally charged with reckless driving and disorderly conduct stemming from an altercation at a bowling alley in Utah.

Police say the 40-year-old child star was backing out of the bowling alley's parking lot earlier this month when his truck hit 24-year old Colt Rushton and another car. Rushton was treated for minor injuries. Witnesses say Coleman became irritated when Rushton photographed him.

Rushton has filed a lawsuit against Coleman, seeking damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, and punitive damages.

Both charges against Coleman are misdemeanors.

    "DK", no it's not. Something so grand can never get worn out. It's not like you hear it everyday now, so when you do hear it, it's actually comical.

    It is not his fault that his foot wouldn't reach the brake pedal. Gee.
