Watch Out For Gary, Paysonites

Normally I wouldn't bother with Gary Coleman. He lives around my hometown, and everybody knows more or less where he lives, but he likes his privacy and doesn't have much of a community presence. Besides, when you're an actor who's more famous for a catchphrase than anything, people don't exactly make a hajj to your house.

But when Gary runs a guy down in what amounts to my hometown, I'll naturally have to make a note of it.

PAYSON, Utah (AP) — 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.

The article also makes a statement on Payson's importance in the grand scheme of things:
Payson is 52 miles southeast of Salt Lake City.
Well, for the record, we also have a Wal-Mart.

Teach yourself Czech or Dutch or whatever with the following story:
L'acteur américain Gary Coleman, rendu célèbre pour avoir incarné le petit Arnold Jackson dans la série télé Arnold et Willy, a renversé un piéton avec son véhicule, après avoir eu une altercation avec le jeune homme un peu plus tôt dans un bowling.

Gary Coleman a échangé des mots avec un certain Colt Rushton, samedi aux petites heures, alors que ce dernier avait pris des photos de l'ancien enfant-star à l'intérieur du bowling, selon un policier de Payson, dans l'Etat américain d'Utah.
For the record, I'm sure this "Colt Rushton" was being a class-A prick; he has the right name for it. Now to go home and see if anybody knows him. Regardless, It's tough to be the sort of celebrity who everybody knows, but never gets any dinero.
