Former child star Gary Coleman and his estranged wife Shannon Price have each been in trouble with the law in the past for beating up on each other, Shannon left Gary after that last episode, but since they’re reunited, I’ve dubbed them “Bonnie & Clyde”… the poster couple for domestic violence.
In July 2009, Shannon was arrested in Santaquin, Utah for for domestic violence and disorderly conduct after she allegedly locked Gary out of the house and trashed their bedroom.
She pulled all the drawers out of Gary’s dresser and tossed them . . . then tipped the dresser over. She also upended his DVD stand, threw his clothes around and tore down shelves.
This past January, Gary was also arrested in their home state after police were called after yet another domestic dispute between the couple.
Gary has since faced severe health problems and reportedly has told friends and family that this time will be different:
Gary really thought he could die at any time and it (recent health crisis) made him realize how much he really loves Shannon. They’ve never been happier and all their friends are hoping their love will stick this time.
They haven’t fought at all and (they) bought a dachshund puppy to celebrate their fresh start. (source)
Damn shame what they did to that dog…
