Gary Coleman, Mug Shot

Utah County Sheriff's Office

UPDATE: While police responded to a "civil disturbance" at the Coleman home, Sataquin police now say the actor was not charged with any new crime, but was jailed because of an outstanding warrant for his failure to appear in court on a previous case "completely unrelated to the civil disturbance."

This is not shaping up to be a great year for Gary Coleman.

Just weeks after the 41-year-old former child star was hospitalized following a seizure, Coleman was jailed Saturday afternoon in Santaquin, Utah, following a 911 call for a "civil disturbance," E! News has confirmed.

While a spokesman at the Santaquin Police Department confirmed the bust, the officer would not give further details regarding the incident, which came after an anonymous emergency call.

"We are not sure who called it in," the spokesman said. "It could have been him or his wife or even a neighbor."

Following his hospitalization earlier this month, however, the actor had been willing to talk to E! News about the state of his marital union...

The tumultuous pair has made headlines for their domestic scuffles over the years, but Coleman said he and wife Shannon Price were trying to work out their issues.

"My wife and I are getting along great," Coleman said. "When you live with someone and it's a life term, lifelong kind of thing, you learn what makes that person tick. So I think I'm doing OK for a newly married husband. It's a work in progress. I'm not someone that gives up."

Coleman's latest arrest follows his wife's bust last July for suspicion of domestic violence and disorderly conduct in the same Utah town.

The duo, who married in August 2007, had already started divorce proceedings and made an appearance on Divorce Court in 2008. They had since reconciled…until Saturday's squabble.
