PROVO, Utah (AP) -- One of Utah County's more famous transplants ran afoul of the law last week.

Provo police cited actor Gary Coleman for disorderly conduct after witnesses said they saw him having a heated discussion with a woman.

Passers-by told police his temper was rising and he was hitting the steering wheel of his vehicle. The witnesses were concerned and called police.

When officers arrived, Coleman, known for his role in the TV series Diff'rent Strokes, calmed down. He was issued a misdemeanor citation for disorderly conduct.

Coleman moved to Santaquin, Utah, in 2005, around the time he starred in "Church Ball," an LDS-genre movie filmed in Utah County.
