Gary Coleman's wife was arrested Wednesday on charges of domestic violence.

According to records from the Utah County Jail, Shannon Price was arrested by Santaquin police and booked into jail on suspicion of domestic violence and disorderly conduct around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. She was released two hours later after posting a $1,200 bond.

A probable cause statement from the Santaquin Police Department details a "tumultuous" scene outside Coleman's residence when police arrived. According to the report, Price locked Coleman out of the home after an argument. When an officer confronted Price, she allegedly shouted expletives repeatedly. She allegedly told police she had ransacked Coleman's room while he was outside the home. Inside Coleman's room, officers reported several of the actor's belongings were thrown around the room, including clothing, his dresser and his DVD stand.

This is not Price's first connection with assault allegations. She and Coleman are currently named in a personal injury lawsuit by Colt Rushton, who claims the pair attacked him after he snapped pictures with his cell phone of Coleman at a Payson bowling alley.
