Gary Coleman’s bail posted by fan

Gary Coleman mug shotGary Coleman was stuck in jail with nobody to bail him out when a fan came to the rescue. The former Different Strokes child star was arrested Sunday on a a misdemeanour failure to appear warrant. Coleman spent Sunday night in jail when none of his family or friends came up with the $1,725 bail. However, on Monday, businessman Jarrod Clarke of Draper, Utah, who says he’s a fan, went to the jail to post bail. Clarke told GossipCop.com, “If you see his mugshot, I mean, what a sad face… To see that he was sitting in there — and he’d been there for 27 hours — and bail was only $1,700, I thought somebody probably ought to do something.” Clarke even offered Coleman a ride home — but Coleman’s dad showed up to drive him home instead. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    He still has fans? I never would have guessed! I can’t imagine posting bail for him, even his own family wouldn’t post bail! And that’s not a “sad” face to me, it looks more like a spoiled, angry face.

    Wow! Is this “fan” looking to get assaulted as well? The other article says that he’s already assaulted one fan and had to pay his/her hospital bills and tried to hit another fan with a pickup truck…third time is the charm! LOL.

    Okay, first of all, that face looks like, a little creepy–maybe he was considering murdering the photographer? idk–and second of all, does the guy who bailed him out have absolutely no life? Or Sense!
