Gary Coleman settles Utah man’s injury lawsuit
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – An attorney says a personal injury lawsuit against actor Gary Coleman and his wife over an incident at a Utah bowling alley has been settled.
Dustin Lance, the attorney for Colt Rushton, says his client’s suit against Coleman and Shannon Price was settled within the last 30 days. Court records show the suit was dismissed Tuesday.
Lance says he can’t discuss the terms of the settlement.
Rushton sued Coleman over a September 2008 incident in which the actor allegedly hit Rushton with his truck in a Payson bowling alley parking lot after an altercation over photos.
In December 2008, Coleman pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from the incident and was ordered to pay a $100 fine.

‘One Tree Hill’ actor Antwon Tanner gets prison
NEW YORK (AP) – An actor from the popular TV drama “One Tree Hill” will spend three months in prison for dealing in stolen Social Security numbers.
A Brooklyn judge ordered Antwon Tanner on Wednesday to report to prison on April 30. He’ll serve five months in home detention after he’s released.
Tanner is known for his TV role as a high school basketball star-turned-coach. He also appeared with Samuel L. Jackson in the 2005 movie “Coach Carter.”
He admitted selling more than a dozen Social Security numbers for $10,000 to an undercover agent. His lawyer blamed it on “stupidity.” Gregory Watts said Tanner suffered financial reversals and lost a $1-million house in California to foreclosure.
