Family Ties star arrested for assault again

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 7th 2009 8:40PM
The former Family Ties star has been busted again, this time for an assault he barely remembers.

Brian Bonsall, the actor who played little Andy Keaton on Family Ties, has been picked up in Colorado for assault. Police arrested him for smashing a bar stool over his friend while the two were drinking. Drugs may also have been involved since the police report said, "He and Trujillo both are bipolar and like drugs. Bonsall said that he takes a lot of drugs and sometimes those drugs make him forget things."

It gets worse. Prosecutors believe he violated his probation from his previous assault involving a former girlfriend and filed a warrant for his arrest, so now he could face serious jail time.

Ha, I thought I recognized the name. He got a Blank Check once as well... and a smoking co-star:

A lot of "former Family Ties stars" news lately... could it all be publicity stunts for a reunion?!?!?!

Next up, Micheal J. Fox will cause some kind of commotion on O'Reily's show saying he isn't conservative enough.

Then Justine Bateman is going to be connected romantically to Michael Gross.

Marc Prince will get in a high speed L.A. police chase after he realizes his legacy lies in playing a character on an 80's sitcom named Skippy.

This all culminates in a new, edgy Family Ties action thriller movie called Family Ties: Hanging Noose which will break all kinds of box office records.

The article should have ended with "Sha la lala".

I didn't see a mug shot from the last arrest--he grew up into quite the charmer, didn't he?
