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.

Celeb skater arrested for assault

kristy swansonMaybe she's just channeling Anna Nicole Smith* or something, but celebrity skater Kristy Swanson is in a bit of trouble with the mounties up in Canada. She has been arrested for allegedly attacking the ex-wife of her baby daddy, professional ice skater Lloyd Eisler. Lloyd and Kristy had a baby together back in February, which is about a year after they originally hooked up while paired up on Fox's short-lived show, Skating with Celebrities. Lloyd Eisler's wife was eight months pregnant at the time that he left her for Kristy.

People magazine is reporting that Kristy actually blames Eisler's ex-wife for the altercation, though Kristy is the one who was arrested.

*Kristy's most recent gig was a guest stint on Law & Order where she played a character who was based on Anna Nicole Smith.

**UPDATE Kristy is pressing assault charges against Eisler's ex-wife. Canadian police took photos of bruises and cuts on Kristy's body. It sounds like quite a brawl. And they're fighting over this guy.

HBO chairman Albrecht steps down after assault arrest

Chris AlbrechtAfter being arrested in Las Vegas last weekend, accused of assaulting his girlfriend, HBO chairman and CEO has decided to step down from his position.

Of course, that's what Time Warner, HBO's (and our) parent company, said in a statement. But according to a statement from Albrecht, the resignation was tendered at the request of his TW bosses. Right after the incident happened, Albrecht was supposed to take a leave of absence so he can continue alcohol treatments and work with AA that he had discontinued, but other incidents involving assaults against women were revealed, prompting TW to ask for the executive's resignation.

The network's COO, Bill Nelson, will assume Albrecht's duties on an interim basis until a successor is found. Albrecht had been with the network since 1985.

Family Ties star arrested for assault

BonsallBrian Bonsall, who played Andrew, the youngest Keaton on the NBC sitcom Family Ties, was arrested in Boulder, Colorado for assaulting his girlfriend. She told police that he threw an alcoholic drink in her face while she was asleep, choked her, and threw her onto a bed. Bonsall says it was all in self-defense, because she cut him with a steak knife.

"Well it's like we've been together, for a million years..."

This isn't the first time Bonsall has been in trouble with the police. In 2001 he was convicted of drunk driving, and in 2004 he was arrested for the same offense.

If you didn't watch Family Ties, Bonsall played Worf's son on Star Trek: The Next Generation and starred in the movie Blank Check.

Desperate Housewives: Sweetheart, I Have to Confess

mike and edie on desperate housewives(S03E06) This episode was absolutely delicious -- like the sushi you enjoy the half hour before you figure out that it was bad bad bad and that you are going to suffer for a long time (I am referring to rumors about next week's episode. But as I have not seen it yet, I will refrain from repeating them here).

Let me start by doing a bit of psychoanalysis on Susan. Is she just the type of woman who cannot stand on her own two feet without a man, or what? Her love for Mike is just over (snap!) the minute she finds him in bed with Edie? He is a recovering coma patient and Edie is manipulating him-- if Susan really loved him, I think she would cut him a little slack. But how could she know that he was about to start regaining his memory (and Edie's nurse costume would be the key!)?

Did Abdul invent assault story to avoid embarrassment?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 13th 2006 11:48AM
Paula AbdulAccording to Page Six in the New York Post, Paula Abdul may have made up her claim that she was assaulted outside an LA club a couple of weeks ago. Why would she do such a silly thing? Well, two witnesses told the gossip column that Adbul was thrown out of the party at Xenii because she looked "drunk" and "out of it." Others said she was "falling-down drunk." The assault story was made up, allegedly, to cover up her embarrassment at being thrown out.

Wow. If this is true, then Paula really needs to get help, and fast. It's one thing to act like a kook on AI, it's another to accuse someone of a felony just to cover up some personal embarrassment. Although it would have been funny to be at that party and see her be more "out of it" than she usually is.
