The Daily Camera is reporting that Brian Bonsall, who played Andrew Keaton on Family Ties, was arrested under suspicion of attacking his girlfriend. She said he "he poured an alcoholic drink in her face as she slept, put her in a choke hold and threw her onto a bed several times when she tried to leave." He claimed that he attacked her in self-defense because she came at him with a knife. The Boulder Police arrested both of them at first, but then released his girlfriend. Police are unsure how he got those bruises.
This is not his first run in with the police. According to The Daily Camera he had been arrested for DUI in 2004 and also had his driver's license revoked in 2001. His name is also mentioned in 4 alleged domestic violence reports between 2002-2004, but was never charged.
So sad to see another child actor having problems with the law.
And BTW how scary are those lip rings he is wearing, they almost look like he is wearing fangs.
