    Former 'Family Ties' child star arrested

    March 30, 2007

    BOULDER, Colo. --Former child star Brian Bonsall, who played Andy Keaton in "Family Ties," was arrested on charges of assaulting his girlfriend, police said.

    Bonsall, 25, was being held in the Boulder County jail Friday on charges of second-degree assault and false imprisonment. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney, and a listing for an agent could not be found.

    Bonsall was arrested Wednesday after his girlfriend told police he poured an alcoholic drink on her face while she slept, put her in a choke hold and threw her onto a bed when she tried to leave, authorities said.

    Bonsall told investigators he pushed the woman down in self-defense after she cut his arm and face with a steak knife, but she denied that, police said.

    The woman was initially taken into custody but then released, police said.

    Bonsall, who lives in Boulder, appeared in three seasons of "Family Ties," the NBC sitcom that helped launch Michael J. Fox's career. He later appeared in episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and the 1993 film "Father Hood."

    Child stars.......America's future losers.


    Not to be mean but that seems to be the predominate pattern. Paging Adam Rich?

    It's actually big news when a former child star has some sort of a "normal" life and/or a showbiz career in their adult life.

    There was a reference to "the freshman senator from Ohio, Republican Alex P. Keaton" on Michael J. Fox's last episode of Spin City.

    Calling this kid a "Family Ties" star is quite a stretch. This kid couldn't have been more irrelevant on that show. Clearly he was the "jump the shark" kid.

    Put him right up there with Oliver on the Brady Bunch......both were a last ditch effort to help generate new storylines. And both were fucking useless.

    Hey, at least Oliver was honest about it, he told everyone right off the bat that he was a "jinx".

    Yeah, I wouldn't exactly call this person a star.

    A new show on Fox that would have the potential to run forever: "When Child Stars go Bad"

    I think Meredith Baxter was pregnant in real life, so they came up with the new baby storyline.

    They would have been much better off hiding her pregnancy.

    Maybe that's why he's in the trouble he's in now.

    You know, because he grew up so fast.
