Do you remember that baby-faced Andy Keaton? The wide-eyed cherub that adored his older brother, Alex P. (Michael J. Fox) on ‘Family Ties’?
The actor who played Andy could probably use a talking-to from his big bro right about now. Brian Bonsall was arrested a few days ago for hitting his best bud in the face with a bar stool. The 28-year-old actor had been wanted by authorities since July 2008 on a year-old warrant for a separate assault.
Apparently Bonsall and his pal Michael Trujillo were pounding down the cocktails when an argument broke out. Bonsall walloped Trujillo with a splintered stool but remembers nothing of the incident.
“Bonsall then said that he and Trujillo both are bipolar and like drugs,” according to the report. “Bonsall said that he takes a lot of drugs and sometimes those drugs make him forget things.”
Sadly, the actor has led a pretty aimless life post-“Family Ties”. He’s gotten arrested several times…once for assaulting a girlfriend. The ex-actor is facing a third-degree assault charge and being held on a pair of bonds totaling $7500.
