Rich or Rehab: Little Andy Keaton

then20brian20bonsallDo 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.
