"Family Ties" Andy Gets Probation

9/1/2007 10:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brian Bonsall, who played the youngest, blondest Keaton on the '80s sitcom "Family Ties," was sentenced to two years probation Friday in relation to a March assault incident.

Bonsall was arrested in Boulder, Colorado, after his girlfriend told police he poured an alcoholic drink on her while she slept, put her in a choke hold and threw her onto a bed. Bonsall counterclaimed that he pushed her in self-defense after she cut his arm and face with a steak knife.

Bonsall, according to his lawyer Paul McCormick, went through a 30-day rehab program and has been sober for over five months. He and his girlfriend have gotten back together and are in couples counseling.

...glad to see they're trying to work it all out. now, if they can only determine who the baby-daddy is, and settle the issue over who owns the sega, then it'll be clear sailing...
