'Family Ties' Kid

Busted in Bar Stool Brawl

12/7/2009 4:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1207_brian_bosnall_bn_mug-1Brian Bonsall -- who played Andy on "Family Ties" -- was arrested for allegedly hitting his best friend in the face with a bar stool ... at which point cops realized Bonsall was also wanted for another crime.

According to the Colorado Daily, cops were called to a Boulder, CO apartment three times -- where Bonsall and his friend Michael Trujillo allegedly got into a heated argument -- before they finally arrested Bonsall on suspicion of beating Trujillo in the face with a piece of a broken bar stool.

According to Trujillo, the two began arguing, Trujillo asked Bonsall to take a hike, and Bonsall went ballistic.

Bonsall claims he was so drunk he doesn't remember a thing.

The former child actor has been wanted since last year after failing to appear for a hearing stemming from a 2007 assault charge -- resulting in a bench warrant out for arrest.

Any guy with butterfly tats on his neck automatically has 'douche' written all over his face, thats why this p*ssy needs to use a weapon, his fists are larve. lol He's the typical "Boulderite" thats why the rest of CO hates Boulder, its full of racist whacked out fools. Get lost and go back to LA.

It seems like all these former child stars always want to rebel far from the "cute kid" they were known for. So many get tons of tattoos to show they are "hard". They paint themselves into a corner for the rest of their lives trying to be the polar opposite of their previous persona.

Something tells me this kid was the victim of the casting couch, made to do unspeakable things for a middle-aged greasy Hollywood producer, just to get the gig in a commercial. All the balled up rage is coming out now.
