'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.

@ 29 Maggie - You do realize he is almost 30 and doesn't need his parent's permission anymore for anything, right?

He looks like a major lost soul, I can look into his eyes and see the child he once was crying out "help me."
People are loosing themselves. I wish some one would come along and turn young people on to the high gained by personal growth and development. Is there any one left who even cares about what is happening to this generation?

"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."
