'Family Ties' Kid

New Mug Shot

Lacks Luster

2/19/2010 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained the newest, face piercing-less, mug shot for Brian Bonsall -- that adorable kid from "Family Ties" -- who was arrested today after allegedly failing a drug test.

Brian Bonsall
Authorities in Boulder, Colorado say the 28-year-old had weed in his system, a direct violation of his bond in an ongoing assault case. Brian's lawyer says the former kid star needs the green stuff for headaches -- but has no medical marijuana card.

Bonsall was already in court for an incident in 2009 -- in which he allegedly smacked a friend in the face with a bar stool. He plead not guilty to the assault charge.

But as you can see from the trio of mug shots, Bonsall is no stranger to trouble --he was arrested back in 2007 for allegedly beating up his then-girlfriend.

At least he took out the lip rings.

Oh yea, taking out the lip piercings definately improves his image...a giganic butterfly tattooed on your neck gives him a kinda sweet, boy next door appearance....BARF!

He violated his bond. Don't say it's only weed. He knew when he got out that he would probably have to give random urine tests and he failed. There's alot of people like this who aren't child stars..We don't know his story, therefore I don't feel bad. He's 28, he knows right from wrong.

This loser guy was hitting chicks. IMO he has lost his privlidge to smoke anything! He is in jail where he belongs...for hitting a woman! I bet the victims of his past violent and barbaric, behaviours are happy that he failed the drug test and is now in jail...

Damn I can only imagine what this guy has been through to do this to himself. He used to be so cute. It must suck being a child star.
