Brian Bonsall Charged With Assault: Former 'Family Ties' Actor Hit Friend With Broken Stool

Posted: Updated:

BOULDER, Colo. — Former "Family Ties" actor Brian Bonsall has been charged in Colorado with second-degree assault after police say he repeatedly hit a friend in the head with a broken wooden stool.

Twenty-eight-year-old Brian Bonsall could face between two to six years in prison if convicted of the charge that prosecutors filed Friday. Police arrested Bonsall last week and he's being held on $7,500 bail in Boulder.

Police say Bonsall was also wanted on a warrant for missing a court hearing in 2007 on suspicion of violating bond conditions on another case. In that case, he had been sentenced to two years of probation for assaulting his girlfriend.

Bonsall played the role of the youngest Keaton sibling, Andy, on the 1980s NBC sitcom starring Michael J. Fox.
