Former child star Brian Bonsall
has been given two years probation after admitting an assault on his girlfriend.
The one-time Family Ties
star, 25, was also charged with false imprisonment and second degree assault - after his girlfriend told police he poured alcohol on her face while she slept, put her in a choke hold and threw her onto a bed earlier this year. The actor claims he pushed her in self-defense after she cut him with a knife.
However, Bonsall reached an agreement with prosecutors on Friday. He pleaded guilty to third degree assault but the other charges were dropped.
Bonsall's lawyer said the actor was back with his girlfriend and were in couple counseling.
