Former Family Ties cast member Brian Bonsall's latest arrest
would have made news even if he hadn't claimed that the marijuana in his system during a positive drug test had been used for medicinal purposes (despite the fact that he doesn't haven't the required license). After all, his last booking photo was such a brilliant image that we immediately inducted Bonsall into our Busted Former Child Star Mug Shot Hall of Fame
. But the most recent image is considerably more sedate, not to mention piercings-free -- which explains why TMZ's headline for its post on the bust reads, "Family Ties Kid -- New Mug Shot Lacks Luster.
Guess he'll have to try harder next time. And odds are good there will be a next time.
