    Former child star Brian Bonsall, who played youngest sibling Andy Keaton on "Family Ties," was arrested in Colorado.

    Former "Family Ties" actor Brian Bonsall has been arrested again in Colorado, this time on a charge of using marijuana in violation of the terms of his release.

    Deputies handcuffed and led the 28-year-old from a Boulder courtroom Friday after he pleaded not guilty to an assault charge and a failure to report charge involving another case. Bail was set at $10,000.

    Bonsall's defense attorney says the actor needs marijuana for headaches and has applied for a medical marijuana card through the state.

    He is accused of repeatedly hitting a friend in the head with a broken wooden stool in December and of missing a court hearing in 2007 in another assault case.

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