8 Kid Stars Who Ended Up Behind Bars (PHOTOS)

By: Alex Blagg / December 11, 2009

On the heels of this past week’s (non) pandemonium over the self-outing of “Family Ties” TV mom, Meredith Baxter, comes the unfortunate news that her cute little TV son, “Andy”, portrayed by child actor, Brian Bonsall, was arrested for assault with a deadly chair.

Bonsall has suffered a string of drinking and fighting charges throughout his adult years, reminding us here at Celebuzz that as bad as today’s young stars can be, the fate of yesterday’s child actors who are now unemployed is often far worse, even downright criminal.

Check out our selections for the Top 8 Child Actors Turned Criminals in our Celebuzz photo gallery.
