Former "Family Ties" actor Brian Bonsall has been sentenced to two years of probation over a fight with a friend in Colorado last year.
The 28-year-old pleaded guilty Thursday in Boulder to felony menacing and third-degree assault. The menacing charge won't appear on his record if he stays out of trouble for two years.
Bonsall also pleaded guilty Thursday to violating terms of his probation stemming from a 2007 assault on his girlfriend and was sentenced to five days in a work-release program and 40 hours of community service.
Bonsall had tested positive for marijuana. His attorney told a judge Bonsall has substance abuse issues.
Bonsall played the youngest son, Andy Keaton, on "Family Ties," starring Michael J. Fox.
