Family Ties actor BRIAN BONSALL was charged with drink driving on Friday (28MAY04) after police saw someone vomit out the passenger side window of his car in Colorado, America.

Bonsall - who played ANDY KEATON in the '80s comedy series which helped launch Michael J Fox's career - was arrested in the early hours, and when quizzed by cops on how much he had to drink, he responded, "Plenty."

Police say a subsequent blood test showed Bonsall, who lives in Boulder, Colorado, had "excess alcohol content".

It's not the first time Bonsall has been in trouble with the law - in 2001 he was convicted of drunken driving and his license was suspended.
