Tiger WoodsOne of my favorite new categories is our “Smooth Criminal” section of the EmployeeScreenIQ Blog.  This last week was a writers dream, so much content, so little time.

What would a background check on Tiger Woods and Brian Bonsall look like? Who is Brian Bonsall you say? More to come later.  Well, Tiger Woods would be pretty safe right now.  Fortunately for him, at this time, he has not really done anything illegal.  Ladies and Gentleman, it is not a crime to cheat on your wife!  (Even if its with 9 different females, at last count). What he does need to worry about are the hints at domestic violence the media keeps talking about.  Are any of these allegations true? Only time will tell!!

Family Ties Actor ArrestedNext we have Ex-Child Actor, Brian Bonsall, former Family Ties alumni!  Brian played Andy Keaton on the 80’s sitcom.  According to the Associated Press:

BOULDER, Colo. – Police say a former cast member of the 1980s television show “Family Ties” has been arrested for investigation of assault in Colorado.

Police said Monday that 28-year-old Brian Bonsall got into a fight at an apartment on Saturday and hit a friend with part of a broken wooden stool.

Bonsall allegedly told officers he had been drinking and didn’t remember what happened.

Bonsall played Michael J. Fox‘s little brother Andy Keaton on the sitcom.

He is being held in the Boulder County Jail and was due in court Wednesday. Jail records didn’t indicate his lawyer’s name.

Authorities say Bonsall was sentenced to probation in 2007 for assaulting his girlfriend. He was later accused of probation violations.

The former child actor lives in Westminster, Colo., about 20 miles south of Boulder.

Mr. Bonsall has a lot to worry about.  Employers will certainly find out about his list of indiscretions.  Background checks on him will certainly show his list of arrests and convictions!
