Danny Bonaduce: Fan bites ‘Partridge Family’ actor at Wash. state casino

- Associated Press - Monday, October 1, 2012

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Former child TV star Danny Bonaduce says a crazed fan bit him during an event at a Washington state casino.

The former "Partridge Family" actor told the News Tribune of Tacoma that the woman asked him if she could kiss him and then sank her teeth into his cheek for about a minute until others pulled her off.

Mr. Bonaduce, who works these days as a radio DJ in Seattle, said the woman was taken into custody Friday, but he doesn't plan to press charges.

His face had a bright red mark a day later. He said that what he was thinking during the attack was "Bath salts," he said, referencing a designer drug linked to bizarre and violent behavior in users.

Mr. Bonaduce's wife, Amy, said her husband was treated with antibiotics.
