LOS ANGELES (AP) — Former "Survivor" contestant Jonny Fairplay sued Danny Bonaduce, alleging battery and emotional distress after Bonaduce tossed Fairplay over his shoulder at an awards show.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also names the producers of the awards show, the Fox Reality Channel.

Attorneys for Fairplay and for Fox Reality Channel declined to comment. It was unclear whether Bonaduce had retained a lawyer. Attempts to find a phone listing for him or a representative were unsuccessful. An after-hours e-mail message sent to Bonaduce at the Los Angeles radio station where he works was not immediately returned.

Fairplay, whose real name is Jon Dalton, was presenting an award on stage at the Fox Reality Channel "Really Awards" on Oct. 2 when Bonaduce unexpectedly approached him on stage.

When Fairplay ran and jumped into his arms, Bonaduce tossed him over his shoulder. Fairplay hit the floor head first and was hospitalized for injuries to his face and mouth.

With Fairplay "on the ground and blood and broken teeth on the stage floor, Mr. Bonaduce proceeded to parade around the stage with pride," according to the lawsuit.

A video of the incident captured the sound of the audience booing.

Fairplay, 33, is suing for unspecified damages to cover medical expenses, emotional distress and lost earnings. He is also seeking punitive damages.

After an investigation, the district attorney's office decided not to press charges against Bonaduce.

Bonaduce did not intentionally injure Fairplay and his "actions fell within the realm of self-defense," Deputy District Attorney Jeffrey Boxer wrote last week.

Fairplay appeared in the 2003 CBS show "Survivor: Pearl Islands" and came in third.

Bonaduce, 48, was a child star on "The Partridge Family." He starred in the 2005 reality show "Breaking Bonaduce," and has recently co-hosted Adam Carolla's radio show.

What a fucking queer.

When you jump into a man's arms and start dry humping, WTF do you expect?

Lost earnings? I had no idea who that asshat was until I saw vid of Bonaduce tossing him on the internet. He should be paying Bonaduce for the publicity. Douche.

There ya' go.

Jump on a guy and simulate sex on his face - THAT'S the assault.

Countersuit.

Emotional duress for being homosexually assaulted on national television.

Does he really expect to win a lawsuit when there is video of him running accross the stage and assaulting someone?

What the hell are you supposed to do when some stranger jumps on you and starts dry humping you?

What career?

This lawsuit will mean smackdown #2 for him.

Had it been me, after tossing him over my shoulder I probably would have kicked him in the ribs a few times just to make sure the message was understood. As much as I think Bonaduce is a ass I see no problems with fucking up someone who does what Gayplay did.

OK. I watched youtube vid, and I lawl'ed. A lot.

I thought the article's explanation of the event was a bit lacking. The make it sound as though the audience was booing Bonaduce for tossing the guy, while the truth is they were booing Fairplay way before that. They also fail to mention the simulated humping done by Fairplay.

Careful, you'll get it turned into a hate crime...

Yup. When the District Attorney rules that it is self defence, Fairplay doesn't have a leg to stand on.


The jury ruled OJ was "not guilty", but the Browns have basically cleaned his clock in court.
Hopefully, this will not end like that, as the circumstances are much different.

That is as funny as his worthless career. Got what he deserved.

I wouldn't allow another man to jump on me and dry hump me.

Good on Bonaduce.
