Danny Bonaduce May Face Battery Charges

by at . Comments

Danny Bonaduce is being investigated for battery after tossing ex-Survivor contestant Jonny Fairplay over his shoulder during an award show Tuesday.

Jonny Fairplay filed a report Wednesday claiming his teeth were knocked out during the incident at the FOX Reality Really Channel awards held at the Hollywood club Boulevard3, according to the Associated Press.

Police received the battery report around 2 a.m. at a Hollywood hospital where Fairplay was being treated, Officer April Harding told the AP.

"He had one tooth broken, another tooth missing from his gum line and two other teeth that were loose," she said.

During the show, Fairplay was being jeered onstage when Danny Bonaduce came up and said into the mic, "They're booing because they hate you."

Jonny Fairplay, a wrestler who came in third Survivor: Pearl Islands in 2003, was criticized by viewers for having lied about the death of his grandmother in order to win sympathy from other competitors.

In a video clip of the incident (see below), Fairplay can be seen jumping into Bonaduce's arms, which he says was just a hug. In response, Danny Bonaduce tossed Fairplay over his head and onto the floor. Jonny Fairplay then got up and ran offstage while holding his hand over his mouth.

Later, Danny Bonaduce told TMZ that Fairplay "started to throttle me," and that he only threw him to halt the attack. He added, "I'm sorry he got hurt."

For his part, Jonny Fairplay told the site that he underwent two and a half hours of dental surgery and still needs additional work. Here's a video of the incident:
