ONCE

ended its run, Todd bat­tled co­caine ad­dic­tion for sev­eral years into his 20s.

In 1988, he was ar­rested and tried for the at­tempted mur­der of Ken­neth Tex Clay, a Los An­ge­les drug dealer.

Prose­cu­tors ar­gued Todd had shot him while he was “high” but Bridges got OJ Simp­son’s at­tor­ney John­nie Cochrane to suc­cess­fully de­fend him.

How­ever, the spec­tre of court reared its head again in 1993, when Todd was in­volved in an al­ter­ca­tion with a tenant in his house af­ter a dis­agree­ment about un­paid rent.

Todd was at­tacked with a sword but re­tal­i­ated by stab­bing his as­sailant in the chest with a kitchen knife. The charges were dropped af­ter it was de­cided he had acted in self-de­fence.

Todd is the now sole sur­vivor from the main cast.
