Joan Prather in Big Bad MamaThe Woman Who Was Janet Bradford Drags a Cop

Joan Prather, a lovely brunnette actress best remembered for playing the wife of David (Grant Goodeve) on the classic ABC family series Eight Is Enough, was arrested last weekend after scuffling with the LAPD.

The 57-year-old Prather drove around traffic cones and ended up accidentally hooking a police officer to her car, which she continued to drive with the cop attached. The policeman was treated for a sprained arm, while Joan was booked on a felony hit and run charge. She has since posted $50,000 bail.

As Joan Prather negotiates her legal options, let us look reminiscence on her naked pre-Eight output, which includes Big Bad Mama, The Single Girls, and Smile.
