EUGENE – Zachery Ty Bryan, the actor who played the oldest son, Brad, on the long-running 1990s sitcom “Home Improvement,” was arrested in Oregon and faces charges of strangulation and assault.
The Eugene Police Department said officers were dispatched to a North Eugene apartment Friday night on a report of a physical dispute.
They found Bryan, 39, sitting outside and his girlfriend, 27, at a neighboring apartment.
Bryan reportedly assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and took her phone away when she tried to call 911, police said. The victim declined medical assistance.
Bryan was booked into Lane County jail after 1 a.m. Saturday.
Bryan appeared in more than 200 episodes of “Home Improvement,” a light comedy starring Tim Allen that ran throughout most of the 1990s.
