EUGENE, Ore (AP) – Zachery Ty Bryan, an actor who played his eldest son in the long 1990s sit-com Home Improvement, has been arrested in Oregon and charged with strangulation and assault.
The Eugene Police Department reported that officers had been sent to North Eugene’s apartment on Friday night after reporting a physical dispute. They found 39-year-old Bryan sitting outside and his friend (27) in a neighboring apartment.
Bryan is reported to have attacked the victim, prevented her from breathing and confiscated the phone when she tried to call 911, police said. The victim refused medical attention.
Bryan was admitted to Lane County Jail after Saturday at 1 p.m.
The message left with a possible Bryan agent was not returned immediately. It was not immediately known whether he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
