“Home Improvement” star Zachery Ty Bryan is out on bail following his arrest in Oregon on charges he choked his girlfriend during an argument, a report said Monday.
The 39-year-old actor who played Tim Allen’s oldest boy Brad Taylor on the hit ABC sitcom was released Saturday on $8,500 cash bail after spending the night in Lane County Jail.
Bryan was issued a no-contact order, requiring him to stay away from his alleged victim and not reach out to her in any way, the report said.
The girlfriend alleges that Bryan squeezed her throat with his hands during an argument in an apartment in Eugene on Friday night.
Cops were called to the apartment complex by neighbors; arriving officers found Bryan sitting outside and the girlfriend hiding at a friend’s apartment nearby.
The woman alleged that Bryan attempted to stop her from calling 911 by grabbing for her phone, before she was able to get away to her pal’s place.
Bryan was arrested without incident and charged with strangulation, fourth-degree assault and interfering with making a report, according to the outlet.
He’s scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
