‘Home Improvement’ star Zachery Ty Bryan arrested for alleged driving under the influence

“Home Improvement” star Zachery Ty Bryan has been arrested in California for allegedly driving under the influence.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to USA TODAY that Bryan, 42, was arrested Saturday after La Quinta Sheriff’s Station deputies conducted a traffic stop at 2:01 a.m. on a vehicle suspected of being involved in a traffic collision. The deputies “observed indications of impairment” in the driver, Bryan, arresting him for driving under the influence with priors, the sheriff’s office said. He was booked into a Riverside County jail and is also facing a misdemeanor charge of contempt of court.

Bryan is scheduled to appear in court on April 23.

“Home Improvement” actor Zachery Ty Bryan was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

This was the latest arrest for Bryan, who played Tim’s (Tim Allen) son Brad on the classic sitcom “Home Improvement.” He was previously arrested for alleged domestic violence in 2020 and convicted on two counts before being arrested in another domestic violence incident in 2023. The Eugene Police Department in Oregon said in a statement in July that Bryan was booked in Lane County Jail with a charge of assault in the fourth degree after officers “received report of a physical dispute” between a man and woman.

In October, Bryan pleaded guilty to felony assault in the fourth degree after reaching a plea deal that included the dismissal of a second count of felony assault and a nearly two-year prison sentence. He was sentenced to a week in jail and 36 months of supervised probation. He was also ordered to have “no contact with the victim without the probation officer’s approval, treatment for alcohol/substance abuse issues at the direction of the probation officer, and no alcohol or drugs.”

Bryan’s attorney, John Kolego, told USA TODAY in October that he “decided to accept this resolution and admit that he recklessly caused physical injury to his domestic partner” in order to “get the help that the family needs and move on and not cause his family any more pain or trauma.”

In June, Allen discussed Bryan’s legal issues in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t know what’s going on with him,” Allen said. “Zach is a great kid who has grown into a complex man. All you can do is step aside and let somebody go through their process. At a certain point, he deviated from the guy I know to somebody who is reacting to situations that I had nothing to do with and can’t control.”
