The TV star was arrested for an alleged DUI, as well as a misdemeanor for alleged contempt of court. His bail was set at $50,000, plus an additional $15,000 fee for the misdemeanor.

Bryan was released on the same day as his arrest and he’s been given a court date of April 23.

Bryan has faced a number of legal cases in recent years. But in 2023, the actor argued that an incident that led to his domestic violence arrest got “blown out of proportion.”

The former child star agreed to take a deal and plead guilty to menacing and fourth-degree assault in February 2021 after a row with partner Johnnie Faye Cartwright in 2020.

Speaking about the bust-up, he told The Hollywood Reporter: “We got really loud. We were screaming and because we were in a town home that had (thin walls), everybody could hear.

“At the end of the day, (police) throw a bunch of counts at you because they ultimately want you to plead to something. I could’ve fought it … but that’s more stress and drama.”

Johnnie also voiced her support for the actor.

She previously told Us Weekly: “Trauma can bring struggles in many shapes and forms. It’s a horrible situation that’s going to be spun in so many ways. I’ve learned firsthand the truth will never align with what’s been put out there.”
