Bryan, 42, was arrested in July after authorities were called regarding a physical domestic dispute between Bryan and an unnamed woman, Fox News Digital confirmed. He was then charged with two counts of assault in the fourth degree.

He pleaded guilty to felony assault in the fourth degree constituting domestic violent, and as part of a negotiated resolution which dismissed the second count of assault in the fourth degree, Bryan was only required to serve seven days in jail instead of 19-20 months in the Oregon Department of Corrections, Lane County Chief Deputy District Attorney Chris Parosa confirmed in a statement to Fox News Digital at the time.
