In 1991, a brand-new show hit the ABC airwaves, and it was a hit. That show was called Home Improvement, and it starred Tim Allen as Tim Taylor, a man who ran his own show called Tool Time. In addition to starring in his own show, Tim was a husband to Jill, and the father of three rambunctious boys — Brad, Mark, and Randy. Tim’s sons were played by Zachary Ty Bryan, Taran Noah Smith, and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, respectively.

A lot has happened in the 25 years since Home Improvement ended. Sadly, for one actor, things have not exactly been going in the right direction.

On Saturday, February 17, actor Zachery Ty Bryan — who played eldest brother Brad Taylor — was pulled over by police officers in La Quinta, California. He was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence. He was also reportedly charged with a misdemeanor, contempt of court. His total bail was set at $65,000, which was paid and he was released the same day.

Sadly, this is not the first time that Bryan has found himself behind bars.

On July 28, Bryan was arrested by the Eugene Police Department in Eugene, Oregon on charges of fourth-degree felony assault, third-degree robbery, and harassment. Bryan pleaded guilty to those charges and was sentenced to serve seven days in jail. In a statement released through his lawyer, Bryan admitted that he “recklessly” caused injury to his “domestic partner”, with whom he shares three children.

In 2020, Mr. Bryan also had some legal trouble and was sentenced to 36 months of “bench” probation for strangling a woman. Bryan later confirmed that the woman was his partner, Johnnie Faye Cartwright, the same woman he is alleged to have assaulted last summer. Bryan took the bench probation in lieu of being sent to jail.

Mr. Bryan’s court date for his recent DUI arrest has been set for April 23. We do not know if he was on any kind of probation during the time of his latest arrest.
