Home Improvement actor Zachery Ty Bryan is facing multiple cases after strangling his girlfriend following a night out in a club.
According to TMZ, the Home Improvement star went out at a club with his girlfriend before the arrest.
A neighbor, reportedly, called the authorities to inform them about a domestic dispute.
Meanwhile, the police report says that Bryan’s girlfriend herself revealed that they argued that night. After a few minutes, the actor suddenly wrapped his hands around her neck and strangled her.
His girlfriend further revealed that when she tried to dial 911, Bryan took her phone away from her. When she had the chance to run, she, reportedly, fled across their home to hide.
The authorities later arrested the 39-year-old actor in Eugene, Oregon.
Bryan received multiple charges, including strangulation and a felony. He also gained misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree assault and a charge for preventing someone from making a report.
Following the Friday arrest, the actor stayed under the Lane County Jail’s custody. As of the writing, it remains unknown whether an attorney already showed up to speak on his behalf.
It was also noted that hours before he put behind bars, he posted a photo of himself with four women inside a club.
