Zachary Ty Bryan, who played actor Tim Allen’s eldest son on 1990s sitcom ‘Home Improvement,’ was arrested on assault charges.
Bryan, 39, was arrested in Oregon and charged with strangulation and assault following an argument with his 27-year-old girlfriend.
Officers responded to a domestic dispute call at an apartment in Eugene, Oregon on Friday night. They found Bryan sitting outside the apartment. His girlfriend was hiding at a neighboring apartment.
The girlfriend told police Bryan assaulted her, impeding her breathing, and took her phone away from her when she tried to call 911, police said.
He was booked into the Lane County Jail after 1 a.m. Saturday.
On Oct. 1, Bryan announced his separation from his wife of 13 years, Carly Matros, whom he met in high school.
“Almost Fourteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
Bryan and Matros share four children – twin daughters Taylor Simone Bryan and Gemma Rae Bryan, born in 2014, and Jordana Nicole Bryan, born in 2016.
On March 18, 2019, they welcomed a son, Pierce Alexander Bryan.
It isn’t clear if Bryan’s 27-year-old girlfriend caused the breakup of his marriage.

Almost Fourteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage. As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority. We understand this news lends itself to public dialogue, but in the interest of our children and our family, we’re asking for privacy, compassion and love during this time. Thank you ?
