Home Improvement Star Zachery Ty Bryan Arrested For Suspected DUI Near Palm Springs

Home Improvement Star Zachery Ty Bryan Arrested For Suspected DUI Near Palm Springs

Former child star Zachery Ty Bryan has been arrested on suspicion of DUI after police pulled him over early on Saturday in a small town outside Palm Springs, California.

The 42-year-old played Brad Taylor on the Tim Allen-led sitcom Home Improvement for eight seasons through the 1990s. More recently, though, he has been in the news for notably negative reasons. And now, he’s dealing with allegations of yet another run-in with the law.

Per TMZ, Bryan was pulled over by cops in the small desert town of La Quinta on Saturday morning. La Quinta is a few miles southeast of Palm Springs, and a couple miles west of Coachella. Cops there say they conducted a traffic stop just after 2:00 a.m. local time Saturday on a car they suspected of being in an accident.

When they spoke to the driver — who they later identified as ZTB — they determined he allegedly showed signs of impairment. So, they placed him in handcuffs and hauled him off to jail. There, he was booked on charges of driving under the influence with three or more priors — a felony! He was also charged with contempt of court. He was released hours later. Now, that outlet notes his next court date is set for April 23.

Like we alluded to up top, it’s been an unsettling few years for Bryan. He was arrested on charges of domestic violence in October of 2020, then re-arrested on other domestic violence charges after another alleged incident in July of 2023. He ended up pleading guilty to menacing and fourth-degree assault in that 2020 case. Then, following the 2023 incident, he again pled guilty to fourth-degree assault and served a seven-day jail sentence.

He also made unwanted headlines after straight-up plagiarizing Armie Hammer‘s public divorce statement following his first domestic violence arrest, and then defending that weird plagiarism when called on it a couple years later. So… yeah.
