‘Home Improvement’ Star Arrested for DUI

One of the stars of one of the most popular TV shows of our day has found himself in trouble again.

Zachery Ty Bryan, 42, best known for playing Brad Taylor in “Home Improvement,” was arrested for a DUI.

The arrest took place in La Quinta, CA.

Trouble Again

Bryan is no stranger to legal problems, having his first real run-in with the law in 2020 on domestic charges.

At the time, he was facing allegations of having strangled his then-girlfriend, which eventually led to a guilty plea for menacing and fourth-degree assault.

Then, in 2023, Bryan was charged in another domestic case, facing felony assault charges.

Again, he pleaded guilty to fourth-degree felony assault and wound up spending seven days in jail.

Now, on Saturday morning, he was arrested and charged with a suspected DUI. It is unlikely he will make it out of this unscathed, as he already has several DUIs on his record.

Additionally, he was charged with contempt of court.

Bryan started his acting career in 1989, with “Home Improvement” being his big break in 1991.

After “Home Improvement” went off the air, he mostly paid the bills with TV appearances and some minor roles in movies.

He had a resurgence of sorts with “The Guardians of Justice,” landing the recurring role of Mike in the series, but the show only aired for one year.

Some of his other more notable credits include “Family Law,” “ER,” “Boston Public,” “Smallville,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Burn Notice.”

For movies, he has had roles in “The Game of Their Lives,” “Code Breakers,” and “Thor: Hammer of the Gods.”

This, sadly, seems to be the norm more often than not for childhood stars, as they fail to reach the celebrity status anticipated, then go down this rabbit hole of abusive behavior, both to other people and themselves.

It would not be a surprise at all to hear that Bryan is given a sentence of substance and winds up doing a few years behind bars after this latest DUI.
