Zachery Ty Bryan was arrested and charged with strangulation and coercion after his girlfriend alleged he beat her up.
The 39-year-old Home Improvement star was arrested last weekend and is set to be in court on November 20 and November 30 but was in court on Friday over the allegations made against him.
His girlfriend told law enforcement officers that over the last month, Bryan has become increasingly physically abusive towards her and on Friday last week, he allegedly punched and slapped her multiple times in the head and face before choking her to the point of feeling as though she was going to suffocate.
Law enforcement is saying she made the 911 call before Zachery disconnected the phone line and stood next to her when a dispatcher called her back – upon officers arriving at the scene, the alleged victim had swelling and bruising and blood was noted.
