On this week’s Very Special Episode of Home Improvement, The Hollywood Reporter is digging up a lot of dirt on Zachery Ty Bryan, who played oldest son Brad Taylor. Bryan has apparently been tangled up in a lot of untoward business in recent years (among other odd details, he plagiarized Armie Hammer’s divorce announcement, the least and most petty of his misconduct).

But he’s also faced legal trouble, having faced charges of domestic violence and driving under the influence and accusations of duping investors into a crypto scam.

“I don’t know what’s going on with him,” laments Bryan’s TV dad Tim Allen to THR. “Zach is a great kid who has grown into a complex man. All you can do is step aside and let somebody go through their process. At a certain point, he deviated from the guy I know to somebody who is reacting to situations that I had nothing to do with and can’t control.”

He did have something to do with turning Bryan into a child star, which is historically a corrupting factor.

He downplays the domestic violence charges (he is still involved with the

Bryan tried to address many allegations against him with the THR feature, defending himself against allegations of fraud and detailing his domestic violence arrest. “What people don’t understand is that you take risks. Nothing is for sure. It’s the same with movie investments and everything else, you lose or you win,” Bryan said in reference to the fraud allegations before hopping to the topic of his arrest. “We didn’t even really get that physical. We got really loud. We were screaming and because we were in a townhome that had [thin walls], everybody could hear.

“At the end of the day, [the police] throw a bunch of counts at you because they ultimately want you to plead to something. I could’ve fought it… but that’s
