Home Improvement alum Zachery Bryan has been arrested and charged for allegedly strangling a woman.

A spokesperson from the Eugene Police Department told PEOPLE that officers arrived at an Oregon home around 10:00 p.m. on Friday after receiving a call of concern from neighbors. Officers found Bryan “sitting outside an apartment” while the victim, a 27-year-old woman who has been “in a relationship” with Bryan, was at a neighboring apartment.

“An investigation found that during the dispute Bryan is reported to have assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and taken the victim’s phone from her when she tried to call 911,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

Bryan was then “taken into custody without incident” on charges of strangulation, fourth-degree assault, and interfering with making a report. According to online records, Bryan was booked at Lane County Jail on Saturday shortly after 1 a.m and still appears to be in custody.

Before his arrest, Bryan posted an Instagram photo that appeared to document a night out. “Good night,” he captioned the photo, in which he was seated on a couch next to four women.

Two weeks before his arrest, Bryan announced that he and wife Carly had split.“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 at the time.

“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,” he concluded.
