EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Zachery Ty Bryan, the actor who played the oldest son on the long-running 1990s sit-com “Home Improvement,” has been arrested in Oregon. The Eugene Police Department says officers were dispatched to a North Eugene apartment Friday night on a report of a physical dispute. Police say they found 39-year-old Bryan sitting outside and his 27-year-old girlfriend at a neighboring apartment. Police say Bryan reportedly assaulted the victim, impeded her breathing, and took her phone away when she tried to call 911. Bryan was booked into Lane County jail after 1 a.m. Saturday and faces charges of strangulation and assault.  

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Police Bureau will make it easier to identify officers during crowd control events like protests in response to public feedback. KOIN reports the bureau will assign each officer a three-digit number that will be displayed on their helmets during events. Officers currently wear lengthy personnel numbers instead of name tags, which can be difficult for people to see or remember. The agency did not report any new arrests early Saturday due to overnight activities. Work on the three-digit number system for officer helmets is underway. The PPB said the project will be finished by Nov. 15.

DENVER (AP) — Roughly seven months after the coronavirus cut the ski season short at the height of spring break, resorts across the U.S. and Canada are picking up the pieces and trying to figure out how to safely reopen this winter. Resort leaders are asking guests to curb their expectations and to embrace a new normal while skiing amid a pandemic. That could mean skiing with face coverings, socially-distanced lift lines, no dine-in service, sharing lifts only with your group and no large gatherings for an apres drink. Resorts are trying to avoid a repeat of last spring, when many mountain communities were disproportionately affected by the virus.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who Oregon prosecutors say stopped breathing after officers used a stun gun on him has died. The Washington County District Attorney’s office said Friday that James Marshall died in the hospital two days after Forest Grove police stun gunned him on Oct. 7. Investigators have not yet released Marshall’s cause of death. Prosecutors say law enforcement had found Marshall waving a flagpole and causing a disturbance. Police say Marshall tried to grab an officer’s stun gun and accidentally discharged it into his arm. Prosecutors say an officer used the stun gun on Marshall’s back later. Four officers have been placed on leave as a result of the incident.
