He was charged with strong-arm robbery. He reportedly confessed to police that he tried to "take the victim's purse to support his crack-cocaine habit."

Nearly two months later, he was busted again for stealing a Mazda and extorting the vehicle's owner by demanding $200 for its return. He pled no contest to a third-degree felony of grand theft and three misdemeanors.

Zachary praised Faith, 51, and her husband Tim McGraw, 51, for helping him change his life.

"I made my share of mistakes in the past, but Faith showed me that I could be a better person," he told The ENQUIRER in 2013. "I turned my life around, and I owe much of that to Faith and Tim. If it weren't for them, there's no telling where I'd be now. They're both amazing, down to earth people. Their love and support have been nothing short of extraordinary."
