Lane Garrison, who primarily came into the spotlight after playing David ‘Tweener’ Apolskis, on the popular TV drama Prison Break, was recently charged with misdemeanor battery. The reason was that, he had allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend. The incident allegedly took place in the lobby of the apartment building, where his ex-girlfriend Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly resides. This wouldn’t be the first time that Garrison has had a brush with the law. Back in 2007, he was sentenced to 40 months jail time for pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter. He was found DUI; with a higher blood-alcohol level than is permissible by law, he was also charged for providing alcohol to a minor.
Garrison was ultimately granted parole in 2009 for good behavior, and has reportedly tried his best to clean up his act. Garrison once again stands accused of being on the wrong side of the law though, and if proven guilty, it is anybody’s guess how harshly the law would treat him this time round. What compounds the issue even more is the fact that, his actions if proven would constitute a parole violation. Given the circumstances, he has been detained, without bail since the time he has been arrested, which was on Sunday. If the charge of battery is proven against Garrison, he stands to not only pay a fine of $2000, but he would also be staring at a jail term of one year. This was revealed by the L.A. District Attorney’s Office. This wouldn’t be the first time his ex-girlfriend has charged Garrison with roughing her up.
He was accused of the same in February of this year, with Mattingly calling the cops on him. Luckily for Garrison, no charges were pressed against him that time. Meanwhile, there have been no comments from either Garrison’s attorney or anybody else from his end, regarding this whole issue. Garrison in the meanwhile, is slated to appear in the Beverly Hills Courthouse on 27th April at 8:30 a.m.
