‘Prison Break’ Actor Sentenced For Hitting Ex-Girlfriend

lane-garrisonBEVERLY HILLS — Actor Lane Garrison was ordered today to undergo 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings as part of three years probation on his plea of no contest to misdemeanor battery on a former girlfriend last year.

The former ‘Prison Break’ actor must also perform eight hours of community service and pay $400 to the Domestic Violence Fund.

Although sentenced to 74 days in jail, Garrison was given credit for the time that already was served, the prosecutor said.

Garrison, 32, was arrested by Beverly Hills police back in April 22, 2012, a day after he was accused of hitting the former girlfriend as the two were getting off an elevator in an apartment building.

When witnesses approached, Garrison fled, authorities said.

Garrison served 18 months for felony vehicular manslaughter after a drunken crash in 2006 that killed a high school student who was riding in his car.

He was on parole at the time of the domestic violence incident.
