Lane Garrison on 'Today'Lane Garrison was a rising star with a regular role on the Fox drama 'Prison Break' in 2006 when he made the decisions that led to his vehicular manslaughter conviction in 2007. A teenager died in a Land Rover Garrison was driving while drunk. Garrison spoke of the incident on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) this morning, including his guilty plea.

Garrison held himself up as an example of the tragedy that can happen when someone drives drunk. He mentioned media coverage that quoted him complaining about jail and said that was not the full message: "The message was really, 'Hey, if you don't want to go through what I just went through and if you don't want a family feeling that pain that they just went through, then don't drink and drive."

Garrison pleaded guilty before being sentenced to 40 months in prison. He was released in 2009. "That was the first time I really became a man," said Garrison, "when I accepted responsibility."

Lane Garrison most likely to get a "Prison Break" -- UPDATE

by Varun Lella, posted Aug 3rd 2007 12:35PM
So, sue me -- please don't, I can't afford a lawyer -- but I couldn't help using the pun. Garrison, who plays David "Tweener" Apolskis on FOX's Prison Break, will undergo a 90-day evaluation to help evaluate an appropriate sentence for his act of vehicular manslaughter.

In late May, Garrison pleaded guilty to the manslaughter and linked alcohol charges that resulted in the death of a 17-year-old passenger and the injury of two teenage girls. Garrison was driving with a blood alcohol content of .20 (California's legal limit is .08).

lane garrisonLane Garrison faces prison time for a car crash that killed a 17-year old girl. Garrison, who played "Tweener" in 14 episodes of Prison Break, was apparently drunk when he crashed into a tree in December. Riding in his SUV with him were two 15-year old girls and a 17-year old girl, who died in the accident. Garrison is also being charged with injuring the other two passengers and providing them with alcohol. For all his infractions, the maximum sentence he could face is six years, eight months in prison.

Garrison is currently out on $100,000 bail and is banned from driving, drinking or visiting bars. Garrison's lawyer says a plea bargain is in the works, where the actor will "accept responsibility for his conduct."

Prison Break actor blamed for fatal accident - UPDATE

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 1st 2007 8:31AM
lane garrisonPrison Break actor Lane Garrison will likely be charged with felony vehicular manslaughter for an accident that killed a 17-year old girl last month. Beverly Hills police say that Garrison was high on cocaine and drunk when he slammed his SUV into a tree, killing his teen-age passenger. Two other 15-year old girls in the car were injured. Police say Garrison's blood-alcohol level that night was .20 percent, more than twice the legal limit, and they found a number of empty alcohol containers in his SUV.

Garrison, 26, played "Tweener" on Prison Break, but his character was killed off earlier this season. If convicted, he could face up to ten years in actual prison.

Prison Break actor involved in fatal accident

Lance GarrisonFormer Prison Break actor Lane Garrison's SUV struck a tree on Saturday night in Beverly Hills killing one of its passengers and injuring the others. Inside the SUV were two 15 year-old girls, one 17 year-old boy and Garrison, who played David "Tweener" Apolskis on the hit Fox series. (His character was killed off earlier this season.)

The teenage boy on board was taken to Cedars-Sinai following the accident, where he died. One of the girls was critically injured. Garrison sustained minor injuries. There's no word on whether alcohol was involved, who was driving or why a 26 year-old actor had a bunch of teenagers in his SUV in the middle of the night.

This isn't Lane's first SUV accident this year. In October, Garrison was caught by paparazzi outside of LA's Hyde nightclub after a far less tragic accident in which he crashed his Land Rover into a parked car.
