He got a real prison “break” when his lawyer engineered a deal that sprung him from jail because of good behavior credits earned.
Now, RadarOnline.com can report that actor Lane Garrison — who once starred in the FOX drama Prison Break — checked into the Tarzana Treatment Center Wednesday, only hours after his release from prison.
Garrison — who was sentenced to three years and four months in prison for a deadly drunken driving accident – was granted early parole after spending only a year and a half at the California Correctional Institution in Tehachapi California.
Garrison served the time after pleading guilty to a series of charges — including vehicular manslaughter — after a December 2006 accident in which he rammed his Land Rover into a tree, killing a 17-year-old Beverly Hills High student and injuring two teenage girls.
Garrison was legally drunk at the time of the accident, and had given alcohol to the minors.
He participated in a substance abuse program while in prison, and will continue treatment now that he’s been released.
Garrison — who was ordered to serve four years’ parole — has been ordered to pay about $300,000 in restitution to the victims and families.
A source close to Garrison tell RadarOnline.com that if the Prison Break star successfully completes in-patient rehab, his parole time will be cut in half.
