Actor Lane Garrison was released from prison early Wednesday morning after serving 20 months of a 40-month sentence in connection with a vehicular manslaughter conviction for a 2006 incident that left one teen dead and another one injured, authorities told

The 28-year-old, formerly of the Fox show Prison Break, was met by family and friends at about 3:45AM Wednesday as he left the California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi, California. While in custody, the actor participated in a drug-abuse program and served as a peer mentor to other inmates, according to officials. He received the early release based on "good-behavior credits."

The actor was originally jailed on Nov. 20, 2007, following the guilty plea in connection with the DUI crash in Beverly Hills. Police said the actor had cocaine in his system and a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent at the time of the incident. He agreed to a financial settlement with the victims' families last week. (Photo: Splash News)
