Former Prison Break actor Lane Garrison, who is currently on parole for manslaughter, reportedly won’t be charged for allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly.
As previously reported by RadarOnline, Garrison was picked up by police last weekend for getting into a physical altercation with Mattingly.
The alleged incident occurred in the lobby of her apartment complex in Beverly Hills.
Garrison is still in jail because the incident is a violation of his parole, which means he’s not eligible for bail. He’s been in the pen since last Saturday.
“The District Attorney has decided not to charge Lane because they didn’t have sufficient evidence to prove that he hit Ashley, even though the entire incident was caught on surveillance video. The two were arguing and Lane was attempting to get his cell phone back from Ashley, which she was holding. Lane gave an exhaustive interview to detectives, without his attorney, Harland Braun present. Lane contends that he never hit Ashley, it’s just not who he is,” a source said told RadarOnline.
Garrison’s life took a tragic turn in 2006, when the car he was driving struck a tree and killed one of his teenage passengers.
The actor pleaded guilty to the vehicular manslaughter charge and was released from state prison in 2009 after serving 20 months of a 40 month sentence.
In addition to jail time, the actor agreed to a financial settlement with the victim’s family.
