Lane Garrison Is Released From Calif. Prison

Posted: Updated:
A California prisons spokesman says the former "Prison Break" actor was paroled and picked up from a facility in Tehachapi (tuh-HATCH-uh-pee), Calif., early Wednesday morning.

Garrison had been sentenced in 2007 to serve three years and four months after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter and misdemeanor counts of drunken driving and giving alcohol to a minor.

He was charged after a December 2006 crash in which Garrison rammed his Land Rover into a tree, killing a 17-year-old girl and injuring two others.

Garrison was sentenced to four years of parole and ordered to pay around $300,000 in restitution to the victims and their families.
