Actor Lane Garrison was charged on April 26 with one count of misdemeanor battery for allegedly hitting his ex-girlfriend in the lobby of her Beverly Hills apartment on April 21, the District Attorney’s Office announced.
The arraignment for Garrison, 31, has been postponed to 9 a.m. on Friday at Beverly Hills Superior Court, as his attorney is trying to determine if he is on a parole hold. He is currently in custody, as authorities believe he is on parole for a 2007 vehicular manslaughter conviction.
According to Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Marks, Garrison allegedly struck Ashley Mattingly as the two were exiting an elevator in an apartment building in the 300 block of North Palm Drive. When witnesses allegedly approached the pair, Garrison ran from the building.
If Garrison is allowed bail, it will be set at $50,000 with a protective order that prohibits him from contacting the victim. If convicted, he faces up to one year in county jail and a $2,000 fine.
Garrison’s resume includes roles on the TV series “Prison Break” and the 2007 film “Shooter”.
