Lane Garrison, the actor who plays “Tweener” on Fox’s Prison Break and became a star after he crashed his SUV, killing a 17-year-old Beverly Hills High School student who was among his unlikely passengers, is expected to plead guilty this morning to vehicular manslaughter.
Which most likely means that he’ll soon have some time to plan a real-life prison break.
Garrison was at the wheel last December 2nd when his 2001 Land Rover SUV jumped a curb in Beverly Hills, and slammed into a tree. Along with the 17-year-old dead boy, two fifteen-year-old girl passengers were also hurt.
For his part, cops say Garrison had a blood-alcohol level of .20 and had cocaine in his system.
Garrison, who’s 26 (he turns 27 on Wednesday) and as a troubled teen lived with Jessica Simpson and her minister dad, supposedly met the kids at a convenience store and followed them to a teenage party.
His lawyer promised last month that Garrison would enter the guilty plea. He said Garrison is “fairly accepting. He realizes that he has to step up and take responsibility for what he did.”
Garrison has been free on bail. He could be sentenced to as much as six years and eight months in prison.
