Actor could face up to six years in prison

“Prison Break” actor Lane Garrison was charged Thursday with manslaughter and drunken driving for a crash that killed a 17-year-old boy in his car.

The 26-year-old actor was charged with felony vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, felony driving under the influence causing injury to multiple victims, felony driving with a blood-alcohol level above the .08 percent legal limit causing injury and a misdemeanor count of furnishing alcohol to a minor.

He could face up to six years and eight months in prison if convicted.

Garrison was expected to surrender Thursday afternoon for arraignment at Beverly Hills Superior Court and prosecutors will recommend he be held on $200,000 bail, district attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison said.

Garrison was behind the wheel of a Land Rover that jumped a curb and struck a tree on Dec. 2. The crash killed Beverly Hills High School student Vahagn Setian, 17, and injured two 15-year-old girls who also were in the car.

Garrison is accused of supplying Setian with vodka, Robison said.

Police said Garrison was found to have a blood-alcohol level of .20 percent and cocaine in his system.
