Troubled actor Lane Garrison was back in a Beverly Hills courtroom yesterday, where he pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence charges.
On April 22, just days before his parole from a vehicular manslaughter conviction was set to end, Lane was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
He is accused of attacking his former girlfriend Ashley Mattingly. He was charged with battery for the incident and has been behind bars ever since.
Wednesday, his bail request was granted and set at $50,000; his next court hearing will be July 11. Look for him to lay low until then ... hopefully.
Lane maintains he was just trying to grab his phone from his ex during an argument, but surveillance video of Lane slapping Ashley begs to differ.
In February, Beverly Hills cops investigated an incident at Mattingly's apartment after she called 911 on him, but no arrests were made at that time.
In 2007, he was sentenced to 40 months in jail after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter for his role in a DUI crash that killed a 17-year-old boy.
