Actor Lane Garrison was released from jail Friday after spending more than two months behind bars following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence.

The 31-year-old posted $50,000 bail and was released.

Garrison was arrested April 22 after allegedly hitting his ex-girlfriend Ashley Mattingly, and has remained in custody since then because he's on parole.

The former Prison Break star was convicted of vehicular manslaughter back in 2007; He pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence last month.

He could spend up to a year behind bars, not to mention even more trouble if a judge determines that the charge was a violation of his parole terms.

His next court hearing is scheduled for July 11.

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.

Lane Garrison has just been legally ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, which should not be a huge issue as he's in jail. 

The actor allegedly slapped Ashley in the face last month during a argument at her apartment building, leading to his arrest for battery last month.

He's will plead not guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence at his court hearing, which was pushed back due to questions regarding his parole status.

Lane is currently on parole stemming from his 2007 vehicular manslaughter conviction, and has remained in custody on a parole hold since his arrest.

Lane's parole was supposed to end last Saturday, but his arrest may jeopardize that. The judge conditionally set bail at $50,000 for the troubled star.

He maintains he was only trying to grab his phone (see Lane Garrison surveillance video) and that he never actually hit is ex. Police aren't buying it.

His arraignment has been rescheduled for Friday.

Actor Lane Garrison has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence following his alleged attack on ex-girlfriend Ashley Mattingly last week.

While it appeared Lane would be cleared as recently as mid-week, the L.A. County District Attorney filed the charges against him late Thursday.

Based on surveillance video which appears to show Lane slapping Ashley Mattingly in the face last Saturday, the D.A. felt he had a case to make.

Garrison insists he did not hit his ex, and says the tape helps his case.

Lane's lawyer says he was merely reaching for his phone at her Beverly Hills apartment and it was not a slap, but evidently the D.A. begs to differ.

Garrison is being held without bail because he's on a parole hold. He was convicted of vehicular DUI manslaughter back in 2007 and went to prison.

If convicted of domestic violence, he faces up to a year in jail, which is very unlikely, however, he could do even more time if his parole is violated.

That prospect is much more likely. Stay tuned.

Lane Garrison has dodged a legal bullet and won't be charged for allegedly slapping his ex-girlfriend, Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly, according to reports.

Garrison was arrested last weekend after an altercation with Mattingly in the lobby of her apartment complex in Beverly Hills, and he remains in jail.

The former Prison Break star isn't eligible for bail because he's still on parole for vehicular manslaughter, which was supposed to end this Saturday.

Right now, it looks like he'll soon be in the clear on all accounts.

"The District Attorney has decided not to charge Lane because they didn't have sufficient evidence to prove that he hit Ashley," said a police source.

Even though the entire incident was caught on surveillance video, Lane gave an exhaustive interview to detectives and denied ever hitting Ashley.

"Lane contends that he never hit Ashley, it's just not who he is," said the source, adding that he was simply trying to get his phone away from her.

If you watch the tape closely, Lane's explanation is plausible, and he was apparently very convincing during long sit-downs with police detectives.

For his future, that's a very good thing.

Lane Garrison's lawyer said today that his client will not be charged with felony domestic violence for allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly.

Yet, anyway.

Harland Braun says he spoke with the D.A. Tuesday and was told prosecutors don't have sufficient evidence right now to file a case against Garrison.

That could change, however, as the investigation continues. Lane's case remains under review and charges stemming from his arrest still could be filed.

There's also the matter of Garrison's 2007 DUI-manslaughter conviction.

Braun he is getting in touch with the parole board to see if the department will take action against the former Prison Break star for his role in this case.

Even though he hasn't been charged with domestic violence, Lane is currently under a parole hold in Beverly Hills jail while that matter is addressed.

Lane's former girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, claims he attacked her Saturday night and says the surveillance video shows the alleged attack go down.

Braun says the surveillance video is deceiving and it actually does NOT show Lane striking Ashley, but merely trying to grab his phone back from her.

Lane Garrison, who was arrested for domestic violence on Saturday, says the surveillance video of him apparently slapping his ex proves ... that he did not.

Lawyers.

The actor and his ex-girlfriend got into a verbal argument that turned physical and the surveillance video (below) showed what appears to be Lane Garrison slapping Ashley Mattingly's face hard, which he told cops never happened.

He still says that, and here's why:

Lane told Beverly Hills detectives that what really happened was Ashley grabbing his phone and him reaching to grab it back from her. No slap at all.

Lane says he ended up grabbing Ashley Mattingly's cell phone, not his own ... and that's when she threw his phone against the wall and smashed the thing.

He says when he walked out, he childishly threw her phone in retaliation. If you look at the video closely, Lane Garrison's scenario is at least plausible.

He also claims he has text messages from Ashley that are incriminating and that she didn't want him disclosing - hence the freakout over the phone.

Garrison, who is still on parole for his manslaughter DUI conviction, is still being held in connection with this case and a possible parole violation.

A new surveillance video obtained by TMZ shows Lane Garrison slapping Ashley Mattingly across the face after he waited for her outside her apartment.

Lane was arrested for domestic violence Saturday, but denied hitting his ex, saying he put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair, and left.

Not exactly the case, according to the surveillance video:

The former Prison Break star claimed that he ran into his ex while visiting someone else's apartment, too ... but he appears to be sitting outside waiting for her.

When Ashley drives into the building's garage, Lane is seen stumbling as he runs after her. They are then seen walking into the building together.

Clearly arguing as they get into an elevator, Ashley seems to be asking Lane to leave, but when he refuses, she gets off ... and all hell breaks loose.

Police arrested former Prison Break star Lane Garrison was arrested without incident after police responded to a domestic violence complaint against him over the weekend. He's currently being held on $50,000 bail.

The alleged victim was Garrison's ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly.

Garrison says he did NOT hurt his ex, however. According to his attorney, Harland Braun, Garrison went to her Beverly Hills apartment building to dog sit for his acting coach, who happens to live in the same building on the third floor.

As he went to leave, he ran into Ashley in the lobby.

Braun says Garrison told him the two began arguing about the failed relationship, and Ashley started screaming and threw Lane's cell phone against the wall.

Braun claims that Lane then put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair, and then left. Lane says he did not harm Ashley Mattingly at any point.
