On Prison Break, Lane Garrison played a troubled teen often on the wrong side of the law. In real life, well, read that sentence again.

Growing up in Richardson, Texas, however, Garrison’s misguided ways landed him in the home of a minister: Crazy Joe Simpson. For almost a year, the young actor lived with beautiful, weird Simpson clan.

In light of recent incidents involving Lane, the rep for Jessica Simpson said: “She loves him and wishes him well during this difficult time.”

Garrison was the driver of a car involved in an accident last weekend that killed 17-year-old Vahagn Setian. Rumors are swirling that he may have been drunk at the time, similar to Rip Torn.

Earlier this year, Lane told People magazine about his adolescent days; he “stole everything” he could, including cars and stereos. At 15, after an abortive attempt to steal a jug of wine from a stranger’s garage, Garrison says his mom “slapped the crap” out of him and actually took him to a police station to scare him.

He lived with the Simpsons for a year after that. No word on whether or not he slept with Ashlee Simpson. We’ll assume he did.
