Lane Garrison caught a prison break of sorts.

The actor avoided more jail time by pleading no contest to misdemeanor battery stemming from his April 2012 arrest on suspicion of striking his ex-girlfriend.

Attorney Harland Braun says Lane was given credit for time served Los Angeles County jail following his arrest and sentenced to three years of probation.


He’s also required to attend 52 domestic violence classes and 52 AA meetings, perform eight hours of community service and pay $400 to the Domestic Violence Fund.

Lastly, per L.A. Superior Court Judge Elden Fox, Garrison must continue to stay away from his ex, Ashley Mattingly, the woman he allegedly hit.

Garrison served 18 months in prison for vehicular manslaughter for being behind the wheel in a DUI crash that left a Beverly Hills H.S. student dead in 2007.

He was arrested for battery six days before the end of his parole.
