Taryn Manning: Orange is the New Black Star Arrested For Threatening to KILL Her Best Friend!

by at .

Taryn Manning plays Pennsatucky on the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black, and it now looks like the 32-year-old actress might need to be fitted for a brightly-colored jumpsuit in real life.

Manning was taken into custody yesterday after a judge determined that she violated a restraining order by threatening to kill her former best friend Jeanine Heller via text messages and social media.

Manning was arrested for assaulting Heller in 2012, and in the years since both parties have been found guilty of violating the terms of their mutual domestic restraining order.

While Manning and Heller's previous offenses didn't result in prosecution, this time could be different, as documented death threats can result in up to five years in prison.

In case you wondering, yes Taryn is related to NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eili Manning.

They're second cousins, which means between Taryn's arrest, Eli's performance on the field, and Peyton creepily singing to that chicken parm sandwich in the Nationwide ad, it's been quite a shameful year for the Mannings. 

Anyway, there's no word yet on when Taryn might stand trial, but the outlook is not good.

Watch Orange is the New Black online at TV Fanatic to see Taryn pretending to be a convict before she takes on the role in real life.
