Lane Garrison of 'Prison Break' fame will voluntarily surrender today at 130pm in order to be formally charged with vehicular manslaughter. The charge arises from his December car accident which killed his 17 year old passenger. The passenger was a male high school student named Vahagn Setian. At the time of his arrest, Garrison's blood alcohol level was .20 which is more than twice the legal limit of .08 allowed in California. Witnesses have also stated that Garrison was doing lines of cocaine and downed several shots of vodka before getting behind the wheel. Garrison was on the way to the store to get more vodka when the deadly crash occurred. Garrison faces a maximum of 6 years behind bars. Garrison potentially faced more time behind bars, but for some AWFUL reason, the DA chose to not charge Garrison with gross negligence. Honestly, I do not know what would ever constitute gross negligence if this doesn't. Bail will probably be set at $200,000.
