Lane Garrison Charged with Misdemeanor Battery

David Livingston/Getty Images for Sofitel(LOS ANGELES) -- Actor Lane Garrison was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery on Thursday for allegedly slapping his ex-girlfriend in the lobby of her Beverly Hills apartment on Saturday, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.

The charge comes after a witness came forward saying they witnessed the altercation between Ashley Mattingly and the former Prison Break star.  It also comes after Garrison maintained that surveillance footage of the incident was "misleading" and that the 31-year-old actor was simply trying to get his cellphone back.

Garrison will head to a Beverly Hills court on Friday to be arraigned.  He is currently being held without bail because this latest charge violates his parole.  The actor is on parole for a 2007 vehicular manslaughter conviction.

If convicted, Garrison faces up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

TMZ reports that it also appears that Garrison tosses Mattingly's cellphone into the street before leaving the scene.

It's difficult to get a good look at the man's face for most of the video, in part because he is wearing a white cap.

Garrison's attorney had contended to TMZ that Garrison was at the apartment building to walk his acting coach's dog, and that Mattingly may have been intent on getting her ex arrested.

Garrison, who spent 18 months in prison for DUI and vehicular manslaughter in connection with a fatal car crash, is being held on $50,000 bail.

Speaking to TMZ on Monday, Mattingly alleged that Garrison has assaulted her in the past, including a few months ago.  She provided pictures to the website of her with marks on her body, allegedly caused by Garrison.

However, Garrison reportedly told detectives on the case that the video shows him not reaching out to strike the woman, but to grab his cellphone back from her.  He told cops she was trying to destroy evidence of "incriminating" texts she had sent to him.
