UPDATE: The California Department of Corrections has confirmed the relocation is a done deal.
"Inmate Garrison was transferred to the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in Corcoran (CSATF). It is the same prison Robert Downey Jr. was housed in," says department spokeswoman Terry Thornton. "I cannot go into the reasons for the transfer, but the transfer is for the benefit of the inmate."
The trials and tribulations of Lane Garrison continue.
Despite reports of good behavior and a possible early release, E! News has exclusively learned that the former Prison Break actor was transferred from a medium-security facility to tougher digs, his sixth new home and ninth transfer since being locked up for vehicular manslaughter.
Garrison, called a "model inmate" by a prison insider, was recently moved from Golden State Correctional Facility near Bakersfield, Cailf., to the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in Corcoran, a medium/maximum-security lockup adjacent to Corcoran State Prison, which is currently home to Charles Manson and Bobby Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan.
