That's right America, coming this fall on Fox, the new reality show "Prison wrenchin' with Billy Lane." The above is purely satire, but now that it's in print, someone will jump on the proverbial wagon.
If you remember some months ago, we were jawing about Billy and his penchant for screwing up his life. It seems Billy is doing well after 4 months and is using his talents in prison to help the state of Florida as well as other inmates by working and teaching while assigned to the motor pool at Avon Park Work Camp.
If you remember, Billy was sentenced in August for driving under the influence in a crash that killed 56-year-old Sebastian Inlet Park ranger Gerald Morelock.
"It looks like he's using his skills to help the state of Florida," said corrections spokeswoman Jo Ellyn Rackleff.
Billy's also been able to resolve his other legal issues, including settling the civil suit filed by Erin Derrick, the female passenger in the truck that Billy was driving that night.
Greg Eisenmenger, who was Billy's attorney in the case was discussing a motion for a reduced sentence, with a claim that the Morlock family thought Lane could do more good using his celebrity status out of prison, but a judge denied the motion. So for now Billy's just going to have play it cool and keep on wrenchin'.
