Taryn Manning's lawyer is lashing out against the claims that his client threatened her former friend, Jeanine Heller.
On Wednesday, Taryn was arrested for violating a restraining order after she allegedly made explosive threats against Jeanine, a violation which was later voided by prosecutors.

Manning's lawyer explained:
"The District Attorney declined to prosecute Ms. Manning and the arrest was voided. The allegation was false. It is unfortunate that additional false allegations by an individual convicted of violating orders of protection intended to protect Ms. Manning are facilitated by purported news organizations to perpetuate the harassment of Ms. Manning exponentially. Ms. Manning is a law abiding person who has respect for the law and the privilege of her profession. The fact that there are no criminal charges against Ms. Manning with regard to the purported allegations against her is a clear demonstration of her innocence."
In response to yesterday's arrest, the Orange is the New Black star complained on Twitter:
"Oh! That's what happened huh? Id say get the ALL the facts correct before any posting @TMZ or tell the whole story. Let's get it right!"
Woah, it sounds like Taryn is really angry over the whole ordeal!
While we'll never know what REALLY happened between these two, we just hope everything stays civil from this point on!
