Did 'Several Shots'

Before Fatal Crash

12/6/2006 2:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has exclusively learned that Lane Garrison drank "several shots" of Grey Goose vodka at a party before driving a Land Rover that crashed in Beverly Hills, killing 17-year-old high school student Vahagn Setian and injuring two 15-year-old girls. This contradicts the account of Harland Braun, Garrison's attorney, who told TMZ that the "Prison Break" star had consumed only one drink at the party, and that he doubted that Garrison was intoxicated when he took the wheel.

Five eyewitnesses from the party tell TMZ that Garrison arrived at the party with Setian and two women, whom he had met earlier at a gas station. They say Lane brought a bottle of Grey Goose vodka to the party and unveiled the bottle to the crowd with a flourish. The gathering was described by several attendees as a "kick back of around 30 people." Two of the eyewitnesses claim that Garrison took four or five shots of vodka. Two others claim they witnessed the actor throw back six or seven shots. Several eyewitnesses also claim Garrison offered shots to other partygoers and say photographs were taken of Garrison consuming alcohol.

Later in the evening, when the alcohol at the party was running low, the eyewitnesses say that Garrison agreed to drive out to buy more, and took Setian and two girls with him. About four hours elapsed, they say, before they became concerned and drove out to look for Garrison, Setian and the young women. After discovering the accident, they then drove to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where they learned that Setian had died.

Attorney Harland Braun tells TMZ that ultimately the results of Garrison's blood alcohol test could tell the story. The results of that test are two weeks away.

TMZ seems to be deleting the comments about how this kid was an illegal immigrant with an expired student visa. The family is mourning because they are going to be deported back to Mexico.

How come no one has touched on the idea that V could have been gay and was after Lane's sausage or vice versa? Did anyone actually see the car accident photos? No matter how bad the wreck you don't die in a car accident naked, cheese smeered all over your body, and your face in another man's lap. I'm no detective but something fishy was going on there.

it's only a matter of time until he holds a press conference to inform us all of his severe addiction to alcohol which is more than likely a result of being molested by Jessica Simpson's father.

do I actually believe Joe Simpson molested him?NO, of course not. but, do I believe this guy is enough of a douche to shoot for the defense fences with that one? ABSOLUTELY.

see you in jail, dickhead!

What the hell is he doing hanging out with teenagers anyway? Not that it would be cool for him to hang out with - and buy booze for underage kids in any circumstance it's especially bad that these were random kids he met at a freakin gas station!
