Cops: Garrison Drunk & Coked Up During Crash

1/31/2007 8:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lane GarrisonBlood tests have revealed that Lane Garrison had "more than twice the legal limit" of alcohol in his system and was under the influence of cocaine during the fatal crash that killed a 17-year-old boy in December, this according to police.

A spokesman for the Beverly Hills Police Department announced today that his department has recommend that the L.A. County District Attorney file a felony charge of gross vehicular manslaughter against the "Prison Break" star.

The D.A. received the police file today and the case is under review. If charges are filed and Garrison is convicted, he faces a maximum of ten years in prison.

According to cops, Garrison's blood alcohol level was at least .16. He could also be prosecuted for driving under the influence. A DUI could be prosecuted based on alcohol, cocaine or both. Since there was bodily injury, a DUI could be prosecuted as a felony.

Cops also recommended that Garrison be prosecuted for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

As TMZ first reported, Garrison met Vahagn Setian and two 15-year-old girls hours before the crash. The teens invited the actor to a party, where people who attended tell TMZ they saw Garrison drink between four and seven shots of Grey Goose vodka in a short period of time. Garrison's high-powered celebrity defense lawyer, Harland Braun, tells TMZ his client was heading back to his apartment when the crash occurred. Setian was killed and the two girls were injured.

Are you kidding, 10 years max in prison would NEVER equate to the death of a young man!!!! I hope this is an error.

Btw, the ignorant fools making racist, sexual comments on here are probably the distributors of Lanes' cocaine habit... get a freakin life people!!

Some of the people on this site are SICK!! It is outrageous to me that anyone could make fun of, or rejoice in the misfortune of others.

What happened to Brandy and Lane could happen to anyone ! These are both TERRIBLE tragedies where people DIED and the ones responsible will have to live with the consequences for the rest of their lives.

It wouldn't be so funny if this happened to you or someone you loved.

Brandy needs to be hanged for being a prissy lying (about marriage to protect her "good" reputation, having a BASTARD CHILD out of wedlock!) snatch. lol She deserves a little jail time for the accident, too.

Lane needs MORE than 10 years for his actions. C'mon, justice system. What's the deal, yo?!

Don't joke. A boy is dead, people! Who cares if you think this jerk is cute.

Lane is a freak! Who in the hell goes partying with KIDS at his AGE? He was obviously up to no good and did a very stupid thing that cost a boy his life. Drinking and cocaine? Is he nuts? Believe me, the victims family will not only sue him for every last penny, his career is in the gutter. After this is over he may pray for jail time.

#10>>allyson,

Yeah, stupid ass but I don't see all the outrage with this "white" man as I did when these same lunitic a**holes were talking about Brandy. Do you? All most of these imbiciles are talking about is how cute his is. Go figure. Now tell me who the racists are. Apparently your stupid ass can't read all the racist WHITE a**holes, can you, so shut the F*** UP!
