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.

"4. I don't think Lane should be prosecuted or go to jail. But Brandy..they should hang her. Beyotch."

How can you even write that? What the f*** is wrong with people? And :

"2. Lane is soo fine!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I mean this guy took three teens into his car after leaving a club when he is already wasted. Wants to show off that he is a big movie star and goes to the party, drinks tons of shots of vodka. Maybe does coke there, or earlier, and then leaves with these kids, wrapping Land Rover into a tree and killing 1 of them? That's hot? What if it was your brother of boyfriend he killed, Lane wouldn't be hot then.
As for BRANDY, she was stone-cold sober and had an accident, accidents happen every second. I am sure she will live with the pain the rest of her life. She did nothing to make it happen, she might have looked down at her speedometer for a minute, checked the gas, changed the radio, opened her sunroof, anything. UNLESS YOU ARE JUST A RACIST! THEN YOU ARE AN IGNORANT FOOL AND YOU PROBABLY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO READ THIS FAR, SO I WON'T BOTHER EXPLAINING MYSELF ANY FURTHER.

WHERE IS CAROLE NOW? PROBABLY SLITTING HER WRISTS BECAUSE HER BOYFRIEND IS GUILTY.

What about the kids at the party? Why didn't they try to stop their good friends from getting inside a car w/ a drunk? I guess Lane was okay when he was going to buy booze for their asses. The dead kid was an immigrant with an expired visa anyway. GOOD RIDDANCE. Get that trash out of the USA.

all you people who keep calling him cute make me sick. he killed one of my best friends and is only getting 10 years maximum! this boy was an only child, by killing this boy he also ruined the lives of his innocent parents. lane deserves the f***ing death penalty. hes a PEDOFILE and a MURDERER. we all saw him drink and hit on many of my teenage female friends. the only reason my friend vahagn went into the car with that idiot was cause vahagn was scared lane would end up raping the other girls. Lane convinced the 2 girls to come with him on a trip back to pavillions market, where they all met at first, to buy more alcohol since lane bought them the grey goose at first to begin with. and this is cause he was too snobby to drink some absolute. MY FRIEND DIED SO THESE 2 GIRLS WOULDNT END UP BEING RAPE VICTIMS!! so tell me now ladies, whats cute about a PEDOFILE and MURDERER?!?!?!?

NUMBER 61....WOW
I CANT BELIEV YOU SAID: "What about the kids at the party? Why didn't they try to stop their good friends from getting inside a car w/ a drunk? I guess Lane was okay when he was going to buy booze for their asses. The dead kid was an immigrant with an expired visa anyway. GOOD RIDDANCE. Get that trash out of the USA."
first of all, my friend only got into the car so that the two 15 year old girls wouldnt have to be alone with that pedofile. second of all, lane wanted to still drink, and refused to have any absolute, so he convinced the 2 girls to come with him on a trip back to the supermarket where he first bought the minors alcohol to get some grey goose.
second of all, why would you want to defend a pedofile, its his fault, im only 17 and many of the people at the party were 16 and some even 15, we handle our liqour a lot differently than a grown man. he's 28, and the rest of us werent even old enough to drink, most of the people there werent even old enough to drive, he should be more responsible and think about the risks hes taking, and not just think about sleeping with 15 year old girls!!
now, whoever posted comment number 61, you're probably just some white trailer trash idiot. why would you disrespect someone who has passed away like that. HE WAS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS! and he lived in BEVERLY HILLS, one of the most exspensive cities to live in, meaning even though he was an immigrant HE STILL MADE MORE MONEY THAN YOUR PATHETIC A$$!!! SO GET THE F*CK BACK INTO YOUR TRAILOR AND SLEEP WITH YOUR COUSIN YOU PIECE OF WHITE TRAILOR TRASH!!!

Shut up Vaun's friend. If you were really his friend, you'd know he was here w/ his mom ONLY. Sitting next to him in lit class doesn't make him your best friend, f***ing moron. Write a godd*mn book, cry me a riva, build a bridge and get the f*** over it.

You cannont POSSIBLY be implying that Lane was the only person there drunk off his ass. You all were doing coke and drinking too. He was a good guy when he was going to get you idiots booze, but now that sh*t has went down, you make him the scapegoat. You f***ing kids should be charged with manslaughter, as you did nothing to help ANY of the people in the car.

You weren't old enough to drink? Thanks for admitting you were also boozing it up illegally. Kids like you are so f***ed up. Both you and your parents need to rot in hell.

And sweetie, I live in NYC. A hell of a nicer place than Beverly Hills. NYC has money AND class and enough sense to TAKE A F***ING CAB.

i was his good friend and i do live in beverly hills- trust me were a thousand times nicer and have so much more class than you could ever have. you cant tell me when you were our age you NEVER drank. you deny it then your just a f***ing liar.
and lmfao- he was not here was his mom only. are you f***ing retarded? he was the only kid of his parents. both of them! they were here just so he could get a great education, because bhhs is a really good f***ing school.
so f*** you all.
how dare you disrespect a good person like that.
if V was here he'd probably just laugh and be like 'you all are so funny, whatever' and not give it a second thought.

Yes, I can definitely see what a truly outstanding school BHHS must be.

The articulate and eloquent way you express yourself is testament to the high standard of education you've obviously attained.

Your English teacher must be very proud of you :-)

btw, there are several other useful adjectives in the english language apart than f***ng. You should try using them sometime! LOL

Erm, instead of talking about this 'Lane Garrison'(wich I didn't even know about before the accident) think about the kid that past away and what his family is going through.
