Lane Garrison

I Was In a Funeral Feud

With My Playmate Girlfriend

2/29/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The 911 domestic violence call that sent cops scrambling to Lane Garrison's apartment was triggered by a dispute between Lane and his Playboy Playmate girlfriend over who got invited to a funeral ... TMZ has learned.

As we first reported, Beverly Hills police went to Lane's house Monday night after someone in the apartment reported the incident. No one was arrested, but Lane was taken to the hospital for an unrelated medical issue.

We've now learned ... Lane's girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly, was upset that Lane was invited to her ex-boyfriend's funeral earlier in the day but she was not. It is unclear why the family of Craig Rogers made Ashley persona non grata, but we're told it triggered a heated argument between Ashley and Lane.

Ashley -- who is up for Playmate of the Year -- felt Lane should not have gone to the funeral because it showed disrespect for her.

As for the hospital visit ... sources tell us when cops arrived, Lane had a panic attack, so he was taken to the emergency room and released shortly after.

As for why he had the panic attack, we're told Lane has been vigilant about keeping his nose clean after getting released from prison in a manslaughter case. He was driving under the influence when his car crashed and killed a 17-year-old high school student who was a passenger in the car.

We're told no one was injured during the argument between Lane and Ashley. If cops had seen any trace of injury, an arrest would have been made.

That's not a problem. Just because the police wasn't called, doesn't necessarily imply that nothing happened. He just probably is one of these decent, lovely,good and kindly gentleman, chivalrous when dealing with individuals of the weaker sex, that would never, ever think of getting the police involved should one of them thrash him within an inch of his life. And presumably there would be family members attending that would voucher for that. And should a a friend that was present at the time as well, would obviously didn't not witness any violence of any kind have the nerve of bothering him with calls the following days as to enquire to his/her well being, he would probably not have wanted to bother her with the incident and not pick up her calls :-) et voilà! :-)

What a loser this Garrison guy is...No loyalty what so ever to his girl. I bet you can disrespect his girl right in front of him and he would just smile...

Since when do people get invites to funerals? In my experiences, if you want to go, you just show up it ain't a party.

Looking at the fact of his past; he has been given a second chance; maybe because it's Hollyweird or because he use to be on a tv show? I hope he can appreciate the second chance and make something good out of it???? Great now I sound and write like a modern day PollyAnna; so much for the Glad Game!
