Lane Garrison

I Didn't Hurt My Ex-Girlfriend

Lane Garrison
says he did NOT hurt his ex-girlfriend Saturday afternoon ... but he's spending the night in jail because he's on a parole hold.

Garrison's lawyer, Harland Braun, just met with Garrison at the Beverly Hills jail. Braun says Garrison and GF Ashley Mattingly had broken up, but Garrison made a bad decision -- he went to her Beverly Hills apartment building to dog sit for his acting coach, who lives on the 3rd floor.

Garrison left the apartment unit and went downstairs to leave, but ran into Ashley in the lobby. Braun says Garrison told him ... the two began arguing about the failed relationship, and Ashley started screaming and threw Lane's cell phone against the wall. Braun says Lane then put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair, and then left. Lane says he did not harm Ashley.

Now get this. Lane -- who did prison time for crashing a car that killed a high school student -- is 6 days away from ending his parole. Braun says Ashley knew this and it could be her motivation for getting Lane arrested.

Braun says Ashley's injuries could have been self-inflicted.

The stakes are high for Lane. He was arrested for felony domestic violence and if the case sticks ... he could go back to prison in the manslaughter case as well as the domestic violence case.

Lane says he wants to stay in jail tonight so he can speak with detectives as soon as they come in Monday AM.

You don't have to "hurt" her. All you have to do is put your hands on her, and/or mistreat her.

You ungrateful prick!

Ah, the old I-was-in-her-building-to-walk-my-friend's-dog-and-I-ran-into-her-and-grabbed-her-shoulders-and-simply-placed-her-in-a-chair excuse. I think the judge has heard that one before.

"...put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair". He forgot to say that he "softly" placed his hands on her shoulders and "gently" put her in the chair.

I have zero sympathy for somebody to have an acting job and good $$ coming in and then they go out just f*ck themselves in these type of relationships. Maybe Mr Garrison should reconsider his choices made in the last few years. BTW, other than Prison Break, I've never heard of this guy.

"...he wants to stay in jail tonight so he can speak with detectives as soon as they come in Monday AM..."
That's rich. Taking a high road, never mind the hold placed by CalDOC.

Lane Garrison is a lying retard. He shouldn't have gone within a mile of his ex. He went over to her building to dog sit??? That's why they have dog sitters. She's just as stupid for dating this retard. They deserve each other.

First, he needs a new acting coach, because his acting job in this case is lousy! What a tool! And he wants to stay in jail to speak with detectives first thing in the morning? Idiot!

DO NOT speak with the detectives Lane!
(like he's gonna have access to read this lol)
The LAST thing you do is speak with detectives.
They take everything you say and twist it all around to meet their agendas. I hope his lawyer is smart enough to keep Lane away from the detectives.
The detectives are the LAST people you ever speak to or trust.
