Lane Garrison

Domestic Violence Captured

On Security Camera [VIDEO]

4/23/2012 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_garrison_security_videoSurveillance video shows Lane Garrison slapping Ashley Mattingly square in the face after he waited for her outside her apartment -- a much different story from the one Lane told his attorney after his arrest for domestic violence.

TMZ obtained a copy of the building security camera recordings from Saturday ... and the full video (below) shows the "Prison Break" star sitting outside his ex-gf Ashley's Beverly Hills apartment building until she arrives home. When Ashley drives into the building's garage ... Lane is seen stumbling as he runs  after her.

Lane and Ashley are then seen walking into the building together, but clearly arguing as they get into an elevator. Ashley seems to be asking Lane to leave ... but when he refuses, she gets off the elevator -- and then things get physical.

Just outside the elevator -- in the apartment lobby -- Lane is seen grabbing Ashley's arm with his left hand ... and then slapping her face with his right. After a few more seconds of struggling ... Lane runs out of the building.

In the final clip ... Lane is seen chucking what we believe is Ashley's mobile phone into the street, and then stumbling up the front stairs and leaving.

Yesterday, Garrison's attorney Harland Braun said Garrison told him he was in the building to dog sit for a friend, and just happened to run into Ashley in the lobby. Braun says Garrison admitted there was an argument, but claimed he did not harm Ashley.

Garrison was arrested for felony domestic violence -- and has yet to post his $50,000 bail.  He is also on a parole hold because of his manslaughter conviction.

Hard to believe some commenters are blaming HER. Uh, the guy hung out outside her apartment, broke in by following her into the parking garage, started yelling at her, grabbing her, and hitting her. Hello? If you don't see this as violent, stalker behavior then you probably have a few issues yourself.

If you're actually *defending* the guy based on that video, seek help now.

Clearly this guy is in love (obsessed) which really sucks for him because it's hard to control such strong emotions:( Especially when they keep running away from you lol

Hi lied to his attorney? How stupid can you get. The one person you can and should tell the truth to in a criminal case is your lawyer. He can't "tell" on you, and if you lead him to believe nothing happened and then a tape like this shows up it makes it much harder for him to defend you than if you told him the truth from the start.

Umm you can clearly see that his drunk ass was waiting for her to get home. Then he wouldn't stop screaming in the elevator and you can clearly see he trying to get out. Then she is trying to get him to get out of the elevator and to leave the building. Instead his psychotic ass keeps screaming and slaps her. He is a POS and a girl trying to get him to leave by slightly pushing him out of the way in NO WAY deserves to be hit. Rewatch it again all of you who are saying that she instigated it. He was clearly waiting for her and he was drunk (he could barely walk) and then he kept grabbing her and then he hit her. Don't try to defend the guy because you are of the same gender. Sick.

Braun's a good attorney, but his client is a tool. As are a number of so-called "men."

See the DV stats for California.

The pretty boy murderer's paid liar-attorney-said that 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. So since we know that attorneys are all about the truth-that's what I'm believing. So everything you saw in that doctored video, forget it. As that crazy bitch he slapped said, he just needs to to to REHAB. That's all. That's just the way they go down. Bet you anything, she'll use this opportunity to play his savriour and come to his rescue, because she's all about hanging out with his Hollyweird buds. They're both fvcked-up.
