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.

She put her hands on him first,by pushing him out of the elevator. Then she put her hands on him when he was stepping out of the elevator, and his hand made contact with her face...... She was the aggressor and needs to stop playing the victim role.

Remember that this POS already killed a 17 year old passenger in his car after leaving a high school party. A party where he was supplying the alcohol. He was 27 at the time and partying with high school kids. He was found to be drunk and on coke but got off after serving only 91 days. His career is now over as well it should be.

As big of a sh*t bag this guy is, if you slow down the video, he doesn't actually slap her, he either misses or is grabbing at the phone. Good chance he gets off because it does show that she initiated contact. Hope some guy named Bubba makes him his "girlfriend" in the meantime.

Weak cowardly little boys hit women.
Pretty sick that this self entitled weak guy needs to hit a woman to feel powerful.

Sarah, you are a disgrace to the female gender. He clearly was drunk and violating her space. Regardless, women by nature are physically weaker, so all a man has to do for "self-defense" is restrain a woman. You are moronic and so is anyone that thinks this is deserved. As a victim of domestic abuse, I constantly had to shove my ex boyfriend when he backed me into corners and imprisoned me against my will. So according to you, that justified him punching me in the face? And although I wish I had evidence like this when I took him to court, shame on TMZ for showing this. As a victim you sadly feel shamed and embarrassed because of people like Sarah. So having it displayed like this is the last thing you want. Shame on you, TMZ for having such little respect for women and domestic abuse victims.

She's baaaack    

Quite a guy isn't he? I can't believe she didn't land a knee hard in his nuts then when he went down she could have stood on the offending hand with her heel.

He didn't slap her in the face...he grabbed for her cell phone. I guess the people who posted this are blind as bats.
