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.

Not sure why people were disliking my comments... this guy is a tool for sure, but as I said, from what we see in the video, he didn't make any physical contact with her until after she'd pushed him at least twice and was swinging at him. There is no excuse for hitting her on the face like that, NONE, but she's not exactly innocent here from what we can see in the video.

If she were that threatened by him, all she needed to do was call for help rather than engage. She physically attacked him first, multiple times... and for that if he were to be arrested, I think she should be as well. I've watched the video several times. She pretty calmly walked in from the garage with him, and it's clear that she was trying to push him away, multiple times to get him to leave. He didn't lay a hand on her until she pushed him pretty hard. If she were that upset, she should have stayed in her car and called for help, or hit the emergency button on the elevator rather than let him in the building.

Again, though... the guy is a tool and didn't need to slap her like that, but she's not an angel here. She kept pushing him and pushing him, and they both should be arrested. I'm inclined to believe the idea that the ex-gf wanted to make it ugly because she knew what would happen. The idiot deserved to be arrested to for this... I mean, 6 days shy of his parole ending? Stupid, Stupid, stupid! All the same... she's no innocent, either. She's the one who initiated the physical contact and it could have been avoided.

He's going back to jail. Period.

Didn't look like much of a slap. They were both tugging and pushing. No need to only punish him. It's either both or neither.

I am sure she deserved it. Women take advantage of the fact they are women and think men won't retaliate.

Lane Garrison nobody to me. Except a woman beater.
