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.

And, let's not forget the interview she just gave on TMZ Live. She outright admitted that she didn't call the cops, didn't want him to get in to trouble, etc. It was someone else who called for help... and only after she realized there was a video did she cooperate with cops, tricking him to come back to her apartment. And even THEN she doesn't want him to go to jail, just to rehab. The way she was talking, it was pretty clear that she knew she played a role in it it. He may have been drunk or high, but it's really clear that she willingly let him in the building and did the shoving. I don't defend the jerk that hit her one bit... but she's clearly a part of this and isn't a sweet innocent victim. That audio interview she gave was pretty telling - I think she was fibbing about what happened off camera as much as he was.

Umm, for all of you stating that she instigated, did you not see him entering the garage after her car opened the gate, that is unlawful entry into a gated area.

This stalker needs to pay.

though its not worth the slap, she pushed him out of the elevator and kept pushing him until the next camera kicked in.

I would ask her why she would get into the elevator in the first place.

Boxing yourself inside an elevator with no where to run, or no one to hear your screams would be the the most stupidest thing anyone could do.

Ashley Mattingly appears to be the aggressor, which does mean Lane Garrison should slap her either!

You know, I really wanted to believe him when he got out of prison, when he said he had changed and learned from his mistakes. People deserve second chances in life and this douchebag blew his! He knows better than to hit that woman! Furthermore, lose his precious freedom and go back to becoming someones girlfriend in prison.... mmh, mmh, mmmm (shaking my head)!

my god this is ****ing stupid.. first off no sound so who knows wtf was she even saying and that slap was not abuse..
she could have hit him off camera..

This is like Trayvons case and the media fail with their flip flop reporting of every piece of so called evidence..

I come from a home with a abusive father and this is bs..

Why when a woman is involved in a domestic violence situation everyone always points the finger at them for instigating it? No man has the right to hit a woman no matter how fed up and angered they are. That said, if you do hit a woman you are not a man at all, just a sad, despicable excuse for a human being. I hope this video sends a messege to other violent men out there, eventually you will get caught and there are serious concequences for doing so.

SOOOO now that the truth has started to come out....from Ashley's own mouth.....let's recap, shall we?

1) She now admits she called him there that night. He was not "stalking" or "harassing" her. He was invited.
2) She didn't want the cops getting involved because she fully expects to be blamed, because even SHE admits she was the aggressor.
3) She finally had to come forward and start leaking the truth when someone, who also wanted their 15 mins of fame, leaked the surveillance video showing her to be the aggressor.
4) She then tries to cover up her lies by taking a picture of her chest right after the incident (the only place she said she was struck, fyi, so the slap in the video is obviously not him hitting her), and you can tell if she was hit, it was very, very not hard enough to show up on film. Feel free to read up and look at the photos right here on TMZ.
So, to all of you all too happy to look past her hitting Lane because he was stalking her and he had sprung upon her like a ninja, your whole theory just got $hit on by the fame whore herself.
