Lane Garrison

Charged with Domestic Violence

4/26/2012 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426_lane_garrison_01
Lane Garrison has been charged with misdemeanor domestic violence ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County District Attorney filed the charges, based on surveillance video which appears to show Lane slapping former girlfriend Ashley Mattingly in the face last Saturday at her Beverly Hills apartment.

Lane's lawyer tells TMZ he was merely reaching for his phone and it was not a slap, but apparently the D.A. begs to differ.

Garrison is being held without bail because he's on a parole hold. You'll recall Garrison was convicted of vehicular manslaughter back in 2007 and went to prison.

If convicted of domestic violence, he faces a year in jail, and he could do even more time if his parole is violated.

People might have believed this guy if he didn't have a hold of her hair in the video. Nice try though.

You would think he would avoid alcohol after KILLING SOMEONE but apparently not.

The city attorney files misdemeanors. The district attorney files felonies. Get your facts straight.

He should offer to clean up after her dog and for the
next year -


-Supply sandwich bags and whatnot.


The dog could then testify in court that Lane's not such a bad guy -

In order for this NOT to have been considered a "slap"?


Lane needed to take the video into post-production.


Fix the sound.


Put a Jay-Z song under it or something.

Lane shouldn't get Deion Sanders to testify at his trial.
