Pleads Not Guilty

Lane Garrison just pled "not guilty" to misdemeanor domestic violence -- after he was charged with striking his ex-GF in the face during a blowout fight last month.

Lane has remained in custody since his April 22nd arrest due to unresolved concerns about his parole status, stemming from his 2007 vehicular manslaughter conviction.

He's scheduled to be let out on $50,000 bail on June 29th. A pretrial hearing has been set for July 11th.

TMZ posted surveillance footage of last month's fight -- which appears to show Lane hitting Ashley Mattingly in the face.

Lane has insisted from the beginning, he did NOT make contact with her -- he was simply trying to retrieve his phone, which Ashley had grabbed from him.

Lane's lawyer tells TMZ, the actor will attend AA while he's out on bail, and will NOT be contacting his ex whatsoever.

So why isn't TMZ reorting on Loser Lohan's latest f**k up?
-
She is 'demanding' to have a say in who plays Richard Burton in that 'Liz & Dick' movie - and demanding they pay for her to go to London (i.e. She wants a free European vacation) to try and find the right actor.
-
“Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don’t need to get Lindsay’s approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy.”
-
If it was REALLY about getting the right actor - she'd drop her own salary (the producers should do that for her!)
-
What a loser! She claims she's changed - and then is a nightmare for the producers. They should be smart and DROP HER NOW!

Possible attempt to slap...with a fail.
Hand didn't contact, even if it had, my grandma can slap harder.
I would say the same thing if it was a woman who tried, and failed, to slap a man, or if it was such a tiny weak little slap that it didn't hurt the man...same difference.
There was no real domestic violence so he's right in pleading not guilty.
If you want to see real domestic violence, go visit websites like....."The Weekly Vice"

You're rich Lane. You could've dumped her ass once you heard whatever set you off that night. You do need help.

Everyone starts out pleading "Not Guilty" including Bad Cops - including the Sheriff of San Francisco

And SF's DA totally waffled.

More like unresolved concerns about how the judge is going to justify letting off the hook AGAIN considering his parole status. But have no fear, the Californian Celebrity Court will find a way.

he needs to go away - don't forget his first story was he went to her Beverly Hills apartment building to dog sit for his acting coach, who lives on the 3rd floor. Garrison left the apartment unit and went downstairs to leave, but ran into Ashley in the lobby. -that was b4 the video tape showing him waiting out in front for her, and ran in the garage after her car

Why the f**k is she grabbing his phone in the first place?! Personally, I side with him because he has a valid reason for reaching towards her: he needed to retrieve his phone. End of story for me. Overall, people need to leave other people's property alone!!!

Oh, Lane - What a man you are, striking a woman. I guess driving like an a-hole and killing one of your passengers wasn't enough to wake your loser ass up. What a wuss you are. Let's meet up somewhere so I can spank your lily white ass, you s***bag.

I don't think anyone expected this loser to own up to his abuse.
