Lane Garrison pleads guilty
May 21st, 2007 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: none ]


Lane Garrison, as expected, plead guilty today in a Beverly Hills courtroom for the accident that killed Vahagn Setian. He plead guilty for vehicular manslaughter, felony DUI with bodily injury and supplying a minor with alcohol. Garrison could be sentenced for almost 6 years on August 2. According to TMZ the original date was set for August 1st, but Setian’s family asked to move it because that would have been Vahan’s birthday. I am glad that Garrison plead guilty and did not force Setian’s family to go through a long trial.

Doesn’t look like Lane Garrison will get a Prison Break?
March 8th, 2007 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: none ]

Entertainment Tonight has learned that Prison Break star Lane Garrison will be charged with with vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence and providing alcohol to a minor for the car accident that cause the death of 17 year old Vahagn Setian. If convicted he can face up to six years in jail. After he turns himself in today he will have to post a bail of $200,000 to get out of jail. According to In Touch Weekly, Joe Simpson will post that bail. "Lane is like a brother to Jessica and Ashlee and like a son to Joe and Tina," the insider tells In Touch. "They all feel terrible about this tragedy." A friend of Garrison's had this to say about him, "Lane has been a wreck over this tragedy. Guilty or innocent, he knows he'll have to live with this for the rest of his life." I am sure he feels bad about what happened, after all he is human, but he still should not have been out drinking and driving with minors. He is in his late 20's and should know better.

Police want Lane Garrison charged on 3 counts
February 19th, 2007 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: 1 ]

Beverly Hills police said today that they will recommend that prosecutors charge a 26-year-old actor with several felonies in connection with a December car crash that killed a Beverly Hills High School student. Lane Garrison, co-star of Fox television’s "Prison Break," was behind the wheel of a 2001 SUV when he lost control and plowed into a tree on South Beverly Drive near Olympic Boulevard on Dec. 2. The crash claimed the life of 17-year-old Vahagn Setian, a popular Beverly Hills High student. Two 15-year-old girls, who were not Beverly Hills High students, were seriously hurt. Authorities said they are seeking at least three charges, including gross vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Beverly Hills police said officers also found containers of alcohol inside Garrison’s SUV. Beverly Hills Police Chief David Snowden said Garrison had a blood-alcohol level of more than 0.15% — about double the state’s legal limit of 0.08%. Investigators presented the case to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, which will decide whether to charge the actor. A spokesman had no immediate comment.

LA Times 

I agree with the police that he should be charged with the crime and not get off easy just because he is a celebrity. I am sure he is sorry for what he did, but he was hanging out with minors and he drove drunk. He made the bed I am sure he does not want to lay in.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

TMZ is reporting that they spoke to several witness from the party who saw him doing lines of coke before he went on that fateful drive?

Joe Simpson fires Lane Garrison from Jessica’s Blonde Ambition?
December 22nd, 2006 under Lane Garrison, Nick Lachey/Jessica/Ashlee Simpson. [ Comments: none ]

Jessica Simpson’s father and manager Joe has fired troubled Prison Break star Lane Garrison from his daughter’s latest movie project. Garrison was a troubled youth in Texas when he moved in with his family’s minister–Joe Simpson. Even though he is still close to the Simpson family, Joe had to let him go from the film because he was set to play a character who was continually drunk. Simpson is currently filming Blonde Ambition with Luke Wilson in Shreveport, Louisiana. Garrison was involved in a car crash earlier this month that killed Vahagn Setian, 17, and injured two other passengers. Alcohol is thought to have been a factor in the crash. This is the latest trouble that Garrison has faced. Just one week after the crash, someone stole his identity and wiped out his entire bank account.

Hollywood 

If Joe Simpson has that much power on the movie,  no wonder that movie is being considered to go straight to DVD?

An emotional Lane Garrison was seen weeping and looking very distraught as he left a Los Angeles area church. Garrison was the driver in a weekend accident that killed 17-year-old Vahagn Setian and seriously injured two other teens. He exited Good Shepherd Church in Beverly Hills with tears streaming down his face and his head in his hands. The "Prison Break" actor showed up to the church at 11:30 Wednesday morning, spending 15 minutes inside before his tearful exit.

TMZ

I think he is sincerely remorseful for what happened that night.

Was Lane Garriosn downing shots at the teen party?
December 6th, 2006 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: none ]

TMZ has exclusively learned that Lane Garrison drank "several shots" of Grey Goose vodka at a party before driving a Land Rover that crashed in Beverly Hills, killing 17-year-old high school student Vahagn Setian and injuring two 15-year-old girls. This contradicts the account of Harland Braun, Garrison’s attorney, who told TMZ that the "Prison Break" star had consumed only one drink at the party, and that he doubted that Garrison was intoxicated when he took the wheel. Five eyewitnesses from the party tell TMZ that Garrison arrived at the party with Setian and two women, whom he had met earlier at a gas station. They say Lane brought a bottle of Grey Goose vodka to the party and unveiled the bottle to the crowd with a flourish. The gathering was described by several attendees as a "kick back of around 30 people." The eyewitnesses, all acquaintances of Setian, say that Garrison then started taking shots of the vodka and offering shots to other partygoers. Several eyewitnesses also said photographs were taken of Garrison consuming alcohol. Later in the evening, when the alcohol at the party was running low, the eyewitnesses say that Garrison agreed to drive out to buy more, and took Setian and two girls with him. Four hours elapsed, they say, before they became concerned and drove out to look for Garrison, Setian and the young women. After discovering the accident, they then drove to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where they learned that Setian had died. Attorney Harland Braun tells TMZ that ultimately the results of Garrison’s blood alcohol test could tell the story. The results of that test are two weeks away.

TMZ 

It just keeps getting worse for him. The other night KTTV interviewed a friend of Vagahan Setian who said Setian only went on that fateful ride because the girls did not feel comfortable being alone with Lane Garrison in the car.

Lane Garrison’s lawyer gives some details about the fatal crash.
December 4th, 2006 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: none ]

TMZ has learned that "Prison Break" star Lane Garrison has hired powerhouse defense attorney Harland Braun in connection with last Saturday’s fatal car accident. Lane was at the wheel in his Land Rover on Saturday night when it crossed a median in Beverly Hills and crashed into a tree. A 17-year-old boy sitting in the backseat was killed and two 15-year-olds were injured. Braun tells TMZ that Garrison had never met the three teenagers before the night of the accident. Braun says Garrison was at a local supermarket earlier in the evening when the trio recognized him in the checkout line and asked him if he wanted to go to a party. Braun says Garrison went to the party and had one drink. Braun says Garrison also had one margarita at a Mexican restaurant that night, but that was the extent of his alcohol consumption. Braun tells TMZ that as Garrison was leaving the party to meet a woman at his apartment, the three teens asked to accompany him. According to sources, the boy was an only child and was extremely well liked by his peers. Braun says Garrison has no recollection of the accident, which Braun says rendered him unconscious. In fact, Braun claims Garrison’s first memory was waking up at the Century City Hospital emergency room with a taxi coupon on his lap that had been given to him by hospital staff so he could get home. Braun says he was not told by hospital personnel that someone had died. He learned of the death later from a friend, Braun says, and was "totally despondent." Braun says a sample of Garrison’s blood was taken at the hospital, but it could take several weeks before the results are in. Braun says he doubts Garrison was intoxicated, but also says, "Who knows if someone put something in his drink at the party." Braun also says Garrison’s Land Rover had been experiencing alignment issues as of late and had been pulling to one side, and added that the SUV had brake problems. Braun says he is forwarding repair receipts to the police. According to Braun, "Nobody knows what happened, it’s a mystery."

TMZ 

This just gets worse and worse. I still want to know why a 26 year is so hard up he felt the need to party with 3 minors. I mean am I the only who finds that sick?

Lane Garrison was the driver in the fatal car crash
December 4th, 2006 under Lane Garrison. [ Comments: none ]

Law enforcement sources from the Beverly Hills Police Department tell TMZ "Prison Break" star Lane Garrison was behind the wheel when his SUV crashed into a tree, killing one of the occupants. The accident occurred Saturday night in Beverly Hills. Sources say one of the passengers, a 15-year-old girl, was in critical condition and has a relative who works for the city of Beverly Hills. One source says the 17-year-old boy who was killed went to the local high school which is presumably Beverly Hills High. We’re told Garrison was not arrested or booked after the accident. Typically, after a "K" car crash injury — police jargon when someone is killed — cops will ask the driver to submit to a voluntary blood-alcohol test.

TMZ 

Not looking good for him. I still want to know what a 26 year old man is doing with a 17 year old boy and 2 15 year old girls? BTW if you read his Wikipedia bio, you will see that he lived with Joe, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson when he was in Texas…wonder what they have to say about the crash?

UPDATE: People reports that he might’ve been drinking at the time of the crash. I wonder if the minors were drinking too?
