A security camera wasn't the only thing watching Lane Garrison throw down with his girlfriend last Saturday — there was a witness too!
And that doesn't help the former Prison Break actor's case. Although he has sworn the surveillance footage is misleading and he did NOT slap Ashley Mattingly, sources say the case is "looking very grim" for him.
Lane is maintaining that the slap we thought we saw was actually him reaching to grab his cell phone out of Ashley's hands. That could be, but here is what a law enforcement official had to say:
"A witness has come forward who has told the Beverly Hills Police Department they allegedly witnessed the incident between Ashley and Lane. The witness can't be seen on the surveillance video. This is very damaging evidence against Lane because the D.A. had been inclined to not file charges against Garrison because you can't clearly see him hit Ashley on the video. Lane told cops that he never hit Ashley and that he was simply trying to get his cell phone back that she was holding. The surveillance video has no sound, and this witness would be a very compelling witness for the prosecution. Prosecutors are going to be doing follow up interviews with the unidentified witness, but this is now looking very grim for Lane Garrison."
To think this guy was about to end his parole THIS Saturday and could have finally moved on with his life. Regardless of whether or not he hit her, it's such a shame he even allowed himself to get into this situation.
Was barging into your ex's apartment building to confront her about something worth it, Lane?
