I am sure that everyone by now has read about what Lane Garrison had in his system during the fatal crash he was involved in last December
. If for some reason, you have not read about, you may do so here.
The reason I am writing about it is to show you how the gossip world works in conjunction with lawyers. I think we can all admit TMZ.com gets videos that no one else does and definitely have sources. That being said, look at the article they ran last night.
TMZ spoke exclusively with several witnesses who claim they watched Lane
Garrison snort lines of cocaine just before the fatal crash.According to our
sources, Garrison looked “very high” and his “eyes were glazed” at the the
party, which was attended mostly by teenagers.According to our sources, Garrison obtained the coke from another attendee in an upstairs bedroom of the Beverly Hills home where seven or eight people were partying.
They report that Garrison also had six or seven shots of Grey Goose vodka at the same time. A short time later, Garrison was the driver in a fatal crash that killed Vahagn Setian and injured two other teens. Garrison could face charges of gross
vehicular manslaughter, which carries a maximum sentence of ten years in
I put the italics in the above section, NOT TMZ. I did so to illustrate a point. Did TMZ know about this cocaine use and the purchase of the cocaine prior to yesterday's announcement that cocaine was found in Lane Garrison's system? All media outlets reported the Grey Goose shots, so how come not the cocaine. I am not saying TMZ did this, but sometimes stories can be created after the fact to fit what is discovered. It is a great story and a huge scoop, and if they had multiple witnesses, I am surprised it did not run. Lane Garrison is not going to sue them because he would look foolish arguing that he purchased and used the cocaine somewhere else. However, it is not irrelevant in his criminal trial. If he bought and used the cocaine many hours before the accident or even the day before, that might have an effect. In addition, the homeowner may not like to be shown as allowing drug sales in their house. However, they did allow underage drinking so they are not likely to be running to the courts anytime soon either. Just something to think about when you read after the fact dramatic accounts.
