Lane Garrison To Be Charged With Vehicular Manslaughter


Lane Garrison of 'Prison Break' fame will voluntarily surrender today at 130pm in order to be formally charged with vehicular manslaughter. The charge arises from his December car accident which killed his 17 year old passenger. The passenger was a male high school student named Vahagn Setian. At the time of his arrest, Garrison's blood alcohol level was .20 which is more than twice the legal limit of .08 allowed in California. Witnesses have also stated that Garrison was doing lines of cocaine and downed several shots of vodka before getting behind the wheel. Garrison was on the way to the store to get more vodka when the deadly crash occurred. Garrison faces a maximum of 6 years behind bars. Garrison potentially faced more time behind bars, but for some AWFUL reason, the DA chose to not charge Garrison with gross negligence. Honestly, I do not know what would ever constitute gross negligence if this doesn't. Bail will probably be set at $200,000.

Yeah, but would you feel sorry if it wasn't a hollywood star? I mean, yes, I do agree he probably regrets the action but you know what - he made a CHOICE to drive that car being intoxicated and high and I think just like everyone else, he should pay for doing that - he took a risk w/someone's kid who was only 17 and this kid has no choice now.. and that isn't even getting into all the other people that happened to be on the road that were put at risk because of his actions. He is old enough to know better and I think thought like so many of the hollywood stars do that they can do no wrong and can break laws w/out any consequences. NOW he regrets it but now is too late.

I have no pity for this idiot. Who picks up kids to drink and do coke with, when they are so incapacited they drive into a tree on the other side of the road? He's going to get just what he deserves.
