Lane Garrison was drunk and on drugs when he caused fatal crash

There’s plenty of news lately about celebrities causing fatal car accidents. Prison Break star Lane Garrison went with some teen fans to a party in December and attempted to drive them home. He then rammed his SUV into a tree, killing a 17 year-old boy he just met that night. He was driving drunk, and now there’s evidence that he was doing cocaine before the crash:

Blood tests have revealed that Lane Garrison had “more than twice the legal limit” of alcohol in his system and was under the influence of cocaine during the fatal crash that killed a 17-year-old boy in December, this according to police.

A spokesman for the Beverly Hills Police Department announced today that his department has recommend that the L.A. County District Attorney file a felony charge of gross vehicular manslaughter against the “Prison Break” star….

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.

This is Garrison’s second known accident. He rear-ended a car at a light after leaving LA celebrity club Hyde in October of last year.

Garrison could get up to ten years in jail if he’s convicted on the charge of gross vehicular manslaughter. It’s doubtful his role as the now-deceased Tweener on Prison Break has prepared him for the real experience.

    I am sick of people behaving like this and thinking that they can do no wrong. I hope they throw the book at him.

    Let’s see how the star system will act there. High on drugs and drunk at the wheel? Anyone out there would receive the book. Let’s hope the juge he will face is not a diehard fan of the show…

    Why do people always ask this question?

    Let’s see: drunk – check, teenage girls, check, drugs – check, fast car – check. What the hell do you think he was doing?

    Trying to score some group sex I’d say. Why is this so hard to comprehend? Most guys do it, and definitely most celeb guys do it. It’s not some great mystery. He was probably too high to realise he couldn’t drive straight.

    I wonder if they’ll throw the book at Brandy? It’ll be interesting to compare the outcomes of both cases. Or has there already been a case for Brandy’s accident? (I don’t know, I’ve been away for a bit.)
