Garrison left home and moved in with Joe Simpson -- the manager
and father of pop stars Jessica and Ashlee Simpson.
Lane Garrison graduated from J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas in 1998, and at 18, drove to Los Angeles to become an actor. Lane Garrison's first job was a backpack commercial that paid $3,500.
Lane Garrison recently completed work on the second season of Prison Break. His character, Tweener, was killed off by letting one of the antagonists kill him.
Lane was involved in a minor traffic accident on October 19, 2006 after leaving Hyde nightclub in Los Angeles. Garrison was behind another vehicle at a four-way, signalized intersection when he was surrounded by people who approached from down the street yelling, "Stop the car, stop the car!" After Lane begins speaking to one of them, another man continues yelling, "Hey, stop the car", and a third vehicle begins honking and flashing its high beams. No damage appears on either vehicle, although it is unclear from paparazzi film of the incident if Garrison had struck another vehicle earlier or if he had struck the vehicle ahead of him in traffic.
Lane was involved in a more serious car accident on December 2, 2006 at approximately 11:50 PM in Beverly Hills, California. 17 year-old Vahagn Setian died and two 15 year-old girls were injured when Garrison's SUV crashed into a tree. According to Garrison's lawyer, Harland Braun, Garrison met the three teens at a supermarket and accompanied them to a house party. Garrison claims he had one drink (as well as a margarita at a Mexican restaurant). When leaving to meet a woman at his apartment, the teens asked to accompany him and were all in the backseat when the accident occurred.
According to his lawyer, Lane has no recollection of the accident, and was "despondent" when he found out the news of the boy's death. A sample of his blood was taken, and will determine his blood-alcohol content within several weeks.
Lane's 2001 Range Rover had allegedly previously been experiencing faulty brakes and alignment issues. Copies of the repair receipts were sent to police.
According to Setian's friends, Lane's story is untrue. They say Garrison allegedly met the teens at a gas station and accompanied them to the party with a bottle of Grey Goose vodka. Garrison took several shots before leaving with the teens to buy more alcohol, and after several hours, the rest of the people at the party became worried. They then left, only to find the accident and discover that all of the car's occupants were in the hospital. They also claim to have pictures showing Lane drinking.
