You may recall the Lane Garrison accident from early December. By way of utterly depressing review: the former Prison Break actor made some teenage friends at a Beverly Hills grocery store one Saturday night, accompanied them to a house party, allegedly downed several shots of vodka, then later struck a tree with them in his SUV, injuring two and killing Beverly Hills High School student Vahagn Setian. A press conference held by Beverly Hills police today delivered the results of their investigation, including three separate charges, listed in decreasing order of fucked to fuckedest:
Authorities said they are seeking at least three charges, including gross vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Beverly Hills police said officers also found containers of alcohol inside Garrison's SUV.
Beverly Hills Police Chief David Snowden said Garrison had a blood-alcohol level of more than 0.15% — about double the state's legal limit of 0.08%.
Harold Braun, Garrison's lawyer and title holder of Today's Hardest Working Man in Showbusiness, had originally stated the actor had consumed a grand total of two drinks that night, a "margarita" (perhaps the kind served in a festive five-quart plastic sand pail that did Paris Hilton in, as well), and "a drink from the bottle of alcohol that he had just purchased." But while Braun had originally postulated that "someone put something in the drink," we're pretty sure he was referring to some kind of date-rape drug, and not a 1.5 liter splash of citrus-infused Grey Goose chased with a couple of fat rails.
